Very few things make a sports fan happier than defeating an arch rival on the field, court, diamond, or pitch (for my soccer and cricket fans). However, sometimes rivalries transcend the realm of sports and creep into our everyday life, and Thursday November 8, 2012 is one of those times.
Arch rivals (and TAM teams) Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and the University of Memphis will face off against each other, but it will not be a football or basketball game this time. It will be a DJ battle to determine who is Red Bull DJ Master.
So what Mississippi State has beat Ole Miss in football the past four years and demolished Memphis last football season 59-14. It does not matter if Tigers basketball is head and shoulders above their two rivals fromMississippi, or that Ole Miss is a top 15 party school according to the Princeton Review. All that matters tonight is what happens when the DJ’s from these schools compete for the title of Red Bull DJ Master.
One of the great things about the contest is that each DJ must include aMemphisbased artist in their 15 minute set.
Come out and support your favorite college tonight and show that your school dominates your rivals not just in sports but in clubs as well.
WHO: Battling DJs: DJ Ben Murray, DJ PHNX, DJ T.Marsh, GLOtron, Ice Cream Social, & DJ TUGaWAR.
Headliners: DJ Crumbz & DJ Charlie White
WHAT: Red Bull DJ Master is a competition that gives campus DJ’s from the University of Memphis, Rhodes,Ole Miss & Mississippi State the chance to show off their talent and display their music versatility.
