Need beats? Kick it with DiViNCi tonight at Crowbar
The above video showcases DiViNCi, a DJ with acclaimed Orlando hip-hop act Solillaquists of Sound, performing a mixed and mashed version of Jimi Hendrix's The Star Spangled Banner before a crowd at a 2006 Sage Francis concert in Belgium.
It's a neat trick. He also did it at the 2008 Plug Awards in New York, before a crowd that included Nick Cave, St. Vincent and Patton Oswalt.
And maybe, if you're good, he'll do it again tonight.
A master of live drum machine mixing and improv, DiViNCi is performing at tonight's All Good Tuesdays, running from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. at Crowbar in Ybor City. The cover is free, and there are $5 pitchers all night. Beef Wellington and Soft Rock Renegades also perform. Click here for details.
