Music

{51+}

With sunny temperatures and snacks packed, we headed to Seoul for the 51 + music festival.  Last year was entertaining, and this year the location was on the edge of a park at a liberal arts college. Maundrie Fox played, along with Yamagata Tweakster {acoustic set}, Trampauline, and some new bands to my ears. Taking over what appeared to be the theater arts building, different bands played on each floor, including the roof top! A small flea market was held outside along with kimbap, beer, and lemonade for sale. Most of the people who attended were Korean college students. The festival covered all genres of music, and the day was definitely a success by any listeners’ standard.

[VIDEO] Tupac Back from the Dead for one Show with Dre and Snoop Dogg

Elvis has reentered the building ladies and gentleman.

From the LA Times:

Last weekend as the first of two identical weekends of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival drew to a close, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg unveiled a shocking surprise when the pair reincarnated slain West Coast superstar Tupac Shakur onstage in a hologram-like image that rapped and danced along with the two very alive heavyweights.

Wild whacky stuff this. Whose next? Hendrix? Jim Morrison? Mr. Rogers?

[VIDEO] A Very Cool Clip from Korea’s Look 2 Listen

I was there back in the day, during the origins of Hip Hop, battling it out with my rivals on the corners and on my home turf at the Meridian Quad in San Jose, California.  I was fortunate during my short-lived time as a rapper that I actually opened in front of 5,000 people for Run DMC, Kurtis Blow, Whodini and the Fat Boys in Stockton on December 4, 1984 during the nationwide tour of the Fresh Fest.

I have been meaning to write the story down of my one year as Bee~Mac, the Rapper Supreme. It was wild. I will get to it, I promise.

Yeah, I was dope… though we called it “fresh” back then. And I had the novelty of being one of the few White boys doing it way back when.

[Twenty] Who is EXO?

If you haven't heard already, SM, one of the largest record labels in Korea has released a new boy band in the end of March/early April. 


The group is called EXO, which is another way of referring to extrasolar (exo) planets, that lie out of our solar system. As extraterrestrial as that name sounds, the group EXO is a truly revolutionary group that is topping music charts in Korea, China, and Japan. In addition, EXO has a huge fan base based on various online sites, literally around the world, from Italy to Indonesia and beyond.
