This Thing We Do: A documentary on Houston’s DJ Culture

Directed by Flash Gordon Parks

Saturday April 18, 7pm

Rice Media Center. Rice University campus, inside of entrance 8, on University Blvd. at Stockton Dr.
Produced by Jason Woods aka DJ Flash Gordon Parks and funded in part by a grant from Houston Arts Alliance This Thing We Do is a visual tour of a major component of Houston cultural influence, the DJ. In it, Parks gets insight from a DJ who’s who list of Bayou City pioneers including Daryl Scott of Blast Records, Gracie Chavez, DJ Sun of Soular Grooves, and Chuck Roast of Vinyl Edge Records and the legendary punk rock show, Funhouse to name a few.

Flash Gordon Parks who describes himself as an “ethnomusicologist, collector, and documentarian from the city of Houston” feels the “deejay is a conduit of information supplying his or her audience with history, awareness and entertainment” and that “Gospel, Jazz, Blues, Soul, Funk, Rock and Hip-Hop are the cornerstones of Houston’s diverse cultural makeup.” The film, shot and edited by Damian Randle of Ill Mannered Media, “masterfully connects the dots between different genres, different eras and different sections of the city of Houston.“

This Thing We Do will make its Houston debut April 18th, 7pm at Rice Media Center. Rice University campus, inside of entrance 8, on University Blvd. at Stockton Dr. The film will be followed by a Q&A talk with Parks and a panel discussion consisting of some of the DJs present in the film.
