Happy Holidays

You know what time it is. The Slackers Holiday Show is upon us once again, with special guests Greg Lee (Hepcat) and Jesse Wagner (Aggrolites). Support comes in the form of The Forthrights and The Frighteners (two of my favorite young local bands this year), and I will be spinning nothing but the heaviest cuts all night. It’s an early show for a Saturday, but the afterparty at The Shop nearby will go deep into the night.

I’m not dead (yet).

Yeah, I’m still alive. I’ve been working on some top secret live musical arrangements, as well as the usual original productions and remixes. I quit my day job a few months ago and have a lot of time to think now. Tonight I’m heading to Vermont for a few weekend gigs with the man called Tito. He says we’re going to jump in lakes and hang out with hippies. Check the sidebar for show information if you want to come see me. That’s all folks.

Incredibowl Extravaganja

I’m in Boulder with The Prime, Ryan-O’Neil, HiCoup & Menny More getting ready for this 4/20 event sponsored by Incredibowl. If you’re in Colorado and you love reggae and rap, come out to The Root tonight. I brought my echo box.

The Great Rocksteady Swindle

Been a while, what’s up world? I tend to hibernate a bit in winter. I’m just popping my head out to show you this promo mix I put together for The Slackers’ forthcoming album, The Great Rocksteady Swindle. Peep Kerosene toasting over some heavy riddims from one of NYC’s most soulful groups:

I’ve got some more local gigs coming up, and will post about that soon. Til then, be easy…
