and read the interview with DJ Shadow

Josh Davis (aka DJ Shadow) has come a long way since his days collaborating with hip-hop icons Gift of Gab and Lyrics Born, and his skills have only gotten more sharply honed as the years have gone by. DJ Shadow's extensive record collection makes for interesting listening when he's creating a live set -- you never know exactly what you'll hear. He didn't disappoint, dropping a technically perfect, hard-driving set that showcased the scope of his taste and talent. But first, Pigeon John warmed up the crowd with his playful, witty hip-hop stylings.
