dj tim : thursday nights
Tim Williams was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin and was thus destined to be a Packer fan. While growing up in Lafayette, Indiana, at an early age Tim was intrigued by the influence of music on people and culture. This journey led him to begin dj-ing fraternity, sorority, and other college parties. This was soon followed by a residency at "Macaws" (The first nightclub owned by the owners of the Neon Cactus). As time progressed, Tim started playing theme nights that included alternative, industrial,techno, and even country. A few years after the opening of the Neon Cactus, Tim moved to St. Joseph, Michigan. While living in Michigan, Tim played clubs in St. Joseph, South Bend, Indiana, and even returned to West Lafayette for special events. A couple years later, Tim moved to the Champaign, Illinois area. Now living closer, Tim commutes every Thursday to the Neon Cactus. He has had the pleasure of playing with many other dj's regionally, and questlove of the Roots, and Dan the Automator
In his spare time, Tim enjoys his pets, glass blowing, hiking, live music and working in his music store Any Frequency in Monticello, Illinois.
