Former Dipset honcho and all-around gangsta rapper JUELZ SANTANA will be dropping a new mixtape on DATPIFF on 1/14, his first in a very long time.

Additionally, Juelz will be making a rare stop in Upstate NY on Saturday, 1/14/13, when he hits Upstate Concert Hall (formerly Northern Lights) in Clifton Park, NY. Road trip!!! For any of you aspiring rappers and artists out there, the promoter is STILL taking submissions to open the show, but you’d better get on it immediately if you’d like to be considered.

Tickets are $23 at the door, and don’t be stupid… Security at the venue is super tight.

Brooklyn, NY electronic duo BREAK SCIENCE are fantastic! Though the explosive popularity of Dubstep and EDM has flooded the musical market with many hard partying yet derivative mp3 jockeys, these Brooklyn boys offer so much more in terms of writing creativity, performance quality, genre blending, and musical innovation than most of their counterparts.

Interview with MARCO BENEVENTO; Playing Syracuse, Ithaca, and Albany this week! @marcobenevento @royalpotato

Brooklyn, NY based Pianist/Organist/Composer/Virtuoso Marco Benevento has accomplished many things during his musical tenure. Between his indie-rock duo Benevento Russo, his band Bustle In Your Hedgerow (you figure it out,) Garage A Trois (with Stanton Moore,) and his solo output, one could say Marco Benevento is slightly busy. Add a family on top of that, and it makes you wonder when the guy has time to sleep.

HENRY ROLLINS is coming to Albany, NY this Thursday 10/25 at The Egg; Check out our interview with him below.

Henry Rollins’ “Takes On Capitalism” speaking tour is coming to Albany, NY tomorrow, and who doesn’t love Hank? If you’re looking for an ever-intriguing take on social/fiscal/moral issues, one needn’t look further than Mr. Rollins, as his speaking engagements virtually ensure a candid, argumentative, and gruff outlook on current events. Did you know he sang in Black Flag?!

Past punk rock achievements aside, we at Live High Five thoroughly endorse checking out his performance, at least once, so if you’re able to make it, you definitely should. Remaining dates are listed below, and you can check out our email interview with the man HERE.
