You can call me Mikey D, Big Mike Deuces, or whatever..... I host "The Throwdown*."
throwdown (plural throwdowns)
(slang) A fight or brawl; or, a challenge or incitement to fight; "take a stand". (slang, Hip-hop) A performance by a rapper or DJ, intended to be particularly hardcore or intense. a Hip-hop throwdown (slang, hardcore punk music) A type of hardcore dance in which a person violently clears a space for himself and appears to be ready to fight those around him, while making violent and erratic movements with his body. ___
Every national act out there today or in the past, started some place..... my point being, they were once THAT local band.
That is exactly what my motivation is, to take a "stand" or "clear a space" for the "little guy," I make it a point each and every show to feature LOCAL/UNDERGROUND artists and Small labels.
