Reaganomix DJ: Robert Ham

February 26 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

DJ Bob Ham does not shy away from making strange connections between '80s radio pop and deeply underground sounds: Post-punk, early hip-hop, punk, glossy R&B, and a touch of metal to boot. And he'll do so while dancing and playing air bass along with every track. It might not make you any better at Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure, but your eventual defeat will sting a little less.
