msg, bma, etc.

Played with Beatboxer Entertainment at Madison Square Garden on Monday, June 18th. IT was for the halftime entertainment at a basketball charity put on by istarfinancial. The six of us, Masai Electro, Kid Lucky, D Cross, Yako, Yo Yo Beats, and myself, performed seven cover tunes, including White Stripes' Seven Nation Army, Missy Eliot's Work It, and Gnarls Barkley's Crazy. Then Semerock and Shockwave joined in and we freestyled till the end, all with Hypno, Pax Prime, and one other B-boy doing they thing on the court with us. We had a dope time, played in front of about 1500 people, although it looked like a small crowd, given the huge venue! and I got to meet and talk with Doug E Fresh.
This past weekend, I played with Toni Blackman at Brooklyn Museum, for First Saturdays. We performed some of Toni's tunes, and she spoke with the audience about her music, her travels(Ivory Coast, Senegal, South Asia, more), and her experiences as a woman in hip hop. She is a powerful speaker and role model, hope to work with her more in the future. Also connected with her guitarist, Tomas, about a project I had recently spoken over the phone with him about, but never met him face to face. Small world..
Last Friday, I played at LEMURplex's Tranzducer party. It was a small crowd, but it was great performing in a room full of musical robots hanging from the ceiling. I played my bicycle wheel, and a new system I have set up with a Chaos Pad and an Ipod. I'm stoked. I have video. Will post soon.
Working on a new album. Almost done...
