I was in Orlando, Florida at the beginning of the month and had a great time at what is an amazing party – The Lazy Afternoon. My hosts Jonathan and Daniel were warm and welcoming, and we brainstormed about some great ideas, like a grizzly bear that would ride a tricycle while wearing an American flag as cape, in celebration of July 4th.
Happy Halloween, you freaks! The first photo below was taken by my man Chino BYI, but also peep the official Rub Halloween photos after that. Some amazing outfits and really an amazing party. Brooklyn really showed up – like they always do year in and year out. It definitely was a highlight of the year for me, even considering I couldn’t see a thing nor hear a thing – and I had to DJ!
And of course you can peep all of the official Halloween Rub photos by Kenny Rodriguez over at the www.Doobievision.com site. One last thing – I don’t know where this dude got the gumption or the moxie to feel as though he could just cold bite my outfit, but that’s okay cause you know great minds think alike…
So yesterday marked the official end of the Sixpacks, Shotguns & Serato tour! Big thanks to my brothers and partners DJ Ayres, Smalltown Pete & Smalltown Mike for the adventures and the memories. It was a smashing success and wouldn’t have been if we all weren’t such dudes. Also thanks to Miche, Kenny Mac, Jo Magik, our friends at Scion and at Red Bull, Calgary, Banff, Saskatoon, Red Deer, Fernie, Winnipeg, Toronto and Brooklyn for showing love. We documented the whole tour fully so stay tuned for the full video coming soon.
For the last stop of the tour we came to Brooklyn to participate in the very last Jelly NYC Pool Party. It was an amazing time and big shout to Sarah and Alex. Also thanks to Brooklyn for coming out and riding with us without any idea who the special guests were going to be. They ended up being Gucci Mane, DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Cool Kids and Chuck Schumer. Not bad for a lazy Sunday afternoon…
Me, Smalltown Pete, Ayres & Smalltown Mike – A GREAT SUCCESS!
Thanks to my friends at Brooklyn Vegan and also my man Nicky Digital for some great shots and footage (including this exclusive video of DMC, Andrew WK and Les Savy Fav‘s Tim Harrington performing “Walk This Way.”
So I had a pretty busy week this past one, but then again when do I not? This past Wednesday, me and ?uestlove DJed at a private affair which included an absolutely incredible live performance by Janelle Monáe, in intimate midtown Manhattan space for about 300 people. Truly mindblowing, and also, yes I love my life. Then on Friday I shot out to Denver for the first time in about 5 years to rock the newly established Beauty Bar. It was a fantastic time and party, and thanks to all of Mile-High Massive for showing, up, as well as the whole Beauty Bar crew, and last but not least my homeboy DJ Jimi Scott.
Here’s some shots of this past Rub at Southpaw by the one and only Kenny “Doobie” Rodriguez. As I’ve said again and again, the photos, and videos, and live recordings of these shows really do not do it justice. You have to come out and experience if for yourself in the physical. Trust me, it’s worth it. For more photos you can click here to peep the entire photo set.
