Smart bets web extra: Horton’s birthday bash

Local tattoo artist and musician J. Horton (aka Ho-Tron Beatz) is celebrating his birthday (well, the one-year anniversary of his Unification Tattoo Parlor) in style. Instead of settling for an iPod mix and a case of beer, he’s curated a local lineup featuring Asian Teacher Factory, Top-R and Samuel Paradise, and is hosted by Campaign (of local hip-hop duo The Ones). (Hoton will play, too. It’s his party and he’ll DJ if he wants to.)

Listen to Ho-Tron’s new track, “They live,” here:

The party is Saturday, Dec. 1 at One Stop. Show starts at 10 p.m., admission is free until 11 p.m. After that, cover is $5. Image from Photography by Margaret.
