Lily Allen Rocks!

I just heard from the Grapevine (actu­al­ly Khang from Vain­deer) that Lily Allen will be per­form­ing tonight in Frisco at the Pop­scene.

It’s the very first time I heard of that name, but her voice is so damn famil­iar. I know I’ve heard her music before but just haven’t put a name to the vocal­ist. Any­ways, she is dope!

She has that pop and ska influ­ence with a lit­tle bit of rebe­lious rock. The accent helps out as well as it makes her unique and adds spice to her deliv­ery. Go check her out and sup­port:


Kasabian’s Empire

Kasabian - Empire

I don’t know what it was that led me to Kasabi­an’s webiste just right now, but I was quite awe struck about find­ing out the change on their site, as well as the press about their new album, Empire. Mean­while, I also found out that they were about to per­form at Let­ter­man in just a few min­utes. I was for­tu­nate enough to catch them.

Any­ways, make sure to have a lis­ten to this group if you haven’t already. As I’ve said before, “these blokes rock rat-ass!” So what about it eh?! Give ’em a play and I promise you, you’ll hear noth­ing more than pure exhil­a­ra­tion!

From okayplayer.com:

This is an exteme­ly sad day. We have lost one of the great­est pro­duc­ers of all time, peri­od. That fact is not even up for debate. For us fans and for those that were lucky enough to know Dil­la, this is a tough pill to swal­low. What makes it worse is know­ing that the major­i­ty of the hip hop world will not mourn this loss like those in our com­mu­ni­ty. We can only hope that one day the world will know his music the way die hard Dil­la fans do, and he will posthu­mous­ly recieve the respect and admi­ra­tion that his influ­ence com­mands. RIP Dil­la Dog.

James Yancey passed around 8:00 this morn­ing in Los Ange­les, Cal­i­for­nia. His lat­est album, Donuts, was released ear­li­er this week.
