I’m going to go shoot myself for using the word “twerk.” While I do that, enjoy some photos of the super gorgeous Iggy Azalea performing her first of 2 sold out shows at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on June 16, 2013. MTV wrote a review of the show, so I am calling in sick for this one!
On June 16, 2013, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea took over New York’s Bowery Ballroom with the first of 2 sold out shows. More photos will be coming later, so stay tuned. But for now, check out the beautiful Iggy with a little help from her friends – T.I. and Trae The Truth. Iggy’s got one more show at Bowery Ballroom tonight (June 17, 2013), so check out this video and if it’s your ‘thing,’ make sure you get a ticket!
Funkateers! If you live in New York, Minneapolis or Chicago, you are in luck. One of the funkiest bands of the 80s (and still going strong), fDeluxe, have announced 3 shows in August 2013:
August 21, 2013 at City Winery in New York
August 22, 2013 at City Winery in Chicago
August 23, 2013 at Dakota in Minneapolis
If you don’t know the music of fDeluxe, let me tell you a few things: their saxophone player Eric Leeds is arguably the best sax man alive and is responsible for so many of the funkiest moments on Prince’s late 80s output; 20 years later, the band is still incredibly funky; there’s a 99% chance you’ll hear “The Screams of Passion” and “Mutiny” performed live, which are two of the hidden gems of the 80s and if that’s not enough, they sang the original version of the classic song “Nothing Compares 2 U,” for crying out loud!
I love Eve! On a hot summer New York night, I met the rapper/actress and she was really nice. I wish I would have gotten a photo of her shoes, because they were wicked! It’s not my only regret of the night. Eve has worked with Prince before and I didn’t even think about asking her about that experience. They collaborated on one of the last “classic” Prince tracks, “Hot Wit U,” which spawned a bunch of officially unreleased (but bootlegged) remixes, all of which are excellent, as well as the song “The Greatest Romance Ever Sold.” Next time! But thanks again to Eve for being super cool and for signing my cds!
