Watch how it go down
Good news, friends. After months of badgering letters and vindictive emails, Clean Guns and J-Direct, two of my favorite hip-hop groups not named Outkast or The Roots, have finally honored my request/ultimatum to do a show in New York. Plus as far as I know, this is gonna be Clean Guns' New York premiere and at least half of a hometown show for J-Direct. Plus Lola Johnson, Arthur Lewis and Jon Braman are gonna be there! (I've never heard of any of them, but if they're on this bill, I'm expecting good things.) Plus special guests! (I'll just go ahead and pretend that means me.) So in summary, if you're in Brooklyn tomorrow, this is one not to miss. Trust me, it's gonna be hotter than your girlfriend after fat camp.
Clean Guns, J-Direct, et al. Don Pedro's, 90 Manhattan Ave., Brooklyn, Saturday, December 29th, 8 pm. $5.
