As they have done previously with legends like Tom Waits and Smashing Pumpkins, Exile on Main Street has been host to days that celebrate the existence of a band or musician by either playing their music or performing it. This time around, its the celebration of something a bit more disheartening, but uplifting at the same time.
This Saturday, May 12, Exile will be hosting MCA Day: King of the Ave. to honor and celebrate the late and very great Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who died last week from cancer. To celebrate the life and work of Yauch, DJ Legtwo and DJ Belly will be spinning cuts from the Beasties’ entire catalog.
The event takes place from 1-7 p.m. at Exile.
