Ol’ Dirty Sundays Website Launch Party w/DJ Ynot/DJ Sven DJs Casper and LeSage celebrate the launch of a new website for the few-years-old Ol’ Dirty Sundays weekly hip hop dance parties, and bring in a few guests from Miami to work the decks: vet hip hop turntable pro DJ Ynot, and DJ Sven, who infuses reggae, jazz, electro and Latin joints into his mixes.

She’s backed by keysman John Sipher and drummer Jerry Hale. (Skipper’s Smokehouse, Tampa)
