Yesterday was the first ever “Haight Street Music & Merchants Festival” thrown by Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Derby SF and Diamond. The block was filled with 3 stages, with DJ sets from Ruby Red I, Mind Motion, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, to name a few, people walking, dancing, smoking and drinking. All the shops were open, the bars were open where people were watching the Niners smack the Cowboys around, music was playing, the sun was out. Overall, it was a great day and great festival. With performances by Ya Boy, J Boog, Erykah Badu, IAMSU and the whole HBK gang, I’m sure this festival will be going strong for years to come. I tried taking good pics but I was too busy enjoying myself.
Last Thursday, I got to check out the homies, Boog and Hot Rain perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas. It felt like I was back home at a concert with all the “chee huu’s” being yelled throughout the venue, all the FITTED being rocked and of course, Boog and Hot Rain performing. Boog even brought out Wanya from Boyz II Men to sing a couple of notes with him on stage.
Been MIA this past month but all for good reason…work, trade show, work, got married, flew to Vegas back to back weeks pretty much and did I mention that I got married?! Well yup, I got married at the end of the month so I’m bout that life now! Haha ok anyway, I flew to Vegas earlier this month for the Agenda Trade Show. Got some meetings done, went to some events, networked and connected the dots, you know, the usual.
