Architecture in Helsinki - I Might Survive

****RSVP HERE****

*SATURDAY MARCH 29*
+++ NO COVER +++ 
$3 WELLS ALL NIGHT 
10pm-2am @ Banzai Sushi & Cocktail Bar
(682 South Ave, next door to Lux)

Traveling coast-to-coast on his ‘Catch Me If You Can’ Tour - LA’s DJ A-Ko returns to Rochester on Saturday March 29th, touching down at Banzai Sushi.

His unique style blends true-school turntablist technique with the party-rocking multi-genre open-format style he helped pioneer in Rochester where he was voted ‘Best Club DJ’ by CITY Newspaper in 2008. 

He’s playing back-to-back with genre-clash style master general DJ Alykhan! Known for his eclectic yet tasteful sets, he delivers soulful nu-disco and dance-friendly indie jams, while slicing and dicing throwback rap, dancehall, and pop classics with ease and precision.

You can expect fun house-party vibes as they seamlessly blend everything from Motown to Madonna, and Wu-Tang to Weezer live and direct from the turntables.

****
Open-format anything-goes genre-clash dance party, no cover, and $3 wells all night with two ridiculously talented DJs - how can you go wrong?! 

P.S. the kitchen stays open (full menu!) until 1AM (in case you were wondering!)
