Mash Ave

If the word was in the dictionary, Webster would define “Mashups” as 2 or more songs combined to make 1 funkilicious new song. The Boston Globe recently said, “At first it sounds like a radio broadcast caught between two stations.” The music genre was popularized by DJ Dangermouse’s Grey Album, a mashup of Jay-Z’s Black and the Beatles’ White albums and immediately caused the record industry to send out several cease-and-desist letters.

Fortunately for you, you can experience this growing art form (lawyer free) right here in Boston (well close, Union Square). Mash Ave at the Independent features 4 DJs spinning “only the finest mashups and bootlegs from across the globe.” A casual attitude and smooth beats are common on Friday nights and for some seriously specialrific mashes, don’t miss the return of Lenlow on July 15th.

    Hi! Thanks for the plug. A couple of corrections:

    – The 4 DJs is one night only. Usually it is two. July 15 will be a good night with 2 DJs guesting from Paris France.

    -I’m the dude who is there every Friday- Dj BC. And I’m not too terrible myself.
