I would have never figured that I’d be DJing as a headliner at a venue that I supported so much as an undergrad when I was at Cornell. I also never thought I’d have been teaching a class at my Alma Mater the next morning. Go figure!

REVIVAL w/DJ PQ + NAI PALM
905 Atlantic Ave.

It seems like every time I play in Bed-Stuy, sparks fly and asses shake. I couldn’t resist starting a monthly when my man Alex proposed it to me. This is the first ever edition of our new Revival party. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s the North American debut of a dope, dope singer, Nai Palm, from the band Hiatus Kaiyote (Melbourne, Australia). You’ll be hearing a lot from her band in the years to come. Hear me now, believe me later.

JUMP N FUNK

The seventh annual L.A. Jump N Funk should be nothing less than spectacular, especially with how well AfroBeatles was received at MacArthur Park a few weeks ago. Salute Asad, Cognito and Ryan for their loyalty and effort on behalf of JNF.
