First Show over, Weezy too Hott to handle

March 4, 2010 by


After much obsessing, running around, and song editing, the BreakBeat Axiom Radio show went on the air yesterday (or perhaps today, depending on where you put midnight to 1 am). The entire day was plagued by technical issues (Murphy’s Law for the win), ever since I started editing Q-tip’s Won’t Trade for radio use. I’m […]

But in case you are unfamiliar with the group: Forget George Clinton’s rainbow hair and […]

Guilty Pleasures: I love my local bands

February 16, 2010 by


It’s 3am, I’m coming back from watching the third person—in a long line of doe-eyed teenagers—make a mockery of a keg stand (it can’t be called a proper keg stand with an imposed 9 second time limit), and I can’t help but fixate on how these kids are destroying the floors of this apartment by […]

Nneka is Nigerian Awesomeness… And will be at the Middle East!

February 3, 2010 by


Lucky us. Not only do we have MC Frontalot gracing our fair city on Monday, but the super-soulful Nneka will be making an appearance at the Middle East in Cambridge tomorrow evening. The best Nigerian import since petroleum, Hamburg-based Nneka has spent the majority of her young career garnering attention in Europe. Her debut album […]
