As Jewish as They Wanna Be
Its no surprise that Mansion booked Samantha Ronson for its weekly We Rock Hip Hop party. Because its all in the family when she takes over the decks at this Opium Group locale. Not only is Ronson a sibling to Mark (famous musician and producer) and Charlotte (famous designer), but also she counts Roman Jones, co-owner of the Opium empire, as a stepbrother. You might know Jones because a bust of his likeness adorns Louis at the Gansevoort, and he had his mug silkscreened onto panties and toilet paper handed out at Opium venues. Or perhaps you recognize him from his courtside appearances at Heat games, made infamous by his questionably fashionable Uggs.
But maybe Jones will sit the night out, letting the spotlight shine on Ronson and DJ Affect, who get top billing Friday night as 2 Live Jews. Will they make Uncle Luke proud? Lets hope. Or perhaps this could be an homage to the 90s comedy hip-hop duo of the same name that crafted songs like Oy! Its So Humid and Shake Your Tuchas. Tickets cost $15, and tables start at $850 just make sure the vodka is kosher.
