For Chris Manak (aka Peanut Butter Wolf), the 90s will always hold a special place on his turntables. After starting his official career as a recording artist in 1990, this revered L.A. DJ/producer birthed Stones Throw Records, a premier source of eclectic hip hop culture, in 1996. Tonight, he kicks off his 999 Tour at The Glass House that pays homage to the era of G-Funk, New Jack Swing and those hip hop jams that still get the party going. It's the latest in his tradition of triple digit shindigs ( he's hosted events titled 666, 777,888 over the last several years). Tickets for tonight are $15.
The flier is pretty self explanatory: come out and party with PB Wolf and his gang of legendary DJs and performers for 9 consecutive nights in 9 different area codes at a party that is all about, you guessed it, the 90s. As far as LB and OC are concerned, you can look forward to catching the party on Sep. 3 at Club 149 in LB, Sep. 6 at Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa and Sep. 8 at The Continental Room in Fullerton. And in case you forgot what the 90s looked like (I know, it seems sooo long ago), PB is ready to refresh your memory.
Stepping into his role of Video DJ, the night promises a barrage of Clinton-era classics that bridge the gap between the golden age of hip hop and today's radio faves. Joining the roster for all 9 shows will be the legendary DJ/producer Prince Paul (De La Soul), DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill), Rhettmatic, Dam Funk (who we wrote about not too long ago), Mayer Hawthorne and Pase Rock. As if you need any more reasons to drag your ass to at least on of this wild parties, PB also has decided to tease you with a little bit of you tube promotion . You can tell they really put a lot of time into this. Check out the little tyke in the overalls.
