It’s hard to find good DJs in this town. Wait. What we meant was: it’s hard to find good DJs in this town who play... songs with human voices in them. Let alone the human voices of, say, Bob Dylan. Or Rick James. They exist, though. Promise. And here’s where to find them...

Night Train at the Sound Table

Sound Check at Ammazza

Sound Check at Ammazza

What you’ll hear: ’70s. Maybe a little ’80s. More Elton John than you’re probably comfortable with.
Who you’ll see: Intellectual types in tinted glasses having semi-heated debates about whether or not all of Rubin’s cards were, in fact, marked in advance.
What you’ll drink: Basil vodka. It’s what the ’70s would do.
