I was digging through my collection of old flyers and found a few I'd designed for our events. It's a shame that flyers are so quick and disposable now. Wish there more printed, collectible handbills like gig posters.
This one is for the Life Sucks Die Issue 7 release party at 7th Street Entry, December 2000. It was my first ever DJ gig in Minneapolis and was also on my birthday. Oh snap!

It's been a while since I listened to this one... Coldcut's cut & paste masterpiece from 1987, "Say Kids What Time Is It?" Back to back classic breaks, beats, and snippets and sliced together with the most finesse.
