Vaudevillains City Paper Cover Story

The Space 1026 Mummers collective, the Vaudevillains, are this week's City Paper cover story. Ryan Creed looks into how a bunch of art school kids invaded the ranks of the Mummers brigades.

"They're going to laugh at us! We're the Bad News Bears of the Mummers!"

The New Year's Day Mummers Parade is one of Philadelphia's oldest and most popular traditions, second only to Independence Day. Despite its size, familiarity with the parade is still largely confined to the Delaware Valley. Having roots dating before the Civil War, the parade was officially recognized by the city government in 1901, and its present-day incarnation still shares much with the past: Members of Mummers brigades (largely South Philadelphia men of European descent) wear flamboyant costumes and perform choreographed dances with a rowdy, public drunkenness akin to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
The Vaudevillains will be marching 4th in line, starting at 8:45 from Broad and Washington and will be performing in front of City Hall. Be sure to catch them in person or on TV.

No One Who Reads This Blog Carries About Indy Rock

Is this true. No one emailed me about that Ema CD. Fuck it then I am gonna go back to giving away Mix Tapes and shit.

Who knew that Couche-Tard is a convince store in Canda?

But fuck if it isn't the name of one of the best BBC mix tapes ever. Every BBC mix tape is just so good. I remember getting the first Viola mix tape and just buggin out. Lil John mixed with Pink Floyd in the hay day of mashups and shit like that. Plus they always got them cool Superman shit in the mix. Well not on this mix but on Heavy Metal Mamossa and shit like that. Man Darko I still really want a Darko shirt. Get at me. Oh yeah and he posted that Christmas mix over on the fully fitted blog. If you were lucky and got one from him it came in a Christmas card with a warning sayin, "This is really a mix of all Christmas music". Best part about Couche-Tard mix is that its got like three ska cuts in mix. I am so hyped that Ska is like in the mix next to some dope funky soul and then into so future disco and reggae cuts and shit like that.

Okay funny story about BBC and me. Not really to many cause I am such I fan I stay on the dance floor. I guess in LA I was totally buggin out with them when they was playing the ECHO. They dropped the Riddin Dirty cut on the dance floor and it totally went over well. Oh I guess it should be noted that the Sou Funk record with the Rocky Theme is used in every Spank Rock show and was featured in some You Tube Clip where Spank Rock busts out from under the Dj Booth to it with a cape.

They are basically the number one people I want to work with besides Amanda Blank.

On some other shit no more indy rock cd's although I got a ton of them.

If you want the BBC Couche-Tard mix, email 5151List [at] gmail with the subject "Put that Couche-Tard On Me"

Edible Cocktails

Photo courtesy of neatorama
Yes edible cocktails thanks to Dave Arnold, the head of culinary technology at the French Culinary Institute in Manhattan. David had developed a technique that will turn a pickle into a martini.
Arnold cuts peeled cucumbers into spears and puts them in a Mason jar filled with an 8-to-1 mixture of gin and vermouth. He also adds a touch of simple syrup to counteract the cucumbers’ inherent bitterness. The Mason jar is then placed into a vacuum machine, which removes the air, collapsing the cucumbers’ air pockets...
When the vacuum seal is broken, the martini mixture rushes in to fill the spaces in the cucumber where the air used to be.
Just imagine how many martinis she is holding in that picture. Oh and if anyone wants to buy me a Gastrovac for Christmas, email me and I'll send you my address :) It sounds like you could then make all sorts of edible cocktails. So many possibilities. Mmmm.

Also, if there are any pickle lovers, looking for their soulmate, I think I found your perfect match: Miss M Pickles

Edit: Alternatively I might just get the Reveo, not quite as cool as the Gastrovac but quite a bit cheaper.

Avenue Q in Philly

Woohoo! Avenue Q is playing in Philly for two weeks at the Forrest Theater. A portion of the actors in Avenue Q are actually puppets, however, this is not the Muppet Show. The theater warns against bringing children under the age of 12 as the show deals with adult themes.
AVENUE Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. He soon discovers that the only neighborhood in his price range is Avenue Q; still, the neighbors seem nice...Together, Princeton and his newfound friends struggle to find jobs, dates, and their ever-elusive purpose in life.
For an idea of the type of musical Avenue Q is, watch "The Internet is for Porn" animated using Warcraft characters.

