Our friends over at Veoba celebrated the coming out of their new site with a bash at Beauty Bar in Chicago. Played by Jokers of the Scene, Acid Girls, Necrocomicon, and Just Desserts, the thing was popping all night. Talking to people sitting in beauty parlor chairs, getting sweaty as hell on the dancefloor, disco, booze, photos and people getting pedicures. At the end it got popping again when some other jokers lit off some fireworks outside. After that we hit up Five Star to afterparty with the massive amount of dirty girls over there. Good times. And to think I just went in there to play some pool.
At the beginning of February, while in L.A. I got pulled into the photoshoot for the Blood Is The New Black Summer 2010 line. It was a really good time with beer, pizza, beautiful people, a great band called Signals and best of all I got to hit things with a stick. Here are some shots from that glorious day.
go HERE to see the rest of them.
Blood Is The New Black is a clothing company out of LA that makes really cool Tshirts. When I was in LA a couple weeks ago, I got pulled into the photoshoot for their 2010 summer collection. It was good times all around. The Signals dudes held it down with the live music, and all the people there were cool as hell. The actual flicks from the shoot are dropping in March sometime. Look out for your boy.
On the way back from Mission Creek we stopped in Rock Island, IL to record for Daytrotter. Thanks to Andre from Mission Creek for that one. Daytrotter records short live sessions from bands like My Morning Jacket, Of Montreal, Death Cab For Cutie, etc. And they wanted us to come in. Nice.
We recorded 4 songs. Party Steady and Run To The Facts, off of the Mae Shi Mash-up album, Middle America , off of The Future’s Looking Grim, we did acapella, and we finally put Thank You For Being A Friend to tape. It was a blast. Bigups to Sean and Mike, here’s some flicks.
Yesterday we played Mission Creek in Iowa. Two words. Hells yeah. YB+KS opened for GZA. The Genius. I met him down in Austin for SXSW at the Mohawk, which was weird for two reasons. 1. It was a spaz punk show. 2. He actually came up and talked to me. Let me correct that, he told his people to come up and talk to me. “Tell that dude in the red hat he did a good rap on stage.” Word. Fast forward to a week and a half later and we’re hanging out in his dressing room. The show sold out. And let me say that a crowd of damn near 800 people shouting “Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang!” is a hard sell. But guess who pulled it off. That’s right. We did.

Check out some pictures from South By this past week. Hung out with the Mae Shi (LA) alot, caught Kid Cudi, Freeway, and the boy Charles Hamilton among others on the street.
Saw mad Chicago heads down south including Intel, Million$Mano, and your boy Clayton Hauck. Also met mad heads from around the world who were familiar with the music which made me happy as hell. Skibunny from Belfast let us know they’ve been drilling our tracks hard out in Ireland.
I’m so happy to have met everyone I did, there are alot of great people out there. Best shows: The Mae Shi, Monotonix, Health, Slow Club, Po Po, Pre, P.O.S. Brother Ali, Diplo. Good times.
