Z-Trip @ Axis/Radius

Whenever hometown hero Zach Sciacca, known to the masses as Z-Trip, makes like the prodigal son and return to the place where he both cut his teeth and dropped his first killer cuts, it ain't just an ordinary gig. It's a major event that thousands attend and noteworthy cohorts support. That's how it was the past two times Z-Trip came home, as he put on epic sets at successive Sound Wave Music Festivals, blasting out mash-ups while being accompanied by such showstoppers as Valley b-boy troupe Foot Klan (in 2011) and Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli (in 2012). The 40-year-old turntablism titan's appearance at Axis/Radius, 7340 East Indian Plaza in Scottsdale, on Saturday, February 2, promises much of the same, as he'll be backed up by a couple of local DJ heavyweights who were associates of Z-Trip back in his Tempe heyday: Tommy "Tricky T" Laurie, a onetime padawan of Sciacca who picked up a variety of turntable tricks from the master, and esteemed Pickster One. The record deck reunion starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $15, VIP access is $35. Call 480-970-1112 or see www.sletickets.com.
