This just in - Doctor B Spins Live On Friday!


The Doctor spins live at Downtown Thrift in (where else?) downtown Binghamton, NY on First Friday (April 2nd, 2010). It's right next to the Old World Deli on Court Street, on the same block as Subway and Jungle Science Gallery. I'm planning a set of old-school funk and soul and danceable miscellanea, culled from the Bartlemuzik Ltd. archives. According to Freeze, to whom I am eternally grateful for this opportunity to spin for a live crowd, my set will be from 7 PM to 8 PM.

Come on out and dig the music, the art, the once-monthly scene!
