We here at Crossfade just received that non-sensical message from The Overthrow's Sam Baum via text, email, and phone.
Our reply: "WTF ... Our favorite's the Triassic era. So what?"
His response: An official Overthrow newsletter containing hype about a secret show and afterparty with Mad Decent's "Original Don" at Grand Central's The Garret.
Plus ... A mini-flyer bearing the image of some kinda terrible lizard. But which genus exactly? See the cut for clues and a multiple-choice test.
Question: Which dino corresponds with the specimen featured on The Overthrow's afterparty at The Garret mini-flyer? And which Mad Decent crew member is a total reptilia fetishist who named himself after a giant prehistoric monster?
A. Tyrannosaurus Rex
