• Camp Flog Gnaw @ Exposition Park Los Angeles November 12 – 13 2016

    Second annual visit with The Character to work on our music projects and catch Tyler the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw. This year trip to LA marks 3rd annual SO { Standing Ovation} “bro-down”. We recorded 4 new tracks that we’re excited to share with you.

    This year Camp was two days! Among some of the highlights was seeing Chance the Rapper, Rae Sremmurd, Action Bronson, Joey Badass, Toro Y Moi, Anderson Paak, Death Grips, Left Brain, School Boy Q, A$AP Rocky, and of course the man himself Tyler the Creator.  The second night of CFG included a performance by Ear Wolf that was memorable. Tyler encouraged this years camp goes to put their phones down. Meet new people and discover a new band. So, I did just that. One of the newer groups I had no clue about was Gallant. They were very good musicians.

    One of the highlights of this trip was meeting my Shanemundi family.  There’s a radio show what has brought together a great community of kids that all are very unique and artistic. I’ve was lucky to meet some of the kids that I’ve been communicating with in person. Also, meeting the man himself, Shane Powers.

    I wanted to elaborate more, but my procrastination has allowed some of the details to get a little blurry. I’ll always have the memories though.  Remember, find your wings!

  • Death Grips @ 9:30 Club Washington DC July 11

    I enjoyed “The Money Store” album a lot.  It was my soundtrack to my April 2014 trip to NYC. Truthfully, I didn’t really listen to the other projects a whole lot but was still compelled to catch them on their stop in DC.  It was all the press surrounding the group over the past three years.  Their consistent release of music, break up, and then their sly announcement that they were getting back together and going on tour.
