Dia de los Jamz

Hope you can make it out to Church Friday Nov. 1 for a special edition of New Jack City. We'll be spinning all your favorite jamz as part of Church's sprawling Day of the Dead 3-day bender. Along with our set, there will be a surprise musical guest, $5 Santo Muerte burgers, Sangrita backs, artisanal mezcal tastings with Wahaka Mezcal, good friends and precious moments. Plus an elaborate Day of the Dead altar. Bring an item to offer and get happy hour all night! The event runs Thursday Oct. 31 through Saturday Nov. 2, with New Jack City throwing down for the Friday night set.

Gettin' Jacked for Record Store Day

 Our favorite holiday is this Saturday. Yes, we're talking about Record Store Day! And to celebrate the occasion, DJs Human Highlight Film and Cool It Now will be spinning a special New Jack City set at Everyday Music on NE Sandy. We feel very lucky to be living in Portland with so many amazing record stores to help us keep our new jack collection fresh and fully loaded. So get on out there and support them, and while you're at it, let's get some dancing going in the aisles.
