To remember the late and talented DJ Jimmy Hands, Latyrx will be playing a memorial show mid-month at Hodi’s Half Note.  DJ Jimmy Hands suffered from one of the worst cases of Psoriasis as a young boy which eventually led to the development of Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Despite his life-threatening disease, the talented hip hop DJ touched the hearts of many throughout Ft.
