Oh. Shit. You aren’t going to Coachella. My b.
Still, staying in DC this week has potential. You get sunshine, tourists, tourists, cherry blossoms, tourists…and Cazzette!
Tuesday- Black Milk with Nat Turner. Black Milk is a hip hop producer and MC but also does live beat work and works with an MPC. Motherfucking Shake Beats..but black!
Wednesday-Moombathon Massive with the local Nadastrom et al.
Thursday-Kill Paris and Candyland. Kill Paris is teaming with Mat Zo a little later, so this is your chance to see him just do his thing, his future-funk-style with sweet guitar riffs and wompy remixes.
Friday- Mark Farina. 10 doll hairs. He created mushroom jazz! Yeah…not sure about that either.
Saturday- Jacques Greene and Tittsworth. Hahaha tittsworth.
Sunday- Jungle joint, brought to you by potheads united.
Art Department, Jack Beats, Lane 8, Pegboard Nerds, Chromeo, Schlomo, Mo (with a strike through the O…not sure how to do that), Kygo, Atrack, and Flume. The only new thing I want to remind you all of is mo with the strike through. I listened to them all weekend. Such Happiness:
https://soundcloud.com/momomoyouth/m-say-youll-be-there yeah. Spice girls, man.
Wednesday- Pat Green. He has a grammy! I think its country music, so…ew.
Monday, 21st– Boy George. So that’s kind of cool
Otherwise, ALL THE SOLD OUT THINGS. But interesting stuff including but not limited to Rusted Root, Zomboy, La Roux, MS MR, A-Track (as aforementioned in the UHall section), and Xavier Rudd
Friday- Cazzette w/Swanky Tunes, the latter of which I’m actually a much bigger fan of. But Cazzeette also does a great show.
Saturday- Carl Cox. I STILL DON’T GET IT.
James would like us all to go to Carnage on 5/10. And when James tells me to do things, I feel this irrational need to do it because he is so goddamn charming. So…Carnage? Sweet. Lezzgo. Unless you got tickets to Sweeetlife, in which case: have fun with Lana.
Also, Paris Hilton: http://www.dcclubbing.com/dc-concerts/paris-hilton-at-echostage-5-9-14/
I’m pretty stoked for Phoenix and Gareth Emery.
Thursday- DVBBS, with their song “This is dirty”which goes dadada dadada dadada dada dada. Another song called tsunami which goes dadadada dada dada dada dada da. Another song called immortal which goes da da dadadada da da dadadada da da dadadada but then they add a trap beat so it goes dadadada dada dada dada boom kick boom dadadada.
Wednesday- Rufus Wainwright @the Lincoln theater
Thursday- We Are Scientists @Black Cat. I used to listen to them in High school because I was that cool in High School
There’s also this Thank You Festival that I’ve gotten more details on. Good things: Tiesto! Above and Beyond! And the Krew! Bad things: Its at Merryweather, it’s on a Thursday 6/26, lawn is 45 and pavilion is 75. Merp.
In summary: Get Kygo, Lane 8, and Flume tickets (uhall website). Maybe Carnage tickets (echo). stubhub has Phoenix tickets.
I’ll snap you from Coachella! YO SKRILLZZZZZZZZZZZ wait shit I have to get to Muse.
