FLEX FILM: This Thing We Do: Houston DJ Culture Revealed

Please join us on the back patio for another film in our curated FLEXFILM series. We are excited to be showing Flash Gordon Parks aka Jason Woods documentary based on Houston's diverse and impactful DJ culture entitled “This Thing We Do: Houston DJ Culture Revealed” 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 performed with Autumn knight at She Works Flexible on April 18 2015,  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 Damien Randle of Ill Mannered Media, “masterfully connects the dots between different genres, different eras and different sections of the city of Houston.“
