In April 2009, Portland, Oregon, lured away Ben Fuller, Brent Lippincott's partner in the DJ duo Tactic. But did that stop Lippincott from getting his swag on? Hell naw. In September that year, Lippincott and DJ Sku (Corey Aguilar) launched a monthly DJ night at Czar Bar called Yeeeah Buddy — that's with three e's — after a quick utterance in the Dorrough song "Ice Cream Paint Job." Every First Friday, Yeeeah Buddy features guest hosts, walk-on MCs from the local hip-hop scene (we see you, Lou Rip), a buttload of bass and even more air horn. Sometimes there are themes, too, but the basic idea is always simple: Get crunk. Sku has since relocated to Los Angeles, but Yeeeah Buddy continues unabated. It might outlive us all.
