HieroDay Logo2014SPENTRadio returned to Hiero Day for our second consecutive year (It’s the 3rd annual Hiero Day) to get some podcast action in. We were so excited to return after such a successful event and podcast in 2013. We were fortunate enough to have ample recording space over in the media area and the event’s organizers had scheduled several artists/performers time to meet with us and other media outlets.

They perform live up and down California regularly, but no show is more special for Zion-I than their own curated Hella Fresh Fest, formally Paid in Full. The party was at the DNA Lounge this year with 2 rooms and stages of performers. The intimate venue really allowed for fans to meet and mix it up with several of the artists. Continue reading

*VIDEO* RJD2 and Zeds Dead in New York

October 4, 2013

By Bryan Nosanchuk

After Rock the Bells cancelled on me, my hip hop buddy Brian and I had to make the most of a trip out to New York. Closest show we found that caught our interest was a rave event with RJD2 and Zeds Dead. I’m very selective with my electronic music and have a few DJs and producers that I enjoy and would want to see live. RJD2 is one of those DJs who rides the fence well and is able to bridge the gap between so many genres of music including hip hop, dance, jazz, soul and so many others. He’s one of only a few pioneers in the music industry. It was so much fun and a real pleasure to finally see him perform live. He rocked that shit with 4 turntable decks and a live drummer!

Zeds Dead headlined. They were cool and had the crowd dancing and jumping, but in my eyes did not compare to the work and performance that RJD2 put in.

In addition to the concert we had a kick ass trip. I went to a real NY comedy show, Central Park, and had THE Pastrami at Katz’s Deli, ran into a bay area comic buddy out on Long Island and went to Coney Island and had a Nathan’s Famous dog. Most importantly I got to spend some time with my east coast family who I rarely get to see, but love and enjoy every moment with them. I wish we all could see each other more often, and I look forward to seeing some that I missed on my next trip someday.

*VIDEO* Deltron3030 LIVE in San Francisco

For five nights in June, Converse celebrated five genres of music that represent San Francisco and its residents. The free concert series featured Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Juicy J, Hot Chip, Mastodon, Suicidal Tendencies, Blackalicious, Quicksand, and more. Each show took place at Slim’s in San Francisco.

I was lucky enough to find my way inside for the night headlined by Deltron3030. Delton consist of Del the Funky Homesapien, Dan the Automator and Kid Koala; a very rare trio of collaborators if there ever was. I’ve seen Del a few times both solo and with his Hieroglyphics crew, but its a different experience all together when he teams up with his Deltron brothers. Continue reading

As a fan of K.R.I.T. since his first big mixtape in 2010, its always exciting when he comes to town and I get the opportunity to see him live. I first got to see him perform at the Rock the Bells festival in 2011 and he was a big highlight of that festival. Easy decision to go to his show at the DNA Lounge; its a great small venue that I’ve seen a several different kinds of shows at. Continue reading

San Francisco’s modern rock radio station Live 105 puts on their annual BFD Festival every summer. First time I went was back in 2002; Rob Zombie and Papa Roach performances are still remembered fondly. This year’s big acts included Passion Pit, Stone Temple Pilots and DJ Shadow and Diplo out in the Subsonic electronic tent. I briefly connected with my co-host BVanek, but he was with some other friends who wanted to see some of the other bands. My old college friend Donna was also there and I got to hang out and reconnect with her a little bit which was very cool! Continue reading
