March 28 Street Life with Guest DJ Maydoubt

March 15, 2013 | Akbar | Permalink

Thursday, March 28, brings another great Guest DJ to Street Life at Akbar! DJ Maydoubt is also known as Alex Luke. Alex is a long-time music-industry tastemaker, quite notably as the guy who was hand-picked by Steve Jobs to run iTunes. Alex also programmed and/or was a DJ at some of the country’s most forward-thinking alternative radio stations, and most recently did A&R at EMI, where he signed Capital Cities and Gold Fields. DJ Maydoubt is a recurring guest at School Night, and we’re really looking forward to his set at Street Life.

The music starts at 10:00, there’s no cover, and Akbar will be pouring $4 vodka wells at the back bar!
