Woke up and hit up some local breakfast than made a stop the Couch Sessions day time jump off.  Jesse Boykins III kicked things off with heavy bass and beats as he bounced across the stage going through his catalogue of songs. Hiatus Kaiyote followed with their amazing Melbourne sounds. It was great to finally see the entire band. The crowd was very much receptive.  They killed it!  This was my first time catching Cheerub from Nashville Tennessee. Techno sounds and hard 4 on the floor beats mixed with sultry vocals was nice. A blend of Prince with house.  Allen Stone from Washington stole the show with his rendition of  Bob Marley’s classic Is This Love which took everyone to church!  I was super excited to see Body Language out of NYC.  Nice heavy boogie beats with soulful vox. Amp Live of Plug Research did a little set showcasing his beats on his recently released project on Plug Reserch. Next up was Robert Glasper with special guest Erykah Badu. But that didnt happen! Only a bit of a soundcheck before cops shut it down. Badu came out tho’ and snapped pics with fans.  Okay. On to the next one! See you!

One of my best investments is my camera. Life is short. I often wonder what my seeds might think when they look back at this blog. Im not really sure I keep a blog. Sure I love art, culture, changing tides in fashion and music but this is more than that.  This is a documentation of time and space. From everything I play on the radio to being allowed to have the freedom to do the things that I wish to do (i.e interviews, mixes, chats) and just capturing all that surrounds me.  It allows me to do things my way.  It’s not always the best way but its my creative hub to do the things that I feel get pushed aside.

When I look at these pics I am reminded of folks who took art into a direction that made them content at that time. I was in the right place at the right time to snap these shots of them in a certain place and they were okay with that. The trust between an artist and person with a camera is sacred.  I am grateful to be able to capture these musical movements with a radio show and a camera but I prefer to be on the front lines with camera in two, microphone on and ready to record.  I love to be in that space of creation. Being able to document it with a camera is exciting!  I encourage you to create your blog! Capture whats around you. Create a podcast!  Enjoy these snapshots! Let me know what you think!
