James Murphy Is DJing for Free at the Hudson Hotel Tonight


DFA Records have been curating Wednesday nights at the incongruously uptown Hudson Hotel since the end of August, but label boss James Murphy has been away, playing big deal European festivals with LCD Soundsystem. They go on tour again (with Sleigh Bells!) starting next week, but in the meantime, Murphy’s taking his turn on the decks at the Hudson tonight — for free.
