K’naan at the Apple Store San Francisco

K'naan Set List


K’naan Set List, orig­i­nally uploaded by stechico.

I had the awe­some oppor­tu­nity to lis­ten to K’naan last night. He had a live, acoustic per­for­mance at the Apple Store in San Fran­cisco. I luck­ily got through 4th/Market early enough as there was a line form­ing from the entrance.

It was my first time see­ing a music per­for­mance in an Apple Store as I usu­ally just go in-and-out to check on stuff. I’m glad that I attended as it was also the first time see­ing K’naan live. It was awe­some. The audi­to­rium wasn’t too big, so it was an inti­mate set­ting. The acoustics in the room was great and crisp. Not to men­tion, the expe­ri­ence and sto­ries shared by K’naan felt like it was a VH1 Sto­ry­tellers ses­sion. It was a very hum­bling and enlight­en­ing expe­ri­ence indeed.

Black Cab Sessions

This is a cool site/music project, Black Cab Ses­sions.

The ses­sions are all about great music and the venue strips this to its essense. We aren’t picky about genre and will hap­pily open the cab door to any­one who blows us away…

I heard about it through Tony Hawk’s tweet early this morn­ing. They fea­ture artists such as: Death Cab for Cutie, My Morn­ing Jacket, Fleet Foxes, The Cool Kids, Lykke Li, and many more great musicians.

Pacquiao vs. Hatton Candid Reaction

Did you see that fight this past Sat­ur­day night? That was some crazy car­nage com­ing from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight some­one who is bad ass at the weight they’re fight­ing in. I’m talk­ing about the Manny “Pac­man” Pac­quiao vs. Ricky “Hit­man” Hat­ton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Bat­tle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s impor­tant or not, but these two are great fight­ers to each in their own right.

Any­ways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was ner­vous right to the first punch. Then Pac­man started set­ting up his com­bos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.

WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn excit­ing, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot cam­era, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hop­ing to get a can­did of everyone’s reac­tion to the rest of the fight.

Lo and behold—it turned out to be a reward­ing, stu­pen­dous and hilar­i­ous idea. They totally were busy cel­e­brat­ing the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.

Any­ways, I hope you like it!
