All Points Jay-Z


Due the unfortunate circumstance surrounding MCA's recent health diagnosis, the Beastie Boys had to cancel a number of shows.

All Points West book Jay-Z as the day one headliner to replace the Beastie Boys. The ultimate showman, Jay-Z came out playing the Beastie Boy's classic "No Sleep Til Brooklyn". Which was a huge hit with the crowd and a bit of a homage to the Boys.

ask permission if i want to go out fishing

This past weekend I had the distinct honor of standing up at the wedding of friend and Canary-in-Chief Cohen as he sealed the deal with his lovely bride, Candace. It was a great time in the Motor City - good to see friends old and new as well as the families of the bride and groom.

Dan and Candace are truly a remarkable couple who I’ve enjoyed spending time with over the years. Much to the dismay of our parents, the three of us decided to pursue Electronic Media majors in college. During our course studies we often found in each other, a great resource of collaboration, challenge and inspiration throughout the program. From all of our collective documentaries, mock newscasts and attempts at sketch comedy programming – Candace and Dan always had it – they’ll now rival Poehler + Arnett for top comedy couple. We wish you all the best together.

Here’s their first dance off Dan’s highly coveted C+D 7-25-09 disc (limited to 300 copies nationwide – check ebay you may get lucky).

Kings Go Forth - Free Download

The Kings Go Forth put on a great show last night at Turner Hall. They have expanded their arsenal of songs and sound. Their set included some great covers; Archie Bell's "Love Will Rain on You", Love's "Alone Again Or" and Mayer Hawthorne's "Maybe So, Maybe No". 

This was scheduled to be their CD release show, but the CD is not quite ready. But they did hand out download cards to tie their fans over. 

J.C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound opened and equally but on a great show. Their cover of Wilco's "I Am Trying To Break Your Heart" was better than the video that DC posted a few weeks back.

Blitzen Trapper at the Pabst

Some blogs said Blitzen Trapper sounded like the mid-60's. But they did in fact take the audience on a musical journey. Each song was layered with great classic American rock harmonies and clean sound. They played off each other well both vocally and musically. Even mixing up styles of folk-pop and big guitar rock, all while keeping their harmonies spot-on all night. 

Thanks to the gang at the Pabst Theater for the $10 show and 88nine for the live broadcast. And drummer Brian Adrian Koch would make a dynomite Teen Wolf for Halloween.

Welcome Matt and Kim

They say that TV is the radio station. Well if that is the case here comes Matt and Kim. Their song "Daylight" has been on heavy rotation on such spots as Bacardi and the new Joel McHale sitcom (which I am very excited for). 

I have been a big fan of Matt and Kim for sometime now. They have ventured into some cool partnerships that offer their fans some free music. I hope more is on  the way.
