Seattle has given us plenty of musical icons: Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana and Pearl Jam...even Sir Mix-A-Lot. There's also a dance music legend from the region, one Donald Glaude. The DJ from nearby Tacoma started rocking the decks 20 years ago -- long before there was a real dance scene in the Pacific Northwest. Since then, the energetic, funky house DJ has built a massive fan base -- including a few of his own fellow DJs -- around the globe. Dave Aude dubbed him the "James Brown of DJs," and DJ Dan called him "one of the most entertaining DJs to watch live."

Today at 702, Glaude, who currently resides in Las Vegas, will close out Houston Press's City of Spin party. (Hmm, 702 is the area code of Sin City. Coincidence?) H-town spin doctors Sean Carnahan, Little Martin, Alex C, DJ Red and Amanda Robinson -- all of whom are vying for your vote -- kick off the gig at 9 p.m.
Sun., June 25, 9 p.m.
