Blunt Club Tour Kickoff

The Blunt Club is going on tour, and the DJs behind the popular, long-running Valley hip-hop night are having a party to celebrate. DJs Pickster and Element (pictured) are hitting the road to explore California (one tour stop even features Warren G), but everyone knows you can't leave town without a bash. This Thursday's edition of Blunt Club, hosted by Thriftshop, will feature live art by Dump La Rock, and tunes from Pickster and Element, spinning hip-hop, moombahton, and various forms of funky electronic music. "I'll be dropping all West Coast heaters," says Element on the Blunt Club event page. The records start spinning at 9 p.m., at the Yucca Tap Room, 29 West Southern Avenue in Tempe. No cover.
