E&J Brandy is America’s most awarded brandy. Celebrating their 40the anniversary, they’ve embarked on a “Generations of Soul” campaign featuring the musical talents of Raphael Saadiq, BJ the Chicago Kid and Lee Fields. We were able to attend their private concert at Mack Sennett Studios on 4/2/15 and Lee Fields gave a stellar and intimate performance.
I won’t be able to go to Coachella this year, but I still got to enjoy a ton of the performances from weekend one of the festival. Thank God for the internet!

Earlier this year, Seth Avett and Jessica Lea Mayfield released an elegant album of Elliot Smith covers, “Seth Avett & Jessica Lea Mayfield Sing Elliott Smith“. We were able attend the last concert in support of their album. Derrick snapped the pics. Erin wrote the piece. Enjoy!
Snoop Dogg just dropped one of the hottest new music videos I’ve seen in a while. Directed by Francois Rousselet, the video for “So Many Pros” uses the artistic stylings of vintage movie posters from the late 70s and 80s, and it pays off visually. Check out the video below!
“Oh I want to go back to the old days … those good old days on The Hill”
I have a lot of fond memories of my college days at Cornell University, but some of the greatest ones I have are those that involve singing.
Late last year, I got to see a rapper named Mod Sun “light up” a stage at the Sunset Music Festival. A few weeks later, I read in a trade magazine that Rostrum Records (home to artists like Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller) had signed the artist to their label. It made total sense.
For those of us unfortunate souls who weren’t able to make it out to the desert this year for the music explosion that is Coachella, watch selected streamed performances here … from ALL THREE CHANNELS! The show starts now!
The only non-rapper on Mod Sun’s “Look Up Tour” was Hollywood’s own R&B/Neo-Soul crooner Mat Musto p/k/a Blackbear. The mood was immediately set when the house lights dimmed to an almost completely pitch black.
Rapping the east coast on the Mod Sun’s “Look Up Tour” was Brooklyn, New York rapper Dillon Cooper. His flow was on point and I was particularly impressed with the quality of his rhymes.
Los Angeles based rapper KR had one of the opening slots for Mod Sun’s “Look Up Tour”. He’s seems to be making some waves as of late, and was evening featured in an L.A. Weekly article for being a Soundcloud rap phenom.
