This Thursday at Lincoln Hall, Willy Joy & everyoneisfamous.com presents Just Desserts #11 with Drop the Lime along with Ghetto Division, Dark Wave Disco and DJ Just Desserts. Drop the Lime hails from New York City and is a member of Trouble & Bass. He also happens to be one of the best DJs around and is not to be missed! Hope to see you at Lincoln Hall this Thursday!
DVAS hails from Montorontreal (that's Montreal + Toronto), Canada. They are really great and you should probably check them out. You can check out the video above (vimeo), listen to some more music on their myspace, and then see them live at Just Desserts #10 at Lincoln Hall on Saturday, September 11th. So, now you know...
I haven't been hearing from Chicago's finest Cool Kids too much lately as they have been busy touring the world and recording with probably everyone in the hiphop world. That said, I just stumbled upon their new video for Gold Links. The song is top notch. Classic Cool Kids beat and lyrics. The video, on the other hand, while not bad could probably due with 50% less effects clutter. It's a simple video seemingly shot on one location in perhaps an hour, which is fine! Why do we need 2 days of post effects to make it look all crazy? I don't think we do. Oh well. It's still a solid production and most definitely worth a watch! (youtube)
When I'm in the mood for some upbeat rock, The Death Set is tops. I still remember my first experience with them a few years back at SXSW when they ended up throwing an amp into a pool and basically causing all-out pandemonium. They recently released a new video for a cover they did of Daedelus. It's pretty well done and totally animated. Check it out above. (vimeo)
We've got another Just Desserts coming up on Saturday, August 21st at Lincoln Hall (lineup to be released soon!). Originally, Juiceboxx was slated to perform but in the end it did not work out due to timing of schedule issues. I'm really bummed about it because he's so much fun live. As a small consolation, check out his recent video for the 100MPH song remixed by AC Slater. The video is my new favorite in a long line of solid Juiceboxxx music videos. (vimeo)
