DJ Qbert, the Jimi Hendrix of DJs, to Play Free Show at SFO

SFO's newishly remodeled Terminal 2 is supposed to be an outpost of Bay Area arty/foodie/boho heaven specially for the jet-setter class, right? In addition to its airy design and Hayes Valley-worthy food options, consider this: The city's own DJ Qbert, aka Richard Quitevis, aka the guy who was declared America's best DJ last year, is playing a free show at Terminal 2 this Friday night -- and you don't even have to be flying anywhere to catch it.
Qbert's performance at Terminal 2's SFO Museum is actually a fairly clever spin on the museum's current exhibition, Revolutions per Minute: The Evolution of the Record, which aims to tell the story of the vinyl record in America, our love affair with its cover art, and our enduring fascination with the semi-obsolete formant. And what better punctuation to that history than a live performance from a musician who became successful using vinyl records as the building blocks for an entirely new music?
Qbert plays a special free show at the SFO Museum on Terminal 2's mezzanine level at 7 p.m. this Friday (Dec. 2). Event attendees do not go through security checkpoints and don't need an airline ticket. Terminal 2's vinyl exhibitions run through March 2012.
