Â This Saturday (3.10.12), the Cumba Mela Collective, the crew I started running with a couple years ago is finally shaping up our act and putting together a really fun all night dance party in this old and really cool vacant bar in Long Island City. For those of you who are wondering what ever happen to Cumba Mela and that project they did in Colombia, just know things are slowly coming together, and material will be surfacing hopefully by fall of 2012.Â Sometimes we need to take a step back to understand whats the next step to take when working collectively and creatively.
So if you are looking to escape the over priced NYC drinks, and really let loose, this is the spot to hit this Saturday. Take the N or Q to 39th ave QUEENSBOUND, walk east on 39th ave from 31st to 29th street. Trust me you won’t miss it.
In the future, all web TV will come dubbed with Kalup Linzy’s voice. Or maybe there’ll be an app for that, optional. Kalup explains his new series over at Huffington Post. James Franco TV doesn’t allow you to size the embedded video, alas!, so here we go, broader than broadway:
It’s gonna be good: DAS RACIST has put together an amazing playlist of music from South Asia & diaspora for today’s special edition of MuddUp with DJ Rupture on WFMU 91.1fm. It starts with Queen!

And I’m very pleased to announce that my next radio guest wil be the always-inspiring writer / editor / superhero JULIANNE ESCOBEDO SHEPHERD (with a 78% chance of Dapwell)! She’ll be joining us on Monday November 8th. Keywords: DANCE MUSIC.
(I’m blogging this on a phone on BoltBus. Now I’m bus-sick. Dedication vs stupidity).
first up, today is a Very Special Edition of Mudd Up! Radio on WFMU, because I’ll be going from 6-8pm. It’s always nice to do a double shift (two hours instead of my usual action-packed 60minutes). Tune in early!
then get ready for the following week:
DAS RACIST! We’ll be broadcasting live from the combination Pi… I mean, Das Racist are rising rap stars, post-meta, consisently awesome, endlessly quotable, and “super credible.” Their 2010 output of next-level mixtapes, videos, and video games is simply astonishing. So – mark yr calendars and alert yr Social Networks: next Monday, October 18th, I catch up with Das Racist to talk about Ford trucks, apple pie, and bald eagles!
If you haven’t heard Sit Down Man then remedy that. Here are 2 jams from it:
