Alas, the year is off to an OK start with some concert line ups on the horizon. I remember my yester years and the ghosts of cancelled concerts past. R.I.P. to my Tame Impala tickets, and that rained out Third Eye Blind show at Merriweather. Who could forget the Foo Fighters concerts that are sold out before you can click the link. I cant imagine life without dodging resale tickets, long bathroom lines, overpriced beer and swaying to the soundtracks of my adolescence. Unfortunately, the last few years have taken a toll on my live music experiences. When I did get out, I was double masked and prayerful. This year, my confidence is up and I will be doing the same. First on the list for me is The 3 Chambers Tour with Raekwon, Gza and Ghostface at Baltimore Soundstage! Wu Tang Forever! What’s first on your concert bring back lineup?
Make sure you are staying safe when you’re out and use your intuition at some of these venues. I’ll be posting other live music news as the year continues. Happy Concert Hunting!
The good folks over at Pitchfork are keeping us informed with the ‘need to know’ facts for Coachella! I have zero friends attending this year, so I must envy many strangers on their voyage. Check out the lineup in the link below. Happy Concert Hunting!
Ohhh my dear Lordy! Finally! Supergoup The Guild is giving us life with their debut project Believe It or Live a Lie. I’ve been giving you exclusive cuts from the fellas, and now it’s time for you to get aquainted. This is straight up, real hip hop out of the city of Baltimore. Check it out and let me know your thoughts #DoItNow #DropaJewel4Mayor
A live performance from Ms. La Havas on Roodshow late night. Yeeeessss! Shouts out to NPO Radio 2 for posting this joint. I am completely smitten by this woman and her finger picking. If you haven’t already, (and you should have by now) go ahead and grab her latest project Blood, available everywhere.
Helluva way to get jazzy on a Saturday! A good music junkie friend of mine put me on to Ms. West this morning. She is badazz, and it’s good to see black women getting down and dirty on live instrumentation. She made me want to post some of my acoustic jam sessions I’ve been working on. 🙂 In any event, check out her cover of Music Soulchild’s Just Friends and let me know your thoughts.
