Christmas Toy Drive & Lots of DJ fun @ Pissed Off Pete's in San Francisco





What's up y'all, I'll be spinning with DJ Mista-B, Mike Boo, Benny Flan, Max Kane, and DJ Cue at Pissed Off Pete's in the Mission in San Francisco.  It'll be a Christmas toy drive!

It will be a fun night of music for a good cause. Please bring a new toy to donate if you can and we'll make sure it gets to a child who will be very grateful.

All good music. All good fun. All good.
