Since the early days of the market, bringing DJs to set the mood and keep the beat has been a touchstone of what the A&F shopping experience is all about. Over the years, we’ve had resident DJs who were neighborhood fixtures – Sasha (aka DJ Sport Casual) from the now defunct Grand Street cafe and bar the Lucky Cat, Rodney from Academy Records and Union Pool, DJ Nithya of the famed Kings of Karaoke. And the list goes on and on. Each brought his or her own blend of beats to the ‘Burg.
Our Saturday mainstay is DJ TruTones aka KevinAnthony3000. A native of St. Lucia and a sorta recent transplant from Atlanta, Kevin is a fiend for 1970s and 1980s funk, soul, R&B and Afrobeat. Until recently, he held down a steady gig at Bembe and now is the driving force behind Porch Fridays at the Southside joint, Bia.
Dig the dude and jump-start your Saturday night out with a soundtrack to your shopping every Saturday afternoon from 2-7pm at Artists & Fleas in Williamsburg.
