NYC: Joe Claussell to DJ “Live @ Best Buy” – June 17

 

Woo! Best Buy rules for this. All summer long, they are hosting what they call “Live @ Best Buy,” which is a live in-store series featuring talented local musicians. It was actually conceived by a store employee – pretty awesome. More awesome? It’s free. This Friday, Best Buy is hosting one of their featured performances with Joe Claussell, a forward thinker and legendary soulful house music producer and DJ. You may have heard us talk about his recent release, Hammock House: Africa Caribe, which came out mid-May on Fania Records. Perhaps you even attended our record release event with him! 6pm at the Union Square Best Buy – this performance isn’t one you’ll want to miss.
