Wow this guys is jjjammin (video via N_M_R
). Count on MIT to bust out some conductive thread midi boat synthesis mobile beat making possibilities with the Music Jacket
. Happened to catch a great opening for the MIT visual arts progam
Saturday night. Then caught Flavorheard
at the enormous room (where were you?
). The night before it was Rebirth Brass Band who play louder then I think any other brass band ever. They even played Big Chief which is of course a Mofo favorite. Check the video
. Note: all of these experiences would have been greatly improved had I been wearing the musical jacket.
But before all the fun weekend stuff happened, a radio show happened. Check out the playlist here
. Still digging through the back log of vinyl. I'm kind of picking up interest in cassettes again too. Sucks I don't have a player at the crib. We heard some sick beat boxing and rap about sushi in the Language Lab Talent Show performance I found on audio cassette at a flea market. I'll rock it again this week and try to nab it out of the show to post here.
The National Free Culture Conference
is going down this Saturday at Harvard. The day looks to be jam packed with discussions, lectures, lunch, and it's all...free! Highlights in the schedule include an engagement with The Institute for Infinitely Small Things
, and DJ/Rupture
on "creating free culture." Following all that will be "Dance Conspiracy," the afterparty night time get down mobile DJed by yours truly. What's a Dance Conspiracy? Come find out 9:30 pm at the Harvard Square T stop, free (of course).
Tomorrow night I'll be sadly rocking solo. Special guest DJ Axel Foley
is unfortunately out sick. Here's to him getting well soon so he can get back behind the decks! If it's any consolation, Joseph Colbourn
will be spinning on next week's show (May 30th). Him and Ben Sisto
are starting a new night
at the Milky Way
. They'll hopefully both be stopping by to chat things up! More details in future bloggage, and on the air tomorrow night so tune in to know the deal! See you tomorrow at 10pm, wzbseeme,
