This Friday, Sean Anonymous hosts his 10th annual birthday show in the Mainroom. Ahead of the big party, we got to pick the brains of Sean, DJ Name, Sims, Greg Grease, Crunchy Kids, Sophia Eris, and Chuck U - get to know ‘em below, and we’ll see you Friday!

DJ Name

1. Favorite place to eat in Minneapolis: probably Muddy Waters. It’s really close to my house, they have great food, and the owners & staff are really cool.

2. Pre-show routine: trying to get about ten minutes to myself, putting on a fresh shirt, and drinking some warm water.

3. One song you couldn't live without: “West Savannah” by Isaiah Rashad ft. SZA

4. How do you know Sean: I’m Sean’s dj and I make some of the beats he raps on. We used to be in a group called Wide Eyes together. We met back in 06 while doing shows at the Dinkytowner and have been working together since 2008.

1. Favorite place to eat in Minneapolis: Upton 43

4. How do you know Sean? The sidewalk in front of the Dinkytowner


DJ Just Nine

1. Favorite place to eat in Minneapolis: Revival

2. Pre-show routine: Eat a snack. Drink green tea. Practice my cuts.
