DJ MetroGnome will be celebrating 9-years of playing the hip hop and music that he wants at Coaches, in downtown Indianapolis, tomorrow. Along side host J. Moore, the two have created a staple of sorts for hip hop in Indianapolis, as it’s not only a party to hear the music we love, but it also opens the doors for other DJ’s to come in and play along side him. From all over place too, not just Indiana.
Take That Tuesdays is a place where I have personally met, mingled, and caught up with many people I now call friends, and I know it’s the same for many others. Being said, if you’re in the Indianapolis area tomorrow, this is where you’ll want to be. Come out and celebrate great music!
The legendary DJ Needles, from St. Louis, will be joining him on the decks for the evening.Read More »
