I took a little break last month. Now that I’m back at this thing again it’s time to get all my showcase footage up. Finally the last person on the Spike Hill “It’s A Rap” showcase was Voli. As anticipated he did his thing. Listen carefully to everything. The vocals, the band in the background, etc. This is some deep stuff. I enjoyed it! Let me know what you think!
We invited Triple Double out to perform at our “It’s a Rap” showcase at Spike Hill last month(11/14/2012). You already know what the deal is. If you don’t you’re about to find out. The lovely young lady serenading us is Ms. Anne and of course Icerocks on the ones and two’s. Enjoy!

Up 3rd on blaqbook’s “It’s A Rap” showcase at Spike Hill was the Son of a Beach himself Dewey Decibel. Dewey made the trip from Philly with his homey Fabian Akilles to bless us with some fire. I loved this dudes energy. From our first introduction, to his set, to his departure he kind of gave off a happy have fun sort of vibe. Whenever an artist brings happiness to the table the crowd has no choice but smile and get into it. I have a few more clips from Dewey that will come up later this week with him and Fabian getting busy. For now, kick back and relax and get “High on Art”. Enjoy!
Nicoroc was the second performer on blaqbook’s “It’s A Rap” hip hop showcase. By the time Nicoroc’s set started Spike Hill was packed. Most of the people came specifically for him. People were in the crowd rapping word for word. Great set! Hopefully I’ll get to work with this guy in the future he kills it on stage. Any time the crowd goes crazy after every song you know you really did a stand up job. Enjoy!
Don’t act like you haven’t missed me! Good to be back. Lets get on with it. I booked Astrosteezpcp AKA AstroSteez Pretty Cool Peasants for the first blaqbook hip hop showcase “It’s A Rap” November 14th. They made their way from Philadelphia straight from class to perform for us. I’m glad they did. These guys are definitely a group to keep your eyes on in the near future. Enjoy!
PS: They also dropped this track yesterday. Check it out.
The dudes from Lazer Cake invited me over to Cameo Gallery to catch their set. Every band on the bill was pretty good for the most part. Any time music makes you roll your shoulders repeatedly and/or bob your head to the side in “Night of the Roxbury” fashion over and over you know it’s good. Come on, when this shit starts if you don’t bob your head you need some swag injections immediately. These guys are tons of fun! Enjoy!
The dudes from Lazer Cake invited me out to their show on 10/25/2012 at Cameo Gallery. They were the last band to play so I got to catch two bands before them. One of which was this band Junior Prom who absolutely killed it. The last time I saw a two piece this dope was back when The Courtesy Tier was just Omer and Layton. Enough words, time for some music! Watch these dudes do the damn thing. The singer kept yelling out “Wooaaaah!” on some Rick Flair shit. From that little piece of information alone you should be super excited. Great set! You dudes have some serious stage presence. 2 dudes felt/sounded like 5. That drummer is banana’s and I’m sure I saw a could of women tear up from the vocals. Enjoy!
PS: You should call one of your songs “The Nature Boy”…just saying “woaaaaaah”.
“Oh hey yall!” It’s been a little while. Since before Hurricane Sandy panties I believe. Lets get right to it. I caught up with the dudes from Double King over at Cameo Gallery on 10/23/2012. The former bassist/singer of The Powder Kegs is now the Guitarist/front man in Double King. Brooklyn is a waterfall of talent with fresh fish hopping into the mix daily. Bands like this set the margin high! If you’re in a mediocre band don’t even waste your time bringing that shit to Brooklyn. You better come with it if you want to stand a chance. I look forward to Double King’s future. Double King isn’t trying to be denied, they let it all out on stage. I loved their set, and don’t even get me started on how rad the last song was. Holy Shit! Enjoy! Let me know what you think.
