R Kelly, Tyrese & Leon Timbo Acoustic Jam on the Transformers 3 Set

Tonight someone who knows my affinity for "The King" sent me this video.
I had to post this up, I was excited to see this video of R. Kelly in Chicago for a late night acoustic jam session with newcomer Leon Timbo. this dude Leon has an amazing voice
 I miss hearing guys with masculine soulful voices that speak to your soul.

The New Music seminar is BACK!
the NMS is one of the most important music seminars EVER...
this series of music related panel discussions and performances over a 3 day span (it used to be a week long event)  is just what the emerging artist/musician needs to lock in the info you will need to navigate through this evolving music industry 
(actually to skip by the dying old industry and into the new digital music industry) 
Margaret Cho being interviewed
for years it was the epitome of artist friendly showcase, where the labels would send their new signees 
to perform for the tough NYC crowd, many many artists got their start at the new music seminar.
Im talking about Madonna, Nona Hendryx, LL Cool J

I personally remember seeing many artist for the first time there as a teen, multi platinum acts like Onyx, Deelite, Tribe called quest, 808 state & Black Rock Coalition founders Living Colour

then there was the ever important NMS battle for world supremacy which included a MC battle 
and the DJ battle that started many careers including those of Dj Jazzy Jeff, DJ Cash Money & DJ Scratch
Precise & Kat Deluna

Kat Deluna took to the stage and TORE IT DOWN!
it was great to be invited this years launch night event, with performances by 
Hip Hop legends Naughty By Nature (all 3 ORIGINAL members!!)
as well as Kat Deluna, Mickey Factz, Rob Cantrell, Matt White
& this amazing iPad DJ Rana Sobhany
Super Producers Niles Rodgers and Kaygee of Naughty By Nature
in attendance this year was a bevy of incredible musicians we even had a conversation with Nile Rodgers!! who said he frecently found master tapers for EVERY song he ever produced!! so expect new unreleased music to be packaged up from household names like Chic & Madonna.
Treach, Tom Silverman & Tramp

For us the most amazing part of the night is the keynote speech given by 
New Music Seminar founder Tom Silverman,
who also is the owner and founder of the LEGENDARY hip hop label Tommy boy records 
(who bought the world, Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, De La Soul & Digital Underground) 
his speech was an energizing call to arms for artist all over the world to take control of their art and have that art speak to the masses!

if you're a musician DO NOT MISS this convention next year when it comes to your city!!
it can mean the difference between just being 1 of of the 100k releases every year 
or being one of the few hundred of successful acts that stand out from that immense number

we had the pleasure of finally having time ro hit up Target 1st saturdays this month
the treat was, the venue (the Brooklyn Museum) 
was showing an Exhibit of work from the legendary Andy Warhol!

so you KNOW we had to go check it out!
What's first saturdays?? 

well it's a event held at the Brooklyn Museum when admission to the museum is FREE (after 5 pm)
and there are tons things to do & see, including many exhibit specific activities for kids and adults

topped off by a HUGE dance party outside 

and a massive Karaoke party inside!!

next to the Warhol exhibit the LIVE music was the draw this month, 
with live performances by 2 amazing brooklyn bands

Analogue Transit is a genre blending electronic/analog duo from Brooklyn,
Kwaku Aning on Vocals and Guitar & Jeff Shreiner on the production

these guys were amazing, we already have their green EP (available on itunes)
their tune Great Jones is an INCREDIBLE song

It was an amazing set with GREAT songs and it set good vibes for the crowd!!

then Dynasty Electric hit the stage.. electric was definitely right word to describe this performance, high energy would be another 2 words..

Dynasty Electric is an electronic rock band also from Brooklyn, 
featuring lead singer and theremin player Jenny Electrik 
and guitarist/saxophonist/producer Seth Misterka. 

the crowd was energized and engaged!!

Jenny playing the theremin!!! Loved that!!

The Warhol exhibit was fantastic. showing work from warhols late period late 70's early 80's
including some of my favorite pieces from him

Warhol's Eggs

Warhol's Yarn

once we made it to the museum, we jumped on line to pick up free tickets to see a screening of 
the film "I shot Andy Warhol" that was showing upstairs

as usual we had a GREAT time, saw a lot of good friends and made some new ones.

our good friend Al who helps throw this amazing event (minority report)
if he says "I'm throwing something" you better make plans to be there!!
