Since Halloween falls on a weekend this year, we decided to present a show on a Thursday. I am what they might refer to as temporally limited. But even though Scarface will not be banging sacks of flour over the heads of young trick-or-treaters, I will play “Mind Playing Tricks on Me” if you attend. […]
The New York Times shouted out tomorrow (Tuesday) night’s book reading/panel discussion featuring myself, my co-author, Evan McGarvey, Peter Rosenberg of Hot 97 and Dru-Ha of Duck Down. By “shout out,” I mean, soberly invoked in black and white print. You can find all the information here. Housing Works. 126 Crosby Street. 7 p.m. Cheese, […]

For those who don’t even know, I have a book out. It is about Biggie and 2Pac and co-authored with the estimable Evan McGarvey.  You can buy it at Barnes & Noble, Urban Outfitters, Amazon, and hopefully in bootlegged form on Canal Street. An excerpt is available to read at the Red Bull Music Academy. […]
It’s with sadness and no small amount of disdain that Passion of the Weiss will not be participating in tonight’s show at Harvard & Stone. Last evening, I received word from a third-party that someone at Harvard & Stone had taken a closer look at the bill that I had helped to curate alongside Chicano […]
I apologize for dropping this one on you with such short notice. But I will make amends by presenting a free show featuring Chicano Batman, an Ariel Pink DJ set, Open Mike Eagle, and Wild Pack of Canaries, who may or may not be a giant cage of birds that I will unleash at the […]
Due to a spontaneous and drug-induced act of benevolence, we have decided to make tonight’s show donation-only. Meaning that if you show up, it would be cool if you can give a few bucks so Fat Tony doesn’t enact retribution by ruining my burgeoning snack distribution business. It’s hard out here for a pretzel peddler. […]

I was all set to do one of those sarcastic self-aggrandizing spiels where I use a ton of alliteration and make esoteric references to farm animals in the hopes of getting you to come to the Echoplex tonight. On second thought, I may have just done that. Thankfully, the the erudite Eagle has penned a […]

Forgive me if the next 10 days descends into a flurry of self-promotional B.S. I will try to be tasteful. But obvious bias aside, I’m proud to be putting this site’s name on a pair of upcoming shows. The first goes down next Tuesday, February 21. Killer Mike. Busdriver. Nocando. Open Mike Eagle. At the […]

Unless you live in Los Angeles, you may not know the name Danny Holloway. And even if you’re a resident, you still might be benighted towards the Dublab selector and crate-digger extraordinaire, whose respect runs abyssal within the DJ world. Holloway is a throwback to the days when DJ’s discovered and broke obscure gems through […]
