Off the Books: DJ Birdgherl, DJ Chela

When: Sat., June 11, 10 p.m. 2016

Perhaps The Pinhook’s back patio is the best place to take in the enormous “Old Bull” sign that sits atop the American Tobacco Campus Old Bull Building. It’ll be especially meaningful during this edition of the dance party Off the Books, which will unite two eras of Durham DJ culture. The sign didn’t exist in the early aughts, when Durham radio, club, and mixtape DJ Lauren “DJ Chela #1” Harkrader (she has since dropped the “#1” bit) helped activate a wide-eyed Triangle hip-hop scene. She’s lived elsewhere for several years now, and her repertoire has expanded to incorporate global dance vibes. It’s a perfect match for Birdgherl’s style, as the two try to tell a rhythmic Bull City story that’s brighter and louder than even that sign suggests. —Eric Tullis
