Soundset 2012 Announced!

Posted in Concert Dates, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on Monday, March 5, 2012 by Tim Althaus

Sorry for the delay in my posting lately folks, but I’ve been swamped in my personal life. Anyways, I was at work today when I got about 3 different text messages pertaining to this year’s Soundset Festival in Shakopee, MN. Let me tell you right now, my heart dropped when I saw this lineup; it is utterly fantastic. I went to the initial reincarnation of Soundset in 2008, and it’s one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. I also went in 2009, but I haven’t been back since because I wasn’t as enthused about the lineup as I had been in past years.

This year they have truly outdone themselves; I can’t even express how excited I am about this lineup. Some of the artists (just to name a few) include Atmosphere (as always), Aesop Rock, Evidence, Big K.R.I.T., Ghostface Killah & Raekwon, Danny Brown, DJ Premier, Kendrick Lamar, hometown heroes Audio Perm and more. Tickets will be on sale this Saturday, March 10th at 11AM, and I can assure you I will be picking up a VIP ticket stat. General admission is going to be $41, and VIP will be $90. I hope to see you all there!

Paid Dues 2012 Announced!

Posted in Concert Dates, News with tags , , , , , on Monday, January 23, 2012 by Tim Althaus

That’s right folks; The Paid Dues Festival has released their official lineup for the 2012 concert series. There are definitely some heavy hitters on this bill; those who attend can expect to see Wu-Tang Clan, Dilated Peoples, Kendrick Lamar and The Living Legends, just to name a few. The one thing that I love about festivals like Paid Dues and Rock The Bells is that they do a great job of highlighting acts on both coasts of the country. Even though I’m not huge on acts like Odd Future and Dipset, I would still love to make a trip out to California to see this epic bill of artists because honestly, Hip-Hop festivals are for the children.

Summer Camp Music Festival: A More Affordable Fun

Posted in Concert Dates, Music News, News with tags , , , on Saturday, January 21, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

This music festival happens in the backyard of the Midwest. It is located in Chillicothe, Illinois and takes place from May 25th-27th this year. Summer Camp offers you the 3-day camping festival at a very nice price. If you were fortunate enough to grab early bird passes or advanced early bird passes then you already know you got one hell of a deal. Tickets are priced at a nice cool price of $174.20 for the time being. They offer lay a way so you can take your time paying off your ticket to a great time. Join the pre-party on Thursday and it is a $33 add-on but this allows you into the grounds a day earlier to help you find your new front door.

Head over to the website and check out this years line-up.

Live @ The Warehouse in La Crosse Tonight…

Posted in Concert Dates with tags , , , , , , on Thursday, March 4, 2010 by Tim Althaus

This looks to be a promising show folks; I’m really kicking myself in the ass because I forgot to ask off of work for it, so now I’m stuck working (FML). Toki Wright is bringing his nationwide Black Belt Tour to La Crosse, and my boys Hyphon & Efftupp will be the opening acts; also, the young phenom Enable Mind will be doing his thing for the audience and opening. Toki also brought along Haziq Ali and Omaur Bliss who are joining him on the road for the tour. The Doors open at 7 tickets are only $7 at the door. If you are in the La Crosse area you probably want to check this show out. Trust me.

*Above I have links to all of the artist’s websites above, and below I have Hyphon & Efftupp’s mix Hurry Up & Wait Vol. 1.

Details Surrounding Brother Ali’s Us are Revealed

Posted in Concert Dates, Music News with tags , , , , , on Monday, July 27, 2009 by Tim Althaus

brotherali1Brother Ali already released the critically acclaimed Truth Is Here EP this year, and now he is gearing up to release his full length Us which is due out this fall. Ali isn’t usually known for large amounts of guest appearances on his albums, but on this outting we will see more than we usually do. Joining him on the mic will be Chuck D, Freeway, Joell Ortiz & Stokely Williams. There is no word yet on the production for the album, but knowing Ali’s traditional formula I’m guessing Ant will have a huge role in this one. Those 2 have never made a miss, always hits but I wouldn’t mind seeing Jake One adding some of his pristine production to the bill.

Brother Ali is touring with Evidence & Toki Wright this fall in support of the new album, as well as Evidence’s new album Cats & Dogs. You can follow me after the jump for the tour dates. Continue reading
