Happy Cinco!! Enjoy a delicious medley of CINCO DE MAYO inspired music.
Apocalypso Tantric Noise Choir will be performing at the Depot Brewery tonight at 8pm. DJ G. Rod , host of Ambiente Latina [Mondays 8pm] will lead the dance floor from 10pm to close.

 

Enjoy learning about this weekend's ARBORFEST at the Arbor Bar April 28-29, 2017 featuring 10 fabulous Iowa bands. Impressario Nicholas Naoti fills us in on the haps.

Plus 2nd hour, it's Tony Ellis, poet, painter, and producer talking about Rishikesh, next year's 50 year anniversary of the Beatles magical mystery tour there, his role producing a George Harrison concert, and much, much more. Tune in!!

Coolzey was borne out of the cornfields of central Iowa and now travels the land from his home base in Los Angeles. A boy who for some unexplained reason grew up only being able to listen to roughneck east coast hip hop and Weird Al Yankovic began looping tapes and rhyming into boomboxes. After that there was Pavement, the Wu Tang Clan, mushrooms, sex, and America.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Coolzey blurb for San Francisco show – LOUDFARM:

“The samples this guy pulls out are incredible, and they make you feel like the first time you heard Big Daddy Kane or KRS-One. The redundant nature of radio hip hop these days makes the genre less than exciting, but Coolzey’s throwbacks to the days before auto-tune was the standard are a welcome break..”

Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt, tempered by 90s alternative era rock influence, yields a juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world, allowing for a wide, unpredictable arsenal of material ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop.

Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord.

James Moore talks with the Fairfield cultural creative enclave known as Cubits. Their new self-titled release is set for April 7th. An album release concert will take place at the Arbor on the same day with a bevy of topnotch support acts starting at 8pm including Jack Lion, Condor & Jaybird, The Vanilla Beans, and Shady Bug.

Cubits
’ Nicholas Naioti, Michael Dugan and Parker DeMers went into their new project with a goal: To find the “balance between complexity and impulsiveness.” All three members come from previous projects (Naioti with MR NASTI and Annalibera, Dugan and DeMers with Captain Ascender), and in Cubits they seem to have found a vessel for both experimentation and self-expression.

“We’re interested in creating a framework from which we can improvise but still maintain attention to detail,” explains Naioti.  --Attwood Magazine
