One Block Radius, Louis Logic & Pigeon John


One Block Radius is the relish Z-Man with singer/producer Marty James and DJ MDA. Z-Man is one of the greatest performers ever, so it's guaranteed to be a fun show.

At 111 Minna. See you there!

Oh yeah, and last night we went dumb at the Slump & Grind 2 release party.

Slump & Grind 2: It's a celebration.

Tonight at the DNA Lounge is Hey DJ, featuring DJ Revolution (he's from Northampton, Mass--whatup Lori!) as well as Ross Hogg and DJ B.Cause celebrating the release of their mix CD, "Slump & Grind 2," the follow-up to the ever-slumping "Slump & Grind." Go to the shop section of Ross Hogg's site,, and add to cart NOW.

The DNA Lounge has a live webcast, so you can watch/listen online and the audio will be archived for two weeks. That's one thing I love about the DNA (I've been going there since the late 80s--I remember when Doc Martin was a barback). It almost makes up for their expensive-ass drinks. But not quite. Big thanks to DJ NeoGeo, who will also be rocking the turntables with his homie Boogie Brown. Check for them at

Also tonight is what I call the 10:00 Free Grime Giveaway at Anu on Sixth Street. Info at

J Dilla R.I.P. / The Beatnuts

One of the greatest producers ever, Jay Dee aka J Dilla, passed away this week, days after the release of his album Donuts on Stones Throw. He worked, performed and produced throughout his illness and up until the end. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten.

I'm off to the Red Devil in a couple of hours to check out the Beatnuts for the first time since they toured with Organized Konfusion and Common Sense (yeah he was still Common Sense and I got my "Resurrection" t-shirt that night). Show is sold out, a little surprising for a Sunday night.

DJ Marz portrait by yours truly

The Gurp City Art Show and Concert was epic! Big thanks to DJ Marz for a huge and successful event. Unfortunately Serg gurped out at midnight (festivities started at 2 pm!) and we missed Eddie K and Baldhead Rick. The new Eddie K material is dope ("OOOOooh!"), do not sleep on it.

Spindig was really fun last Friday night. The Chief Enablers rocked it--and saved my favorite song for last, "Are You Online?" Funny stuff. Don't miss next month's on Friday, March 10. It's my birthday party with special guest DJ Charlotte the Baroness. The homie Matt Sonzala SoReal will be in the house and we'll be heading over to Studio Z right after at 9:00 for this:

Please come out and celebrate my 44th, yes 44th, birthday with me. Then, it's on to Austin for SXSW 2006. Can't stop, won't stop.

DJ Premier in SF 2/2

DJ Premier will be here Thursday night, February 2nd at the Fluid Ultra Lounge. I'll be passing out the Gang Starr buttons I made. And probably wearing my Gang Starr pendant. Morse Code is DJing too so it'll definitely be fun and the music will be top quality.

Thursday is also Trinity's birthday. Happy Birthday!!

The Gurp City Art Show is this Saturday, please come and check out Serg's and my artwork along with that of other Gurp City friends and fam:

My birthday on March 10 is about to be insane. First, special guest DJ at the Spindig happy hour party is Charlotte the Baroness. That's 6 to 9. Then, DJ Rapid Ric is in town from Texas along with my good friend Matt Sonzala So Real, DJing over at Studio Z. San Francisco is so ready. I can't wait. Mark your calendar now, then please come out and party with us.

How old am I gonna be this year?
