Giveaway: Mix Master Mike at George’s

This contest has ended. Winners have been emailed. (Check your email)

When mentioning DJ Mix Master Mike, it’s common to throw in the words “Beastie” and “Boys” somewhere in the first sentence (see, I did it myself).

It’s an oversimplified explanation of who the guy is, though.

It’s probably more appropriate to say that he’s one of the most important turntablists in hip-hop history. Of course, it all depends on who you’re talking to. After all, not everyone knows exactly what a turntablist is and it’d be hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of the Beastie Boys.

From his three-year winning stretch at the DMC World DJ Championships to being honored with a lifetime achievement award from the International Turntablist Federation to his revolutionary collaborations with DJ Q-Bert (all of which happened pre-Beasties, btw), it’s clear to see that there’s a lot more to the story than just Mix Master Mike’s 13-year residency as the Beastie Boys’ DJ.

If you know, then you know. If you don’t, though, who cares? The fact is, Mix Master Mike packs the house at George’s when he comes to town and he’ll be back next weekend. Enough said.

We’ve got two pair of tickets to give away to two lucky winners. Here we go.
