16: Meet Luis Mondragon

Originally from Michoacan De Ocampo, Mexico, Luis Mondragon has made Little Rock the place where he lays down his head--and his beats.

1. Name, occupation, years in LR, neighborhood: Luis Mondragon, DJ Producer, 13 years. I currently live in West Little Rock because it is a potpourri of all the things one would expect in the Capitol City:  convenience, comfort, entertainment and it’s two skips away from downtown.

2. Where do you like to go to listen to live music? Little Rock has a very small but close community of entertainment venues. When I'm in the mood for some great music, friendly service and a cold drink, I make a stop at places such as the White Water Tavern, Stickyz, Rev Room or the Joint

 3. Finish this sentence: My job is awesome because... it allows me express my thoughts through music and share the stage with my best friends. 

4. It's Friday night. What are you up to? This Friday night I will join my friends at Twin Peaks for a cold man beer or Señor Tequila for a killer burrito. We will end the night dancing at Club Level with my good friend DJ Sleepy Genius bringing down the house. 

5. Where do you take out-of-town friends when they visit? When friends visit, I take them to Flying Saucer, a UALR Trojan game, Clinton Library, and inevitably, Midtown.
