Because I’m the slacker that Mr. Strickland always said I was, I’m only now announcing the next Passion of the Weiss Presents show. For those inhabiting Mike Brown’s new stomping grounds, the saga unfolds next Friday, June 10 at the Bootleg Theater, with performances from Flash Bang Grenada (Nocando & Busdriver’s new group), Open Mike Eagle, Alpha Pup’s Jonwayne, and My Hollow Drum’s Co Fee. DJ Nobody and Trackstar the DJ will be on the 1’s and probably on the 2’s.
Like an unnamed day of celebration where people in skullcaps dip parsley in salt water, June 10 portends to be a night different from all others. It marks the first ever performance from Flash Bang Grenada, Open Mike Eagle’s record release party for Rappers Will Die Of Natural Causes, and myself doing various weightlifting regiments to the delight and joy of the stunned audience — said exercises including but are not limited to: the ribald power clean, the marvelous tire iron toss, and other orphic feats of strength.). For those who have never seen a photo of me, I am depicted on the flier (ah, the halcyon days before I got hair transplants.) At the risk of the obvious, it’s going to be a great show and it’s only $10. You can’t even buy parsley with that kind of money, but you can see three great rappers and two outstanding producers. Plus, a fancy mustache or two.
