Review of the San Francisco DMC Regional DJ Battle in the Amoeblog

For those who didn't make it out last night, check out my homeboy Billy Jam's report on the San Francisco DMC regional DJ battle in the Amoeblog.

There's a photo of me in the article!  I didn't compete in the battle.  I was managing the stage along with DJ Mr. B.  I also jumped on the turntables for a quick second during the showcase of DJ Quest and DJ Cue, but I couldn't keep up with DJ Quest's awesomely fast electro power scratching.