Avenue Q runs from January 29th to February 10th. Tickets range from 31.50 to 126.50 and can be purchased here. Read more about Avenue Q.

The Jang House and PackofRats Birthday

30 at the club. Come celebrate as PackofRats begins his "descent into old age and irrelevance". Tonight is his actual birthday so come out and buy him a shot as he attempts to dj with notable other non DJ MC Spankrock aka DJ Leroy Jetson and That Dude Ian. Actually there will be a real DJ and his name is Si Young. He's good. To make all of this that much more interesting, this is the start of a weekly party at the Barbary. Jayson also wanted me to blog about the conversation he had with John Thousand yesterday at the Flea Market. They got into a discussion about who the best kisser in Plastic Little was. Kurt thinks Jayson kisses like a girl and Jon was a bit upset that he hadn't got to kiss Jayson yet. I suggested a kissing booth and they both agreed. This is a special opening night jawn, so don't miss out.

Also, I promise I'll post more than videos next week. I felt like I was turning this into a vlog, but I'd rather post content than nothing at all. Speaking of which, I'm still trying to track down a new source for the Bangers and Cash - Loose video, I knew I should have grabbed it while it was up. Anybody else notice how we got kind of dirty in a good way though. By the way, got any sordid tales from a late night jumpoff? Maybe how you met your side jawn?

Enjoy The Emma Pollock CD for Free




I got this CD a while ago and it just sat in my drawer. Then one day I put it on and had the first song on repeat for the whole day. Imagine one of those video montages of the same song were the listener is laying in a bunch of different positions on the ground, in the chair, typing, laughing, thinking, maybe alittle bit of crying and the song keeps playing. Well that was me one day all hung over at work. I was laying on the floor and shit looking all indy. Then it was 4:30 and I was like let me listen to the rest of the CD and I wasn't really feeling it. Its for like girls who wanna be standing in the rain while the dude they kinda like is driving away after they just had a light lunch and made out in rittenhouse square but only lightly since you don't wanna show any PDA but really cause she is kinda crushin on that cute red head dude that has that funny off center tattoo on his arm and he is always carrying around his little toy dog thats cute but only in that insensitive sort of way paired with a scarf, on a dude. Seriously I was kinda feeling this so now I am gonna pass it on to some chick or overly sensitive dude who is in the hug club.

Saturday with the Juan McLean

Its The Juan MacLean at Transit this Saturday with them Philadelphyinz on the main floor. You know DFA records, then you know them. Heck you probably know them better than I do. Don't worry, Brendan is still killing it downstairs and Dirty has the house music bumping upstairs. Also, free PBR 10 - 12. That pretty much pays for the 6.99 ticket itself. Get tickets here.

Saul William's Niggy Tardust Review...in Haiku



Saul and Trent combine

and create great Nine Inch Nails

but not quite the same



Get the point? If not here is a little more extrapolation for you.

Point: This new album by Saul Williams shows growth and development by him as a song writer and as a vocalist. He moves out of his poetic flow, mostly, for more singing, chanting and some screaming; to varying degrees of success (and, in my opinion, little failure.) Lyrically, his specialty, he moves away from much of his direct lyricism and towards a more opaque, metaphorical style.

Counterpoint: Fans of his that vehemently hate the sound of Nine Inch Nails will probably dislike this record. Fans of Nine Inch Nails that could ultimately love this record will most likely never give it a chance because they "saw him (Saul) open up for Trent and he was pure crap." (real quote...repeated several times to me...by some idiots I know...my xenophobic friends)

Below is their cover of U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday."

