Last weekend, was one of the better musical weekends I’ve ever had. Local Natives did exactly what I hoped they would: Wow the sell out crowd with harmonies that result in group sing-a-longs. Matt & Kim also did precisely what I wished: Have everyone dancing from start to end and smile the entire show. The spare moments when they threw in interpolations of “The Final Countdown”, “Shimmy Shimmy Yea”, “Just a Friend” and a bat-shit rendition of “Better Off Alone” were priceless. Be sure to send your traveling JayeL Hat photos….
In other news, Dr. Dre co-hort Dawaun Parker sent on his first track as an artist and its right up my alley. Not sure why he decided to build things up with 3-4 e-mails prior to the release of the actual track, but we’ll let it slide this time.
