When New Times got with DJ A-Train a few months back, the neo-classicist head spinner was holding court every Tuesday night at the Vagabond's beat-crazy Stone Groove, and every Saturday for the same joint's long-running Back Door Bamby. Well, guess what? He's still holding it down at Bamby, but has traded Stone Groove for the Vagabond's Thursday night Shake. And both parties are giving it up better than ever.
A-Train's also now riding out Wednesdays at Electric Pickle's Champion Sound, and Fridays at The Mondrian for Sunset, which gives us a perfect excuse to slip you one of the mixmaster's radical mixes -- and for you to slip on some kicks and start bustin' a move.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