Def Jux Belt Buckle and Dog Tag for Sale




El-P talking shit on Spank Rock sparked the hottest comments battle on this blog. Shit was kinda unincredible with three friends talking bullshit to each other probably all drunk by themselves in front of a computer when they should have been out and about getting wasted at a bar drinking with some overweight bitches. Instead they was like lets stay inside talk about hip hop cause like when I grow older I am totally gonna keep it real and teach my kid about that real shit and not that wack shit even though my son has an angle haircut and is listening to fall out boy 2 the sequel or maybe fall out boy will be like the Stones or some shit.

But this brought up the fact that I once was super into Def Jux fan boy type shit. And I mean super super into Def Jux cause I thought they were gonna change Hip Hop. I had the first Can Ox, Co Fo split 12" and sat in my dorm room buggin out. I just sat staring at the art work and the rhymes about scientifical word play madness. I was dating this girl totally into Jay Rule at the time and she was like turn that shit the fuck off and lets listen to some music that we can ball out in a hot tube in even though we was in the middle of Indiana in the winter time. We had a deep understanding of each other at that time so I totally tried to explain to her the power of Deep Space 9mm when I played it for her and her response was "no one would ever dance to this shit". And to this day thats still true. The production is incredible but its headphone music. So of course for the whole time we were dating I just thought I was musically superior to her. Then I heard the RJD2 single and my whole life was flipped since that dude really was the next Dj Shadow. This she enjoyed but still thought it was not as good as Snoop Dog, so I tried to educate her. Then we moved to Philadelphia together which I am super duper happy about even though the three years we lived here together were pure hell. So after buying all the Def Jux 12"s and CD's and shit and the promise to overthrow hip hop it dawned on me. They are not gonna do it. They just exist in there own scene that they created and will be the top of the heap in that scene. That’s about it. They don't really have cross over appeal there is no face of the Def Jux camp that is gonna be able to go up against Young Jezzy or what ever. They are just two different genres and it’s pretty stupid to compare them. If Def Jux really wants to cross over like that then they should sign Mickey Avalon but even his beats are not based on space samples and that really annoying sound the phone makes if you leave it off the hook for to long. There greatest hope for cross over appeal was RJD2 and all the shit he is touching right now turns to shit.

Bottom line is once in like 2004 Def Jux was running this special to buy a special DJ bag or some shit and inside was a bunch of records. Included in that was this special RJD2 private pressed record for his tour gigs of like special blends and break cuts for his live act. This is before Serato and all that shit so that’s what people used to do and any ways I wanted one. So I had to buy this whole craziness which I wasn't that mad at since I was a big Def Jux fan but..

Now I have this Belt buckle and Dog Tag that I have never worn so if some one wants to buy it for their independent hip hop hommie get at me. Oh yeah the belt buckle is the vinyl monster thing from Def Jux PSt Vol 2. Vinyl monster haha how things have changed.

I will let both go for a cool 50 bucks just hit me up.

Doin It Well Calendar


Art can always compensate for, how do you say, uh risque images. Take for example Loose, in the future there will be term papers written about the social significance of Bangers and Cash. Meanwhile, fellow Philly artists have compiled an artistic calendar fit for friends, brothers and side jawns alike. Enter the Doing It Well 12 Month Calendar:
Recipients will be able to savor that holiday magic year round with twelve full color 9x9 glossy illustrations of everyone's biggest fantasies. Acts made popular by internet creeps and urban legend are brought to life in fantastic illustrations inspired by The Angry Pirate, The Donkey Punch, and everyone's favorite, Dog in a Bathtub [plus 9 more!].
Sadly 2 Girls 1 (insert finale here) was too much of a late phenomenon to make it, but hopefully next year. Order Doing it Well for less than the cost of a cab ride and cheap bottle of wine ($12) from Bent Stationery.

Where as all yall were hoping to see booties in B.O.O.T.A.Y. and it was entirely too wholesome, the gang made up for it with this one. Favorite comment so far "wow,i've never seen a porn music video this is amazing." Think Spank Rock invading a porn shoot and rapping with lots of champagne. Couple friends stop by including Brendan Bring'em, Rose from Sweatheart and Dirty South Joe. In the immortal words of Amanda Blank "These bitches is nasssttyy."

