I had fun opening for Ximena Sariñana at The Hammer Museum last night. The cool after work folks stumbled in and it was cool to meet some listeners of KCRW and chat it up a bit. The Hammer really did a great job setting up the VIP lounge for members of the museum complete with a ping pong table and cool seating. The food trucks were also out and I managed to grab a quick Cookies N Cream bite from Cool Haus. Eric J Lawrence was on hand to take the night out with a bang! Big love to all who came out. Summer Nights at The Hammer continue into August on Thursdays.. Check em out!

It’s Summer time! Let’s get out and hang on a Sunday evening and watch one of my favorite counter culture documentaries that inspired Mear One to get involved in art! We have been planning this for some time and Im finally excited to see this come intro fruition. The folks over at the Oscar Outdoors and KCRW’s Event Department have been hard at work to make this happen! I’ll be on the turntables with some B Boys and street artists showcasing work in real time. I’m also excited to announce that the film’s co director Henry Chalfant will be in the house for an introduction and Q&A.
