Red Bull Thre3Style is an innovative concept that gives highly skilled DJs a global platform to showcase their skills, battle and gain notoriety by rockin’ the dance floor. Unlike other DJ battles that are based on solely technical aspects, Red Bull Thre3style has a creative and original format that seeks to find the DJ that has best perfected the true art of “party rockin’.”
Eight of the West Coast’s top DJs will vie for the audience and judges’ favor, each with a 15-minute set that MUST contain at least three different musical genres. A panel of music industry judges will select the winners based on track selection, creativity, mixing skills, stage presence, and crowd reaction; and ultimately decide who is the best on the decks in San Francisco. Competing DJs include Bay Area locals KingMost, Zita, Theory, Just, Miles Medina, and John Beaver. Also competing are Four Color Zack (won Seattle pre-qualifier) and Playtime (won Portland pre-qualifier).
The event will be hosted by Franco Finn (Golden State Warriors MC). Guest judges will include Aaron Axelsen (Live 105 Music Director and Founder of PopScene), Big Once (2011 Red Bull Thre3Style National Champion), and Bag Raiders (Australian Recording Artists & Production Duo on Modular Recordings) will judge and headline the event with a special closing set.

MDNA is scheduled to be released globally on March 26th, but you can be sure to have yours reserved for you now!
MDNA is Madonna's 12th studio album and the first since 2008's Hard Candy. Always keeping with the times, Madonna's new album features collaborations with Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., and electro pop jokers LMFAO.
Fresh from her successful performance at Amoeba Hollywood Tuesday night, Lana Del Rey arrived to the San Francisco store at 2:30pm and took the time to greet deliriously happy fans out on Haight Street (even greeting a friend of a fan's through his cell phone) before heading up to the Amoeba green room to get ready for her 6:00pm show. To say the show was well attended would be an understatement as the store's capacity was reached sometime around 5:30pm. With the store packed full of admirers and a line of hopefuls down Haight Street (and around the block), it would be safe to say that over 1,500 fans turned out to see the new voice of their generation.
Overhyped media controversy aside, Lana Del Rey was a vision of perfection to her supporters Thursday, who were focused on her sultry voice and angelic presence. If Madonna held the most expensive and entertaining satanic ritual ever created in the history of the world at the Superbowl, then Lana Del Rey held the biggest Love-in in the Haight since 1967. As she descended upon the Amoeba stage at 6:00pm, the crowd exploded at a deafening level of glee that one would only expect to follow the words, "Ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles." Her gracious response to the overwhelming crowd was: "I only sing for you."
