Jay-Z's Official DJ Hits Tonight's Groove Candy

NYC's DJ Neil Armstrong is one lucky mofo. Not only does the dood get to spin the backbeats for Jay-Z as the hip-hop superstar's official turntablist, he also got to hang with Obama during the inauguration and has been lauded in the pages of Rolling Stone, URB, and the recently-deceased Vibe Magazine. (Plus, he also shares the moniker of the first man on the moon to boot.)

Although Mr. Beyoncé Knowles won't be hitting the stage at Dodge Theatre until tomorrow night, his DJ has already made it to the PHX and will be a special guest of tonight's Groove Candy session at Doc's Place Music and Supper Club (40 East Camelback Road, 602-277-5999). M2 and Amen Ra will also be on the ones and twos, and (as always) Power 98.3 personality Karlie Hustle will be hosting.

Ladies get in free before 11 p.m. and there will also be drink specials all night. Check out GC's Twitter or MySpace for more.
