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

Soulati (@teeshep) and Infinite (@emceeinfinite)

We were joined by both Infinite and Soulati in this episode. Both are long time collaborators and members of Felonious, bay area’s live hip-hop music and theater collective. Infinite has called into our show in the past, but this was our first opportunity to connect face to face with him and close friend and band mate Soulati. Both perform as emcees within Felonious in addition to being the two beat boxers within the group. While Felonious, as a group, has stopped performing live as often as they once did, Infinite and Soulati continue to create their own music and art; often working with each other still.  Continue reading

*VIDEO* Skywalkers and Pep Love LIVE at Brick and Mortar in San Francisco

Though I’ve only ever seen the Living Legends live only once, I’m a fan of several of the artists solo and side projects. I know the quality of hop hop that come from these artists including Sunspot Jonz. Its an easy sell for me when they’ve also got Hieroglyphics member, Pep Love on the bill. Sunspot teamed up with producer BOAC for this newest Skywalkers project.

It was also my first time to Brick and Mortar Music Hall. I’d heard of some of their recent problems with the city and wanted to see what all the fuss with the venue was all about. Pretty cool little place. I’d return to see another great show.

As a long time Felonious fan I was not going to miss out on Infinite’s first show as a solo artist. I’ve seen Infinite live in a few different capacities over the years including freestyle rap battles, beat boxing performances and with his band, Felonious. He called out to several of his musical contemporaries for their added performance support and it made for an incredibly memorable night.

All footage was shot on my iPhone 4s.

Forrest Day is a kick ass funky rock band that puts on great energetic shows all over California. I’ve seen them many times and even posted a video of their show a few months ago. I was excited when I first saw they were playing at Mezzanine with Rebirth Brass Band. Continue reading

*VIDEO* Passion Pit, Diplo, DJ Shadow, STP, C2C and More at BFD 2013

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
