As Pete teased last week, Erykah Badu made her DJ debut on Friday night at the PM Lounge in downtown Dallas' Joule hotel. Too bad the Toys for Tots benefit wasn't on Saturday, though, as there might have been a fresh batch of rampaging Santas for Badu to entertain in addition to her high turnout.
No matter: DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown (Badu's pseudonym for spinning) brought an excited crowd to the Joule on Friday. For more photographic evidence, see some other images from photographer Drew Williams' set after the jump. Just don't expect any raging Santas.
