Unreleased Mix #2: Live at Alcatraz Prison, SF (6-21-2008)

On June 21st, 2008, DJ AM played a gig at a very unusual location: Alcatraz prison in San Francisco. The prison has been closed since 1963 but it's still very much alive as a tourist attraction & special events location. The event that Adam dj'ed there was an exclusive event for 7x7 magazine and the Bachelors of SF Movember Benefit. Guests of the event enjoyed a private tour of the rock while raising funds and awareness for the Movember Foundation, an organization devoted to men’s health issues.

We have some excellent, high quality photos of DJ AM in action at the Alcatraz event courtesy of Daniel Kokin.


We also have the 70 minute, 53 song live recording of the event direct from AM's personal archives! The mix is a side of classic rock and a whole serving of AM's classic party rocking routines. Check out the mix & tracklisting below along with AM's Facebook post after the party had concluded:
