We’re very proud to be the first U.S. magazine that has ventured into the digital music arena. We are excited to have the opportunity to further our message of ‘Music in Context’ through this new medium.” Check out the site here.

  • 88 Boadrums in Bk

    They’re baaaaaaack! Japanese psych-noise-crazy-genius-types Boredoms will once again bring the clattering of oh-so-many drums to the States this summer, in a bi-coastal sequel to last year’s wildly successful 77BoaDrum event. This time out, they’re calling it 88BoaDrum, and performances of the brand new 88-minute composition from Boredoms leader Eye will take place August 8 (8/8/08, you see) in both Los Angeles and Brooklyn, New York.

    The Los Angeles event will take place beginning at 8:08 PM PST at the city’s famed La Brea Tar Pits, and will feature 88 drummers selected by both the Boredoms and 88Boadrum artistic director Hisham Bharoocha of Soft Circle. The New York event, conducted on behalf of the Boredoms by Brooklyn’s own Gang Gang Dance, goes down at 8:08 PM EST at the Williamsburg waterfront.

    Both BoaDrums will be free and open to the public, but tickets will be required for entry. They’ll be available starting Friday, July 18 at brownpapertickets.com, at L.A.’s Amoeba Records and the L.A. County Museum of Art, or at New York’s Other Music and Sound Fix Records. Only one ticket will be available per person.

    Cost : $10

    UPSTAIRS – Beats, rhymes, and life (sorry, Tip) are the main themes of this new popular night, which features two of the most beloved figures in the underground working today: DJ Rich Medina (Jump & Funk, APT) and Tribe Called Quest main man Q-Tip. This night has become one of Friday night’s do-not-miss destinations due to the fact that the music is hot (a mix of classic funk, hip-hop joints, and an eclectic mix of soul, afrobeat, and funky rock tracks), the crowd will dance all night, and Santos is bumping our insane soundsystem. Hosted by downtown It Girl Va$htie (1992 party), this party rocks!
