For all you suckas lookin’ to get a piece of the brawlin’ action from the only hip-hop group in the city banned from all 6 Capitol Hill Clubs (that’s Mad Rad, people), heed this notice. Instead of gettin’ up for the down stroke at the Holy Mountain tomorrow night, get your (P) smoov on at the Josephine. From the HM proprietors: “due to unfortunate circumstances we had to move our show from holy mountain to the josephine in ballard.” They will still be making a DVD of the show (whew!) and the lineup is worth the (likely) cheap admission. Go here for location info.
Champagne Champagne, who’s emcee Pearl Dragon you can Get To Know here, will be rockin’ the house along with Weekend, DJ Gajamagic’s new electronic project with Ryann Donnelly of Schoolyard Heroes. Chk Minus, Wehrwolve, and Blicky also foot the bill. Lotsa names there; my apologies.
Despite the idiotic actions of Mad Rad at a tenuous time (club violence-wise), they still bring the beats in a tornado storm of Spank Rock yo-yo rap, tech-hop, and white-boy dance sleaze. You may or may not be required to wear shades, 3D or otherwise. Should be a good show.
Tonight you can catch the Dutchess & the Duke playing the Holy Mountain with Smile Brigade. Support your local DIY venue.
