This was one hell of a party. Peanut Butter Wolf came through and dropped a two-hour DJ set at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston as part of the Beats of Basquiat series. My best guess is that probably about 1000 people showed up. For those of you who are familiar with the MFAH, they cleared the main lobby area of the Caroline Wiess Law building just past the admission booths and stairs for a dance area/bar area. The DJ booth overlooked the dance floor, sharing the second floor with the works of Basquiat. Patrick of Microcinema was also up in the booth, projecting visuals on the far wall.
PB Wolf killed it; he rocked a great set of funk, soul, and latin music for most of the evening, throwing in the odd early 80's rock and dance tracks, and he finished with a straight up hip-hop set for the last 30 minutes. Not too much in the way of flash, although he did throw in some juggles and scratches at the end. I didn't expect him to bust out the turntablism anyway - it's tough to rock a party vibe when you're juggling beats.
Also present in support were Cee Plus (I missed his set) and The Digging Deep Quartet (Prince Klassen and JJ Lopez; I'm not sure if there are actually two other people who weren't present). DDQ also rocked a very tight party set.
I believe there are two more parties left in this series; one in January (featuring Shepherd Fairey) and one in February (featuring Grandmaster Flash). I highly recommend going - it's a pretty good chance to take a look at some great artwork, and party down at the same time.
