SCRATCH THAT ITCH

Everyone may have caught football fever this weekend, but the DMC World Championships are considered the Super Bowl for DJs — hands down. On Saturday, DMC World Champion and pioneering turntablist DJ Qbert brings his wizardry to Gotham for the 2014 DMC NYC DJ Battle at Webster Hall. If you aren’t familiar with Qbert’s skills, shame on you because this man embodies pure genius on the decks. No pre-set programming here, my friends.

Saturday night’s event at Webster Hall puts mix masters to the test for the regional, but previous champs include international legends such as A-Trak, DJ Craze and DJ Shiftee, while U.S. champions include Mixmaster Mike, Grandmaster Roc Raida and, of course, the one and only Qbert.
