Whuttup, Whuttup, Whuttup!!! So this Valentines Day I have a slew of great things for you to check out (New S&S Podcast, Valentines Archive from TODAY) along with my usual recycle of Adam’s World Blog, with this one being about the closing of a great NYC Hip-Hop staple event A MONTHLY BONDFIRE…sadly my usual V-day mix will be up a bit later this week, but it is going to BANG. Let’s get down to brass tax shall we?
Recorded in early December, I was waiting for this day to unleash the hilarity and sadness of what we did here…ALL UNRELEASED EXCLUSIVES from HW’s upcoming album ‘Wallpaper Exit Wounds’ plus a special live track that was written that day! Can it get better? Well yes, if you have a date and someone to share the podcast with, but hey sometimes life don’t cut that way…C’est La Vie.

Had a rare chance to be on-air for Valentine’s Day and FUNraising…how could the stars have aligned like this? Well they did and a great show was done of all songs I feel express to true nature of love which is a painful (beautifully so) event no matter how you dice it. Take a listen and ENJOY!!!
For nearly half a decade Bondfire has been providing unforgettable moments, and a great proving ground, for music fans and artists alike, every last Tuesday of the month at the Bowery Poetry Club in NYC. The event, however, is going to end its four and a half year run on February 28th.
Much more than just another NYC open mic, Bondfire has been a unique artist-driven community, and its stage has witnessed the growth of many talented acts. Artists including Tah Phrum Duh Bush, iAreConscious, and PremRock went from rocking the Bondfire stage to touring overseas. Homeboy Sandman went from the Bondfire stage to signing a deal with Stones Throw Records. Countless other artists saw their YouTube views go from the hundreds to the thousands. There was the night the legendary Kool Herc came through to enjoy the show and give words of encouragement. The Bondfire community also came together when a non-regular swiped co-host Tasty Keish’s laptop, raising the money to get her a new one. This is why, even though it was billed as an open mic (or, in Bondfire terminology, a “mic open”) with main event acts, emcee Warren Britt, who has been a mainstay at the show, has another way to describe Bondfire – “it was family.” To read the whole article visit Adam’s World Blog…
