• Vince Staples w/ Kilo Kish @ 930 Club Washington DC March 31 2017

    This was probably one of the better live shows I’ve seen in a while. Kilo Kish opening was fantastic. Her set displayed her love for performance art. Her set was very theatrical, contained great music, and a very entertaining. Also, just when you think you’re doing something you see someone doing ten times better. Kilo Kish’s one man band was very impressive. I’m not sure if many others in the building noticed him constructing the tracks from the ground up on the spot and on time. Then alternating between riffs on the guitar, piano, and inserting effects live. It was impressive to see this guy work.

    The room filled in and it was time for Vince Staples to take the stage. Perched up on the second floor of the club I had a great view of the stage. Vince commanded it for an hour, all by himself. As far as I could tell, he didn’t have a dj or hypeman. He put on an amazing performance. All by himself. Definitely a highlight for 2017 concert going.

  • Weird N Aweful @ Urban Event Space Los Angeles CA November 11 2016

    This was an extra added bonus from my trip to LA. I randomly meet Rakeem Miles on Facebook.  He’s a great MC from Baltimore Maryland.  He also managed to throw a great event in Los Angeles the night before Camp Flog Gnaw 2016. His event company Weird N Aweful secured a patio in the back of an art store for the performances. I didn’t really quite know what to expect, except that I had a feeling I’d be one of the oldest people in the building. I love music and I love staying on top of the “underground”. So, I had to go and check these kids out.  This is event included performances by Rakeem Miles, Herrick and Hooley, and more.  Also, pop up shops from up and coming street wear designers like my #Shane100 brethren Infinite Expression, Soggy Waffels, and even an appearnce by Odd Future’s own Mike G. It was definitely a lot of fun. I’m hoping to catch a Weird N Aweful event again soon. Be sure to check out Rakeem has he rises to the top!
