Turning 34 years old isnt exactly a red-letter date in life. Its just another step away from the blissful ebullience of your twenties and two years removed from getting booted out of the coveted 18-to-35 demographic.
Although most folks would probably avoid celebrating said occasion, local turntablist Tricky T has booked a massive birthday blowout for himself and a dozen of his DJ cohorts called Spank Factory. T might not be getting any whacks on his hiney during the party, but he will be collaborating on a super-size sound collage with his friends. The Bay Areas DJ Goldenchyld and his hip-hop/electronic group, The Bangerz, are stopping by, as is a virtual whos who of Phoenixs club scene. Emile and Radar, members of the Valleys Bombshelter DJs, are on the guest list along with Bigie, Crusher Soundsystem, J. Paul, and others. (The event is also a kickoff for Tricky and the Bombshelter crews Wednesday night weekly CTRL-ALT-DEL.)
