My Life: Catalpa Music Festival Launches in NYC to Much Fanfare as Snoop Dogg, A$AP Rocky, araabMUZIK, and More Bring the Excitement

When it comes to NYC, it’s known that some of the best acts play here multiple times per year – we’re spoiled in that sense. We annually have summer festivals like Electric Zoo, Governors Ball, Rock the Bells, Bamboozle, and many more to please our musical appetites. Well, there’s always room for one more, isn’t […]

My Life: Mac Miller’s “Blue Slide Park” Album Listening Session

I’ve been following Mac Miller’s career for a little while now and I’ve noticed hip hop fans either love him or hate him – for whatever reason. I personally enjoy what he does on the microphone because he stays true to what he knows, he has fun with it and he can definitely spit. I’d […]

My Life: DC’s Fat Trel Rocks NYC at The Fader Fort (CMJ Part 1)

If you don’t already know, CMJ is a similar type of concert series as something like SXSW in Austin or A3C down in Atlanta – up and coming artists (and some established ones as well) taking over all the music venues in the city for an ongoing concert series. From last Wed through Saturday I […]

My Life: Boston Takes NYC as The Dean’s List Tears Up Webster Hall

I started out the night by rolling down to the East Village by NYC staple venue Webster Hall to check out up and coming Boston group The Dean’s List for the very first time. I’ve been in the loop with The Dean’s List for probably a year and half or so and I’ve watched them […]

My Life: J.Cole’s ‘Dollar and a Dream’ $1 Concert at Roseland Ballroom

This won’t be a full review since I didn’t have a camera with me (camera phone pic above and a pic of the album I snagged), but cheers to Cole for putting on yet another great show for the people of NYC. Tickets were only $1.00 for this one-shot show, so it was a great […]

My Life: J.Cole Listening Session for “Cole World: The Sideline Story”

Wow. What a ride it has been for J.Cole over the past few years. I remember him standing around on the street outside NYC venue Le Poisson Rouge for his own mixtape release (The Warm Up) and a portion of the people not even really knowing what he looked like. That was about two years, […]

My Life: NYC’s Fashion’s Night Out 2011 W/ Kid Cudi, Up Close Look at Nike “Back to the Future” Air Mags

So if you don’t already know, Fashion’s Night Out is, essentially, a night where all the stores are open late, hold promotions, have celebrities appear/perform, etc. Obviously, like most things, NYC is the mecca for such a night. Last year I actually caught N.E.R.D. performing on the back of a truck with Chris Brown. This […]

My Life: Billboard Summer Blowout w/ Swizz Beatz, Estelle

Quite truthfully, this is more for archival purposes than anything at this point since. I thought I had accidentally deleted all the photos, but I just found the folder. Quick recap: Billboard.com put together one last big concert to end the Summer (though this was held on the 11th of August), headlined by Swizz Beats […]
