PGB is happy to offer up a pair of tickets to Monday’s show at the Paradise featuring Philly’s DJ/Producer extraordinaire RJD2! RJD2 usually comes through town once a year, and without exception his shows are regarded as among the best anyone has seen – regardless of your genre preferences. The influence RJD2 has had on the underground and indie hip hop scene cannot be denied, and we’ve got your chance to see his groundbreaking style for yourself! This tour is in support of his brand new album, Colossus, released January 20th. He promises to have some tricks up his sleeve for this time around – check out this excerpt from his website:
This is the most planned out/intricate/thought out/awesomest show I’ve ever been a part of. Easily. By far. I can say this with a clear conscience. Costume changes. Custom built electronics. New songs and old. 3 turntables, 2 mixers, 1 sampler, 1 serato rig(PLUS a crate of vinyl), guitar, bass, drums, vintage and new analog synthesizers, visuals, and 2 hand puppets to boot.
RJ, you had us at hand puppets. Want your chance to win? Just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “RJD2″ and you will be automatically entered to win a pair of tickets, courtesy of PGB and The Paradise! Still not convinced you want to check out this show? Then check out this video for “Let There Be Horns” off the new album, featuring a drug-addled, lovelorn minotaur in a wife beater. Nope, couldn’t make that up if I tried. RJD2 can though, and if he can come up with something as crazy as that just imagine what he can do live with a couple of turntables and some samples. Enter now, winner will be selected on Friday!
