Score Saturdays return for round two! We’re excited to announce the second installment of our new quarterly events, brought to you by Purple Foundation and The Eagle. The Eagle is one of the friendliest and most popular clubs in Dallas, where guys of all types come to dance, have fun, and be themselves. Its enormous patio is also a great place to cool off when you need a break from the dance floor. So join us on Saturday, February 22, for Score with DJ James Anthony (NYC). There will be a $5 suggested donation at the door to help benefit local AIDS organizations. The Eagle is also donating a portion of its bar sales that night. Let’s have fun, raise money, and score!
James Anthony’s love for DJ’ing and dance-music culture goes back as far as his memory allows. This dynamic, international DJ and remixer has shown a tremendous affinity for music from an extremely young age, and has spent a better part of his life bringing it to the masses. James got his first big break working in radio, at the legendary dance station WKTU in New York City. Within weeks of being hired, at the young age of 21, he quickly became the youngest mixshow DJ on New York radio. His hugely popular “Freestyle Free For All” and “Free Ride at 5” mixshows, running concurrently since 2003, have been mainstays to millions of radio listeners. In 2012, OUT Magazine named James as “One of the Top 10 DJ’s to Look Out For This Year”
Praised by club-goers, promoters, club managers, and his music industry peers, James has shown a tremendous amount of versatility in the DJ booth and is quickly becoming one of the most sought after DJ’s in both the gay and straight club markets. James maintains a busy calendar of national and international bookings. He has headlined major international parties in Mexico City (Karmabeat, Living), Sao Paulo (Jungle Party), Rio De Janeiro, and Belo Horizonte. He also makes regular US appearances at major gay venues in Provincetown, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Seattle, and San Diego.
Much like his live performances, James’s remixes have been hailed as peak hour staples—producing tracks for some of the circuit scene’s biggest vocalists and producers, such as Deborah Cox, Kathy Brown, Franklin Fuentes, Janet Jackson, Reina, Judy Torres, Amannda, and La India. His SoundCloud page generates thousands of weekly downloads. His popular podcast, featuring his live sets from around the globe, earned him a JustCircuit.com award for “Best DJ Podcast” in 2010 and 2012.
