DJ Tom Thump(Det/San Fran) @"The Payback" - Saturday, Jan. 21st
Hello and welcome to 2012, Super Happy Fam!
I'm super stoked to announce that my man, DJ Tom Thump, will be joining us at Bayside Lounge for "The Payback" this saturday. This guy is one of San Fran's finest! On top of being a DJ and promoter with years of experience, Tom is a heavy record collector with an unparalleled plethora of music knowledge. Peep the vids below. One is a dope interview with his headphone sponsor, Sol Republic , and the other is a vid from his "Loose Joints" night at The Make Out Room in the Mission District of San Fran. Super dope night that I've had the pleasure to play. Definitely the spot to be on a Friday night in San Fran!

His knowledge of the world of music is both deep and wide, his skills allowing the musical language speak clearly and powerfully, no matter the genre. Electronica, funk, world, soul and everything in-between.
He was credited in URB Magazine as one of the "Next" 100 and has appeared in several other magazines, news dailies and blogs.
