Mainstream Escape 

When: Thu., May 29, 9 p.m. 2008
Price: $10

Now that milk crates and vinyl records have given way to Serato Scratch Software, it takes more than hard work and some nice Technique 1200s for a hip-hop DJ to have staying power. The best ones have a real multi-genre sensibility, and an ability to make AC/DC co-exist -- more or less peacefully -- with Fifty Cent and Lil' Wayne. Enter All-Purpose DJs, so-named because they have a thematically water-tight set-list for any party you can come up with -- whether you're celebrating 4-20 (Cypress Hill, RBL Posse, Rick James) or a Players' Ball (David Banner or the Zombies' "Time of the Season"). This Thursday (May 29) the EastBay crew will hold its reunion at Julie's Supper Club (1123 Folsom St. in San Francisco). Dubbed "Mainstream Escape," the event also features Zion-I crew emcees Deuce Eclipse and D.U.S.T. 9 p.m. $10
