Good Times.

Meant to post this a little while back with The Roots at The Playboy Jazz Festival joints, but I’ve been real busy with work and helping friends pack. But I definitely wanna get this up for you to see. Along with Black Thought doing a little of “Walk Alone” for us to see, He also was ill enough to freestyle over that new Kid Daytona “On The Hill” that everyone knows I love. Go ahead and check the footage below.

Enjoy.

I need a dollar too.

 

For some reason, Echoplex and KCRW have teamed up to start offering tons of musical wins for either side of the musical spectrum. These are the two that I’m headed out to.

On Friday –
12.03.10: Echo, KCRW & The Do Over Present Aloe Blacc and The Grand Scheme

Aloe Blacc finally brings his genuine soul-stirring, retrotastic music to Los Angeles with the help of KCRW, and brought his band, The Grand Scheme to help him out. Once you combine and mix all that awesome with the fact that this is also a Do-Over sponsored event… I’m kinda geeked. Looking forward to this one… a couple of friends are going and were all set to meet at a venue I love. There’s very little way to lose tomorrow with this set up.

You can check out if tickets are still available here, alone with some of Echo’s other shows.

Next Up?
Henry Rollins – Rare Cuts and Conversation (One-Time Only Event)

Thursday, December 9 at 8pm at Echoplex
**Tickets On Sale Wednesday, November 17**

From the Announcement:

For the first time, Los Angeles public radio station KCRW (89.9FM and KCRW.com) will shine a spotlight on our most well-known DJ Henry Rollins, in a one-of-a-kind live event.

On Thursday, December 9 at 8pm, KCRW will present an exclusive listening party at the Echoplex which will serve as a benefit for the station. Rollins has been searching his musical vaults and will come armed with top selections from his personal music collection – some of which have never been heard before — to share with fans. In a living room-style setting, anecdotes in tow, he’ll share a night of unforgettable tunes and stories.

“I will play stuff that I am unable to on my regular show, due to the rare nature of the material. I have been planning the set for weeks and am so excited to be able to get some truly unique tracks to your ears,” said Rollins. “Basically, the Echoplex will be my living room, you are the guests and I am playing some of my coolest cuts from decades of gathering, complete with the story around the track and its acquisition.”

Now that sounds like fun.

For now, you can watch this, plan out your ticket purchase carefully (since this will probably sell out quick), and have fun.
