Beastie Boys DJ and and mad professor of all things turntablism Mix Master Mike is coming to Epic next month for a headlining show celebrating Mardi Gras. The show, scheduled for March 4, was just announced Thursday afternoon. Mike was last in the Twin Cities stumping for Barack Obama with the Beasties in 2008, when he sent the wheels of steel smoking with his opening set, cutting and slicing Beastie tracks as well as new and old hip-hop gems into one unforgettable sonic collage.
Another fun fact we remember about Mike in our fair city is that he once graciously accepted turntables as payment for a gig in the Twin Cities area many years ago.
