Busy busy. Good things. Can’t go wrong with Felix Da Housecat.
It was an awesome time. Wallpaper. rocked the house and so did Chiddy Bang. We bounced before hearing Swizz Beatz, but before doing so got to meet Pitbull, which was pretty awesome in and of itself. He’s a fun, energetic gentleman. Video clips from the show are forthcoming (once they’re done rendering). The VMA’s on Sunday 8/28 should be spectacular given what we witnessed earlier.
As a bonus, before the clips get added, here’s a spoof Pitbull did of The King’s Speech that you should check out:

We had a lot of fun last week going out to see a B.E.A.R. showcase at Jimmy’s Lounge in Hollywood. We didn’t get to see the whole show, but everything we heard was great. Would you expect any less from The Briefcase Rockers though? The crowd was an interesting mix at the show and the music that B.E.A.R. pushes is unique. We said it before and we’ll say it again: everything we’ve heard from The Briefcase Rockers is music worth listening to.
We got six video clips of the show (after the photos), two of Juan Huevos–who came all the way from North Carolina to make it out to the show–and four of ERAs. It was too bad that we couldn’t get more, but that’s all spilled milk now.
On Juan Huevos, we think he is a dope live MC and his performance was get-up and kept the crowd locked-in. Bringing a cover of Avril Lavigne, and getting half-naked towards the end of his show, it’s a performance we’ll never forget. However, we like Juan Huevos’ flows and instrumentals and find his style exciting even without the show and dance. Huevos’ is upbeat and different. Good things.
People like a good show, but if there’s not substance to the music, you could put on the best show in the hottest venue out there and it would be like eating a burnt grilled cheese sandwich at a five star restaurant.
Nathaniel Eras, or ERAS, really rocked out as well. Twiddling knobs and having fun while he played, things stayed engaging. Even though more abstract, glitchier music and melodies are more of an acquired taste, if you spend much time on the site you’ve probably noticed that we love experimental music in general and especially where technology and music meet. ERAS had a high-tech gadget-driven sound that we always enjoy hearing like sipping on a unique-flavored foreign drink.
At any rate, the show was hot. The videos are a bit dark and aren’t the best representation of what the show was like, especially since we didn’t manage to record all of the artists that performed, but that’s why you have to go out to these events for yourselves. We look forward to future shows from B.E.A.R.: rock, rock on.
We decided to take a drive down to Compton, Los Angeles today to listen to the new car audio system. Tracks listened to included those of Flying Lotus and those we produced personally at Hollywood studios. If you’re wondering about the camera shakiness, that’s because the video was made using an iPhone 3g in a moving car. Do the math.
