Emo Rap Fest
I took some pics of Sage Francis years ago when he was a guest at the Anticon monthly showcase, and they keep getting jacked and showing up all over the internet. This one, too.
Since the Time Machine show on the 15th, which was dope (Peep the choreography.), Serg sprained his foot at the Glue show so we haven't gone out much. We saw Sage Francis, Sole and the Sol.ILLaquists of Sound on Wednesday at the Grand (weird venue), on the Knowmore.org tour. Sleep was also there -- an all S line-up. Not to take away from the stellar performances, but a highlight of the show was Sole telling off the drunk girl up front who kept fucking with his laptop table.
Atmosphere rolls into town this week and is at the Fillmore Wednesday and Thursday. Both nights are sold out. I'm looking forward to a good show. In all my years as an Atmosphere fan (it started when my friend Kevin from Kentucky sent me a dubbed tape of Overcast in '98), I've never seen Ant.
We filmed the first episode of "VETV" last Sunday, at the Hunter's Point Shipyards with Eddie K and DJ Marz, at Future Primitive Sound Headquarters with Mark Herlihy and DJ RasCue, then at Groove Merchant with Cool Chris. Shoot day went great, but now the hard work begins: editing. I'll be spending all my spare time on this until January, when VETV.us launches. And then hopefully afterwards as well, as we produce one episode per month. (Graphic/motion designers, hit me up, I need help!) I made up a radio show that isn't really on the radio, and now I'll have a TV show that isn't on TV!
