Perfect closing ceremony for SXSW 2009... Till next year... Update: Ok, go... Last year's Sabbath In The Park was my first. My receipt for coffee and eats on the way there came to 6 dollars and 66 cents($6.66). The coffee jockey was like "dude..." and I assured him that it was a sign that I was on the true path to destruction... and SABBATH IN THE PARK. I gave the receipt to Cosmo for some reason, and it's now that I realize that it's so I can give you his official Sabbath In The Park Wickemix 666!
This year marks the 3rd (Austin) Sabbath In The Park, which by Austin charter, grandfathers it in so that Sabbath In The Park can happen every SXSW for eternity!
"You bad as FUCK!" - 1 O.A.K. of the Honor Roll Word!
MALUCA hit me with a whitsle. I'd never heard of her, but 4 songs later, I'm bout it. Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure hardly anyone knew, but by the end it was as full (as an early for SX show was gonna get) of whistle blowing drunks! Find out!
I can honstly say they blew me the fuck away... 4 piece outfit killing it remixing classics keeping it hella Hip-Hop and actually melted my (grand) cynicism about "Live" H.H. Bands. These cats had a room full of DJs/artists rocking and documenting... you WILL hear about 'em... don't trip!
Davey D, Cosmo baker 1st meeting... shit like this warms my lil' heart and is why I love SXSW. PS... Jonelle Monet's stage presence is GARGANTUAN! She is hella like a new GRACE JONES! (No pics, she was THAT good).
Amoeba Music , easily one of my favorite spots to dig for vinyl, is throwing a warehouse party ala "Warhol 60's" steez... Guess who is gonna paint the walls? A Montana Cans sponsorship lured a dope crew of Graff Writers to paint... unconfirmed invitees are Buder TMF, Keb ICP, Wand TM7, Mike Giant, Meut TDK, Coro, PI= 3.14... Big up to Buder for working his magic, think I'll pass out when is see how many cans of Montana Gold we're working with... check back for sidekick photos and updates on the walls! Oh yeah, the party is free so come thru!
In antcipation I thought I'd share some shit witcha... I was peeping DJ ICEWATER's aka. DJ Pinoy Noir's AWESOME blog The Source Pages and was floored by the GRAFFITI ROCK episode that had me all nostalgic and laughing. Enjoy! Thanks Icewater! "Just check out THIS!"
Seeing corny productions of "hip hop" in its commercial infancy is dope when you think of all it's latter day manifestations... it's a long way from the f'n billion dollar circus that comes to mind nowadays... yowza.
