Say Cheese

How very appropriate.....

Another Scion brainwashing last night at Sonotheque. Thankfully no line and not very crowded at all. Missed Lord Finesse but caught Ricky Powell's slideshow of his photography, at least the narration. Dude looks pretty bad sadly enough. Still a wisecracking OG New Yorker but he's been helping himself to 2nd's and 3rd's at the dinner table (breakfast and lunch as well). His banter with the audience and constant reference to them as jerkoffs didn't go over so well. The slide show was prematurely aborted following the insistent booing and request for music.

Rob Swift stepped up to the plate and hit a dinger (I know, I know cheesy baseball reference). He ran through his typical DMC battle routine cuttin, scratchin and juggling. Getting his turntablist nerd out of the way he worked the crowd over with a barrage of breaks and classic funk sampled in essential hip hop tracks. With the night coming to an end and enough booze in people, the crowd finally cut loose, turning Sonotheque into basement Y Party circa 1992. Perhaps the most impressive aspect was he did everything sans vinyl relying on the program Finalscratch. Couldn't even tell the difference.

Anybody want to bumrush the gates at Lollapolloza? Hit me up!!!
