Rocked Saul Williams and Afro Punk to prime you for the Sunday show (November 15, Aladdin Theater). Be there or just be bent...

Lots of new music...Earl Greyhound (opening for Saul), Tv on the Radio (not even here but still in effect), some Jack Davey and her band J*Davey (not Afro Punk but still rockers). We even had some Saul Williams to set the airwaves afire.

What is Afro Punk...well, it's full of the fury and political fervor your expect from punk...just with a Black sensibility and swagga....you do know what swagger/ swagga is don't you.? Best act like you do.

Bands like Bad Brains, Fishbone, 24-7 Spyz set the tone (OGs of Afro Punk). You could even add Living Color if your argument was compelling. I doubt Vernon would mind. Nu Skool includes Suffrajett, Noisettes, Earl Greyhound and El Pus who has a member appearing with Saul...Tchaka Diallo. El Pus on MySpace claims they've disbanded, but they've left some tracks...aural artifacts...? Bread crumbs to come find them?

I also rocked Blaktroniks, who dropped hot beats like lava at the Club 6 Afrotek Festival this December past (2008) in San Francisco. You wanna hear Mechanized Soul (first release) to Robo Bop/ The Edge.

So little time, so much music-folks I had lined up didn't play...so you do it:

  • El Pus
  • Black Beard (afro punk, rebel rock/ country...really)
  • Mami Watu
  • Noisettes
  • Keziah Jones (he drops BluFunk)

If I'm inna house next week...it's on! In the meantime,

Peace and hot beats!

Celeste  aka Adiva
