A new category of the 45 Brains blog is born: “Soul Ads” – a dedication to the art of soul and vinyl gigs. Not unlike album cover art, the gig poster (or flyer) gives an impression of what might be expected. Days before you arrive at the venue, you should already be primed to enjoy the show to the fullest. That is, you make a connection with the music long before you hear it.
This week there is a lot going on, with DJ M3 spinning tomorrow and friday in San Francisco and The Butta Bros. coming out to Oakland to collaborate with The 45 Sessions. I have personally seen and heard M3 and Skeme spin and they are sure to move a crowd. With them, it’s not just music, it’s an experience. You need to be there to understand what I’m talking about.
