So, Red Bull has their caffeine-addicted hands in a whole lot of weird pies it seems. They like to get dudes on wheeled planks to launch themselves over concrete, they’re the poster drink for rich dudes in white suits wearing aviators in dark clubs that are trying to get laid and hell, they even dropped a fucker out of a reallllllly high plane once, and the world went flippin’ apetits over it. To that list of odd-if-not-sometimes-awesome-endorsements, Red Bull has added DJing.
Thre3style, a truly global competition is having its first of five local qualifier rounds this January 25 at Speakeasy on the Avenue for the 2013 Thre3style.
So what’s the damn dealio with this shiat? Welp, DJs Chicken George, “Babyg” Jorge and 2012 World Champ Four Color Zack will be judging a fifteen min set consisting of no less than three distinct genres by five of Austin’s finest. That list includes local names Bird Peterson, Nick Nack, Donnie Dee, Kid Slyce and recent Lords of Wax champ DJ Chorizo Funk. Whoever “rocks the party” the most (meaning dancing, to you old foagies), wins a cash prize and an invite to the Regional Final in Dallas on Feb 23.
This thang be free with RSVP, so get at it early at Do512 here, otherwise you’ll be throwin’ down $5 at the door. This show also includes a set by the former champ Four Color Zack, and who knows, one of the winners might find themselves taking the whole thing home at the finals this year! A great chance to check out and support Austin DJs awaits ye, so get on that Facebook page, get to Do512 and RSVP your tiny little dancin’ butts to this competition.
