Curren$y At the Fox Pomona

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

This was the show that just keeps on giving….content, I mean. I was looking through the photos from that night and I realized I had also recorded some video. That night, luckily, I was able to borrow some light from the videographers standing next to me in the pit to record this video. I didn’t physically borrow the light, I just stood really close to them and “borrowed” their light…nah mean? The lighting is decent but I do need to invest in a boom microphone if I want to record more performers. Check it out…it’s my first attempt. Oh, and, I ain’t gonna front, can someone help me with the title of the song he is performing?

MC Futuristic The Flytrap

I’ve been listening to the new Flytrap CD Release by MC Futuristic….excellent release. I especially like tracks 14, 15, and 16. Track 15 is my personal favorite, I can listen to it all day…on repeat..I’m a sucker for female vocals on a hip hop track. Click on the image to go to his bandcamp page….or go beyond the jump and listen to track 15-”Butterfly”

Last night, Friday January 13th, I had the privilege of taking some photos of the Dom Kennedy and Curren$y show at the Fox.  I was too late to shoot photos of the Inland Empire’s very own Noa James. Curren$y and Dom Kennedy put on an awesome show…it was cray (or swag, or ill, or…you get the idea). I think it might have sold out. Big Shout out to Abstract Evolution for the show…AND, most importantly, allowing me to shoot the show. Here are the photos. ENJOY!
