Don’t Miss This Party Tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg

December 18th, 2012

It’s that time of the year when there’s a different holiday party every night. Some have great food or serve interesting drinks. Others are in a really cool place or might even have an amazing view. But, let’s face it, the best kind of party—holiday or otherwise—is one with great music. And the killer all-star lineup at the Duck Down Music and Javotti Media Holiday Show tonight at Music Hall of Williamsburg is most definitely one you shouldn’t miss. Check out this live party soundtrack: Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch, Sean Price, Buckshot, Smif N Wessun, Flatbush Zombies, Skyzoo and DyMe-A-DuZin of Phony Ppl, all in one place in one night. You’d be crazy to miss it.

The Royal Family Ball Comes to Terminal 5

October 14th, 2011


Soulive (Alan Evans on drums, Neal Evans on the Hammond B3 and Eric Krasno on guitar) formed in the late ’90s and has been bringing its own bluesy, jammy brand of jazz, funk, classic rock and R&B to the dancing masses ever since. Krasno joined the brothers Evans for a recording session in Woodstock in 1999, which eventually became their first EP, Get Down! A host of discs has followed, including last year’s Rubber Soulive, which, as you can imagine, reinterpreted the Beatles. But despite the trio’s recorded virtuosity, far and away the best way to experience these guys is live, which works out great because Soulive (above, doing “Eleanor Rigby” > “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”) hosts the Royal Family Ball—with all sorts of friends, including Lettuce, Roy Hargrove, Pharoahe Monch, Rahzel, Raul Midón and the Shady Hornstomorrow night at Terminal 5.
