Even Grandmater Flash, the "first dj to play the turntables as a musical instrument", uses a laptop now. That said, he was the only DJ at Webster Hall on Friday night that ALSO had a crate of records with him. He played the usual hip hop favorites and the occasional rock hit by bands like The White Stripes and Nirvana. When not mixing, he could often be found at the front of the stage hyping up the crowd and his long career that includes an induction into into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. More pictures below....

Where the white women at?

As Butt-head said of Michael Stipe's, those thingies aren't very big.

I love the look on the face of the gal immediately to the right of the guy on whose shoulders the shirtless one is perched. Those are my sentiments exactly.
