Fri, Dec 31, DJ Larry Rodriguez
Fox & Goose, 8 p.m., $5
Sacramento, CA 95814
Larry Rodriguez has a special place in my heart. A week after my father passed away (two years ago, mind you), I went to Old Ironsides to clear my head and be around some close friends. Rodriguez was spinning that night and floored me with the incredible depth of his repertoire. Unlike other deejays who don’t frequent record shops and rarely spin the oddball tune, Rodriguez is one of the few I recommend to this day. Looking for some vintage soul? Brazilian fare? Joe Bataan, anyone? If so, he’ll be hosting a New Year’s Eve soiree at the Fox & Goose. For $5, you can’t do much better. 1001 R Street.
