My friend Ollie went to DJ school last summer and had started playing at parties and bars downtown. I went to see him spin at Bar 13 (University Place and W13th St) before I left NY.  Selina was his roadie-groupie/manager, bopping away, and handing out his business card.

I gathered that DJ-ing in NYC is very competitive, and getting a decent sound system with an audience is not easy.  That night, all the DJs were DJ school graduates from classes of different levels.  They took turns and the changeover was managed by one of the instructor, JP Solis.   Many students did not want to leave the turntable.  Ollie’s slot started at 9:45pm, played for about an hour, and was to spin again after midnight.  Ollie worked intensely, it looked like he was kneading pizza dough, but he was for sure having fun and the music was great.
