Local Lists: Magic Cyclops™

Magic wanted me to write, “My 15 minutes were up a year ago,” but I felt bad

The last time I saw Magic Cyclops™ deejay, it was at the Justice League of Street Food party this year.  He was playing some really great rock and announcing his margarita count into the microphone.  For some reason that kept cracking my sister and I up.

If you haven’t seen Magic Cyclops perform in Denver, you haven’t lived.  It’s nothing like you’ve seen before, and it’s nothing like you’ll ever see again.  And it will make you really happy.

Oh, and if you have never seen the footage from his stint on American Idol, it’s a pisser.
