Wednesdays are busy days for Zin, the local underground rapper and KPFT DJ. From three to five in the afternoon, he and The Kase co-host the KPFT hip-hop / soul / Afro-beat show S.O.S. Radio. (Motto: “Everything from Mos Def to Fela Kuti”)
After that wraps, Zin heads over to the Midtown Lounge on Chenevert at Gray, where he hosts the weekly Midweek party from five until two in the morning. This Wednesday they have some very special guests. From five to eight, Houston’s own Go DJs will be spinning, and Wyclef Jean is scheduled to drop in.
After that, Zin, DJ Gwoody, and DJ Kool Emdee will take over the decks, cranking out old-school hip-hop classics, soul, and reggae, interspersed with live performances.
It’s Wednesday. What better than that have you got going on? – John Nova Lomax
