Afro A Gogo

Once a year, my housemates and I throw a party. We break out the BBQ pit, my man Moses works that beverage magic, my brother Gabe delights us with some obscure footage projected on our wall 9 feet across, and I buy a crap ton of spray paint for our guests to go wild.

We really can’t throw this party more often if we tried. But it’s that time again!

Here’s the flyer I cranked out for it. Thanks to Beto, M.Ake, Slopoke, and Dew for coming through to play us some tunes. Can’t wait!

And as some of you know, I love posters and I’m always looking for reasons to design a few. Feel free to contact me with ideas/events/gigs that you need a poster or flyer for. I need to keep the razor sharp.

Volume 5 of The Payback with Guest DJ Dew

Gonna kick off Obama’s second term by rocking some sweet soul with my man DJ Dew of Lipless. I’m gonna let you know right now: Dew is a collector, and I know he is going to bring some new, new, oldies that I’ve never heard before. Can’t wait to play some records with him that will force you on your feet.

And I know I owe you guys footage from Volume 4 with Reggae Delgado and Slopoke, but it’s a lot of material to go through! Give me a break!

The Payback Vol. 4 last friday was a ton of fun! Guest Dj Reggae Delgado was in true form and really brought it home. And we had a surprise guest come and drop a quick set with us! But more on The Payback at a later time, I have tons of footage to rummage through and show off. Stay tuned for that.

But to whet your appetite, come catch me play some records over at Vinyl Wine Bar with DJ Dew, Debbie DD, Mendoza, and my man DJ Beto. This friday from 8-midnight.

Back from Hiatus with Volume 4 featuring DJ Reggae Delgado

Well it sure has been some time and I do miss this space. Life took a turn for the busy so I took a few weeks off to get my act together and refocus. Nothing like taking a step back from writing to actually take a look at what I have accomplished and what has been roasting on the back burners. I have been investing a lot of energy behind the scenes trying to make sure that The Payback has enough legs to stand on its own. And it has been quite the energy sink. Four months running though and the party is jamming. For Volume 4, we have my good friend DJ Reggae Delgado lined up, the very same man who killed it at the reggae edition of The 45 Sessions last month. I am excited to have him spin with us over at our humble starting grounds at The Monarch Lounge!

Here’s the flyer for this month and a video featuring some footage from the September Payback with DJ Beto.

Delgado and I had a collaboration called #45Fridays way back so make sure to check that when you get a chance.

The Payback Vol. 3 with Guest DJ Beto


What else can I say? It’s the third round of The Payback. This time I got special guest DJ Beto helping out; Beto is partner of last Payback’s DJ M.Ake and a soul, funk, and RnB guru in his own right. If you’ve been to The Long Long Summer then you know This is one nice dude with some great records. I can’t wait to hear what he will serve up.

And oh what secret footage will appear on the big screen? Find out September 14.
