Description

Episode 100 is FINALLY here and it's a music episode. It's been a minute since we've done one of these, so why not do a milestone episode speaking on the greatest of equalizers, right? Our guest this week is DJ RQ Away. The New Orleans based selector is 13 years in the game and is best known for his weekly party, The Tipping Point, every Friday at Dragon's Den and Lagniappe at Tipitina's. He's also founder of Away Team - a network of open-minded, art conscious individuals connected by music, art, service, and membership. As an added bonus for y'all, we have our good man, photographer extraordinaire Dr. Devonte R. Williford, in the building dropping necessary life doctrine for you to navigate this funny thing.
