Tonite in Philly and NYC

Philly: Welcome to Philly DJ Krush. Krush has been on top of his game for years now. He was here a couple years ago at Marathon Grill outside and my friend (I see you G.) still talks about how great it was. I somehow missed it and he actually went, thats definitely a surprise. Anyway,
DJ Krush truly represents international hip-hop. His real name is Hideaki Ishii, but Krush is just more fun to say. Krush was born in 1962 in Tokyo. After watching the movie "Wild Style" in the early 80s, he bought some turntables, learned to spin and became not only Japan's biggest hip-hop icon, but a world famous DJ, producer and recording artist.

He's kicking off his tour in support of his 8th album Stepping Stones. Its a best of album but in classical Krush style he has remixed all of the tracks.

A few of my favorites from the Lyricism disc:
Pick up both the double disc Soundscapes and Lyricism from Amazon.

New York: Welcome the arrival of Curtis Vodka for free at Sleeper at Thor in the Hotel on Rivington. The spot looks dope. Catchdubs will be there and the party goes til 4. Holler! Check him out in Philly Sept. 17th.
