Whats poppin’ kinky humans?
SKOLi here! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, been crazy busy with gigs, life and all that Jazz. I want to take this Saturday morning (which typically consists of cartoons and cereal…yeah I’m a grown kid so what!?!) to update you all on one of the craziest weeks of my life.
So Monday April 27th I get a call from the head of Marketing at the Nike Chicago Flagship Store on Michigan Ave (where I work part-time/DJ for on occasion). When I first glanced at the number I figured either a) they were calling to ask me to work an event or b) they were calling to tell me to come in for a shift. Both scenarios were welcome ($$$) but paled in comparison to the actual reason for the call.
To my surprise she called and asked if I was available to DJ that week (Tuesday through Saturday) for in store NFL Draft events. I replied by asking her “is an elephant heavy?” (obviously). Now this isn’t the first time I’ve been asked to DJ at Nike events, but for some reason, in my mind I knew this opportunity was special for a number of reasons. First, my set and setup have improved drastically since the last time I DJed for Nike (almost a year ago). Second it’s the NFL Draft week in Chicago so I have no choice but to put on a good show!
I thought to myself “Self, how we gonna get this joint crackin’ lobsters?” Then I realized over the course of this year I have gained very talented friends (DJs, performers, photographers, artists etc.) why not throw the lob to some of these individuals. To make a long story we got Hella Kinky the whole week and had a blast doing so!
