|Finally got around to checking out Season the Microphone Mondays at the Yabba Pot. Hosted by the Unison Collective, the b-Monthly event is quickly gaining steam in Baltimore. Every other Monday, they offer a live DJ, open mic and feature different established acts for $5. DJ Face was DJ-ing on the 10th [the night I attended] so in between sets we were treated to some ghood music. Brown F.I.S.H. and 360 were performing. Both did an excellent job. The set up was very cool - very intimate, little tables, plants....very colorful with lots of cool art adorning the walls. I reccommend this event to anyone looking for a chill spot to hangout on a Monday night. Very peaceful vibe....even saw a few folk that looked over 40. The Yabba Pot is a vegan restaurant with lots of yummy sounding food items on the menu and exotic juices in the coolers.
On some real ish: During BF's set a few members of 360 including Shellbe Raw joined them on stage to perform a tribute song to one of their friends who was recently killed [i believe]....I ended up needing to leave the spot for a sec cause it made me realize that my grandfather had passed not to long ago [December] & I got sad for a sec. Soooooooo I ended up having a "get together" at my house yesterday b/c I wanted to be around some of the people that are part of my new extended family. We had a great time...next time you all will be invited! PROMISE! Life is so so so short. I want to be cool with everyone! I Cherish the time I have with people who genuinly love me. If I have not shown you the proper amount of love lately, please tell me. I need my friends to keep me grounded. I appreciate all of you that came through.....WOW! Im not even gonna name drop! he he!
Be sure to check me out on myspace! Lata!
