Until the Lower East Side’s favorite Brooklyn-born, nine-year-old DJ manages to break from the shackles of his 10 p.m. bedtime, fans can only catch Kai Song spinning while the sun is wholly up. Naturally this would make him an institution at Daylife, the neighborhood’s sort-of-semi-annual three-block bash, which has its final hurrah of the season this Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
Song will be performing on one of two stages at Tammany Hall; should he inspire you to force your own small child to become a protégé, Scratch DJ Academy will be offering free lessons all afternoon.
The party’s second stage, down the street outside surf shop The Lost Weekend, will offer performances by Play Room alums Swaai Boys and the synth rockers of The Hits, plus a DJ set by East Village Radio’s Chances with Wolves.
And finally, the free games of “urban croquet and badminton” on offer throughout the day will bring everything to just the right level of ridiculous. Check it all out this Sunday on Orchard Street between Houston and Delancey.
