Here are some photos of my homeboys dj gig at the House of Yes in Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago. He’s visiting NYC for a month from Cali where he’s been transplanted for a while. Was great catching up with my old dj buddies and doing some dance floor shuffles with a beer in my hand and some friends around me.. Good times..
These kids look straight out of a dance battle movie. I’ve seen them both before in the long ride from Columbus Circle to 125th st on the A express. Simply amazing. They’re doing backflips in a moving subway train! Different variations of flips too. I saw them do a crazy stripper pole move, twirling around the place.
