Today, Thursday, June 21st, pioneering Bay Area turntablist Eddie Def (pictured belpw), along with his fellow Bullet Proof Scratch Hamsters (later Space Travelers) founding member DJ Cue (pictured left), are both flying into New York City where, over the next few days, they will be performing at a series of DJ events, including this Saturday's big DMC DJ Battle for US Supremacy & NYC Regional DMC DJ battle at at Le Poisson Rouge where they will be the star showcase performers along with host/mc Lord Finesse. More DMC info here.

Upon their arrival today, the two veteran San Francisco turntablists/DJs will be heading directly to East Harlem where they'll be doing a special turntable performance at the prestigious and always fun Tools of War-produced annual summer True School Park Jams. This afternoon's Spanish Harlem Hop Park Jam (which is free like all the Park Jams) is in Spanish Harlem at White Park El Barrio located at Lexington and E. 105th Streets (NY, NY 10029) and is near the #6 Subway line (map it here). It runs from 3pm to 7pm with other scheduled DJ performances today by both Tony Touch and Lean Rock.  Then tomorrow (Friday June 22nd) at 7pm (EST) the two DJs, along with DJ ALF and other guest turntablists, will be performing live (a freestyle set) on WFMU on my weekly radio show Put The Needle On The Record.
