Toy Selectah in SF

It's been a long while. Catch up time!

Recent shows:

Jedi Mind Tricks at Slim's

Babygrande labelmates Young God (Blue Sky Black Death) and Vinnie Paz

New album out Tuesday -- A History of Violence. Thanks for the pics, Diane.

Reef the Lost Cauze is on tour with them (as is Outerspace and King Magnetic -- Philly tour is deep!). Look out for him, he is refreshingly dope and a great performer.

I just found this "Vinnie Paz Documentary" on YouTube. I know Jedi Mind Tricks very well and I find this shit hilarious! Vinnie hasn't seen it yet but he said his brother told him it was funny. Only JMT fans will get it. The song at the end kills.

Devin the Dude and Coughee Brothaz at Slim's

Rob Quest!

Mega$oid opened for Glitch Mob at Mezzanine. Look out for my interview with them in the next Versus Mag.

Santogold was SOOOOO good!

Rocktober rocked! Spindig's 3rd Anniversary, Tacober Fest and National Thuggy Fresh Day were the highlights.

Glimmers @ Infatuation 2nite

Dang, I've been so busy I didn't have time to post the September Spindig flyer. It went down last Friday evening and guest DJ Doc Delay played a killer set. He then proceeded to get funky and a little superdiscohyphy at Free Funk Friday later at the Elbo Room.

Dr. Delay at the Elbo Room, dreaming of new Federation mixes

Tonight my DJ buddy Ryan Poulsen is at Infatuation at Vessel, one of the funnest weeklies going in SF right now.

The Glimmers and Headman will be electro-dance-popping it up.

In two weeks, Infatuation hosts the Hollywood Moon tour with Hollywood Holt and Kid Cudi. "Just bought a moped..."

DJ Pretty Titty in SF Weds. July 9

Seattle's Pretty Titty is at Vessel this Wednesday night to play at Infatuation with Commodore 69 and residents Sleazemore, Omar and Rchrd Oh?. He's excited. More about it in SF Weekly.

I have fallen behind of late but for the record, DJ Jazzy Jeff was great at the last Born and Raised party, Mad Skillz was his hype man and birthday boy Morse Code got wasted. Thanks, 330 Ritch.

Darondo is the truth.

Thanks to my husband Serg, I finally caught Darondo live last Friday night at The Independent. PLEASE do not miss him live if you get a chance, and check out his music on the Ubiquity Records site. Darondo is a Bay Area soul singer who had not recorded since the early 70s when his 45 singles were released. Ubiquity has rereleased Darondo's singles as well as material that had never been released before. Darondo's rediscovery after over 30 years is an amazing story, which you can read about here, here and here, or Wiki. Big ups to Justin Torres for finding the man so that we can all continue to enjoy his music and the man can be appreciated and get PAID. Listen to the interviews with Justin Torres on and on Weekend America (scroll down to the bottom of the page).
