Allow us to introduce one of The Space Cowboys' founding members, The Whoreable DJ 8Ball (aka 'H8Ball', 'RaveBall'). His accomplishments are too numerous to list here, aside from which, we don't want to reveal anything that could be later used in court. Suffice to say that 8Ball started spinning in the mid-90s, playing jungle (B'OH!) and, later, breaks at the sort of all night dance parties where ravers in kick pants blew whistles, swirled glowsticks, and eventually collapsed into clenched-jawed human puddles until dawn. These days 8Ball plays all sorts of genres, from breaks to disco, from old school hip hop to new school funk, rock to electro, and all sorts of stuff in-between.
He's played many venues around SF, including the old standbys like Mighty, Shine, 1015, Temple, Wish, DNA Lounge, and The End-up. He was 1/2 responsible for a debaucherous monthly called Bikini Wax at the venue formerly known as Sublouge. He's played in stores while you've shopped, in restaurants while you dined, and at wineries while you've sipped chardonay. He's played in homes, on rooftops and radios, in far-away castles and warehouses, under freeways and underground.
8Ball is also the official voice of Space Cowboys, and responsible for such rants as "Hipster Fixie Vamps", "How to Survive New Year's", "Seemed Like a Good Idea At the Time", and others.
