Holy shit… It’s ON in 2013! NYHC is alive and well, and the mighty JUDGE will be performing for the first time in a loooong time!
Tickets go onsale THIS FRIDAY at 10am, and i wouldn’t slouch if you plan on attending… I can see the flights getting booked already. Get ready, folks… This is gonna be a hard one! Here’s the lineup and the ticket link.
Interview with James Muschler of MOON HOOCH; Touring with LOTUS and They Might Be Giants! @moonhooch
The NYC subway system… It’s more than just turnstiles, rats, and fear of homicide. Though the packed cars, shrill stops, and occasional stench of bodily fluids/gas certainly don’t scream “inviting atmosphere,” one can stumble across a fair share of talent vying for the commuter dollar. In my 3 years as an NYC resident, no act made me turn my head, or shake my butt, more than Moon Hooch.
Great interview with Tommy Benedetti from John Brown’s Body; Playing #Syracuse, NY TONIGHT 1/18/13!!! @johnbrownsbody
You’d be hard pressed to find a current roots-reggae band with more drive, innovation, and straight up talent than Ithaca, NY’s John Brown’s Body. If you have ever been to one of their performances, you know what I’m talking about. If you call yourself a reggae fan and haven’t seen them yet, you should either hustle up and get to one, or drop the “fan” moniker from your self-description. These guys wail!
Juelz Santana dropping first new mixtape in 7 years 1/14; Playing Albany TOMORROW, 1/12/13 @upstatehall518 @the juelzsantana
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.
