LOVE this collaboration of LACMA and Murs, which LACMA calls “An extension of conversations around intersections of ctmpy art and film, art and music and art and performance.” Went to the launch of the series back in May with 3MG (Murs, Eligh, Scarub) and it was a really dope event with Urban Lights as the backdrop.
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib (DJ Set) Peep their Thuggin’ EP.
Wonder-FULL is back! Don’t wait in line (made that mistake last year) and cop your tickets now while they’re still $9 ($12 total inc. fees). Tickets will sell out, the line will be long, and your feet will not stop grooving! So excited for this and DJ Spinna is one of my top 5 DJs for sure. Wonder-Full, an annual event dedicated to the great Stevie Wonder. Featuring Brooklyn NY native DJ Spinna, one of the world’s most respected DJ/Taste maker/Producer, spinning all Stevie exclusives, covers, samples & remixes.
such a dope lineup. visionaries, people under the stairs, zion i, evidence, fashawn, blu, chali 2na, planet asia, strong arm steady, ugly duckling, and rebel to the grain. it’s too bad i only saw the last couple of headliners because i came late. it was hot as a mutha… i can’t see why the observatory couldn’t turn on their A/C. it sucks because towards the end during visionaries you can tell the crowd was runnin on fumes. despite the conditions, i’m still grateful to finally see the visionaries live and to see all these dope crews grace the same stage.
Headed to LACMA for Murs, Eligh, and Grouch. The performance kicked off the Through the Mic concert series, which spotlights LA-based hip hop artists. Got a free temporary membership for the summer and finally got to check out Metropolis II during their after hours viewing.
Lee Fields and the Expressions! I never thought I would ever see him live and he did not disappoint. Cody Chesnutt was amazing live too, but I only caught the latter part of his set because of the Laker game.
Doin the do with my boos! Love the renovations at Lure (formerly Cabana Club) although I did miss the shade of the white tent cuz it was hot as a mutha.
thanks to the good folks at fusicology i got to see this awesome live music event. four music scenes battling it out for the throne. dim mak, stones throw, dublab, and smog all did their thing and stones throw came out on top.