Scotti B x's Bird Peterson

Yiippy ya do do do do dododododod



Like autumn leaves being sucked into the hellfire of the cosmos, we present to you Bird Peterson's Plays... EP. Mr. Peterson, or Texas-based Andrew Hoke, has one goal in his lifetime. This goal, which we wont mention until the end, is carried in a diamond-crusted flintcraw that sits in the passenger seat of Mr. Petersons Ship Of Hot Jams. He guards this bag with a cloak made of wishes and peppermints. And he has a jet. Boat. He has a jetboat.

In conclusion, Bird Petersons goal (the one we mentioned earlier) is coming true for everyone that listens to his hot dancefloor masterpeices. Are you ready to be a part of the magic? Are you ready to harness the power of the wizards touch? Are you capable of fusing together energy and will? Are you going to run through the hallway of your office, ripping your tie off while Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel blares in your mind? Are you going to take the wheel to the Sparkleship Seven as it blasts at full speed towards the sun? Can I borrow 20 dollars? Are you going to accept the red hot power of a thousand glowing electric guitars at your next church potluck? If so, then buy this record.

I love this text by the way. Scotti B turned in one of the weirdest forward thinking Baltimore club remixs that we have ever heard and I kinda love it.

Enjoy

Current.tv up on their ish. Or maybe they just saw the video after it got featured on Youtube front page. 380,000 views just don't read the comments. Just amazing, and incredibly hateful and not just in a "I don't like this song" way.

New FACT MAGAZINE OUT TODAY


dbt dbt dbt dbt dbt dun dun dun dun dun dun ddun air horn vocal burbr brurbrburbur


This is like the new type of music I am into. I have no idea what its called but I know its not dubstep. Basically its like that hybrid shit 4x4 and like speed garage and shit. I first got into from listening to Trouble and Basssss mixtapes and hearing Drop the Lime dj out and drop these nasty little gems. Then it was further solidified listening to the Dubsided camps bass lines that Herve, Switch and Sinden be droppin. Then I heard Todosantos and shit just floored me since they was using elements of this but in a new way. Then like a month ago I was told by a member of Todosantos that this genre is called Nichestep or some shit like that and I am totally into it. Todays mix I have been jammin all day is from these dudes Fagatronix that I grabbed out of Fact Magazine. Shit is nice and slammin. Fagatronix sound like some myspace dj crew of whateverness and this mix smacks of a bedroom and ableton live but I am totally feeling it.Added bonus they drop a Dwizz track...

Since your already over at Fact you might as well take a read of Sindens year wrap up of shit he is feeling. The article is dope highlighting a lot of my favorite people killing it in the game right now also, Buraka, Dude and Nem, Trouble and Bass etc just go read it.

Side note to Fagatronix you should read Catchdubs article in the new Fader about The New Dj Culture. You can download it from Itunes.

RIP Pimp C



TMZ first broke this and I didn't want to believe it but its true. Pimp C's publicist has confirmed it. All of this after Spice 1 was shot twice earlier this morning and left in critical condition. I really wanted to post "Pocket Full of Stones" but couldn't find the video for it. A hip hop legend has passed.

The Really Real WAHHHHHBLAAAAHHHHHHHHHH

Yo this is the dude(to the left) that sold me a ticket to the show from Bmore. Good looking hommie we were gonna try and invite ourselves into your game of Asshole to get some free beers but had to go pick up that other ticket. Hit me up next time you are in Philly.

To look at other pictures from the after party take a look over here at two one five website. The pictures really suck loading cause they is trying to milk that add revenue for all its worth.

Supposedly some drama popped at this party between MIA and Diplo as reported by Philiberty, but who really cares when you could see Santi doing her thang on the dance floor. Biggest let down of the night was DJ Sega going on for 5 mins on the main floor before the lights came on. I think he played the action news theme and they cut him off.

Stateless Acoustic

I fell in love with the singer's voice on the last DJ Shadow record. Stateless is more akin to mixing Radiohead with DJ Shadow usually, but this song is an acoustic rendition. And. It. Rules.
