Review: K'naan: Troubadour

Reviewed the new K'naan album, "Troubadour," for CultureBully. It's definitely worth a listen.

Here's the Link.

Verve Grant Winner

So I just got a bunch of money to do spoken-word through Intermedia Arts and the Verve Grant program. With that money, I'm working on a one-man show dealing with the intersection of work and identity; a lot of it is written, and I'm just working on wrapping it up. Look for a production this year sometime.

I'm also not the only winner: Tish Jones, Tou Saiko Lee, Khary Jackson and the Poetic Assassins are all going to be doing big things with year with the support of Verve. Paul Flores was the judge. It's a great group of people; definitely looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

It's refreshing to see (much less be a part of) a program like this. Grants for spoken-word artists? This is the kind of thing we need more of. In the meantime, check out Intermedia Arts, maybe give something; they do some great work.

Friday, 2/20 at Stasius

I'll be playing a set with Big Cats! We'll be debuting lots of brand new material. I also bought some new pants, so that's always good.

Rift Magazine is a local arts publication. If you can't make it to the show, you can still donate HERE.

Best of January 2009

Retroselective is a new feature over at CultureBully where we talk about our favorite music/events/whatever of the previous month. Check it out. Lots of good stuff in there, though I'm sure we missed something.
