Sailor Pick | Week Transmission

I feel like I'm being tricked. This weather is getting cray-ons on me and shit.
GORGEOUS and completely unexpected. But maybe it's gearing me up for London next weekend.

Anyway, since I'm still here there are some events you MUST GO TO.

Tomorrow, Jacksonville rapper now based out of Mini Apples is in town. And you know how big of a fan I am of Mini Apples rappers. Astronautalis is hitting Mohawk with a full band, for the first time in this city, so everyone should be there!

tickets still available here

and if you haven't picked up This Is Our Science, his latest, stop what you are doing, drive to Cheapos/Backspin/end of an Ear/waterloo and PICK UP THAT MOTHERFUCKING RECORD.

Then you can hit up Cheer UP Charlies for their doo wop ladies event benefiting Out Youth, an organization which serves the Central Texas LGBTQIA youth and their allies with programs and services to ensure these promising young people develop into happy, healthy, successful adults.” There is a $2 suggested donation at the door

Good cause + gorgeous women providing gorgeous tunes. yes/yes.

Yasiin Bay's partner in crime ala Blackstar is hitting Mohawk.
Talib Kwali and G Eazy [nawlins property] are bringing it.

Friday is also Peligrosa. Bring your best grito to Scoot Inn for that action!

Then the comeback event from our favorite LCD cover band at The ND

then Saturday is an all day event that everyone should par take in.
Balcones Burner Bash
This was such an awesome event last year. Writers, hip hop, bboys, beer, and tons of great people.

Info at the link.

and with this cooler weather, I won't be such a cunt.

See you kids out there on the boozepartytrain!

Sailor Pick | Keep It Breezy

Say goodbye to summer, girl. The cool breeze is moving in and so is the strict desire to punch everyone in the face. YOU'RE WELCOME, BOO

Like always there's tons of shit going and I hope you are reading up on it, because I'm not posting that shit. It's not shit, but after the 3rd or 4th blog posts redundancy waves it's red flag and then the fists start swinging. 

So here I am posting about tunes that I think are worth checking out. 

First off, I am a huge fan of 8tracks mainly because it goes off of soundcloud and that's where all the good shit is at. So I made a mix, JUST FOR ALL OF YOU!! 

Big up Abjekt for shining the light on some of my new favorites from the UK.

Next up, an AMAZING track for J.Timberlake PROVING he needs to make another fucking album. Girls need orgasms too!

Big up Kyle for the linkage.
[ok, i promise i won't "big up" for the rest of this blog. I just became annoyed with myself from it. ]

XLR8R just threw out their top downloads for September. Definitely worth a gander/dl
That dashing frenchman, Onra, is topping that list. So check it out here

Look out on Oct 11th for Boiler Room tv. They are welcoming the Radiohead Takeover for #69

THOM YORKE, JAMIE XX, CARIBOU, LONE & ILLUM SPHERE will be dropping beats and those radiohead remixed tracks LIVE ON AIR
Details here and remember the time zone difference. 8pm London = 2pm Central time.
In the mean time you can check out the remixes via Hype Machine

Last but definitely most important. Dessa, ruling female of the Doomtree crew, released her lastest album today. Castor The Twin. Taking previously recorded tracks and rearranging them with a live band. Plus a new track added. She's amazing and we should all venture to buy the album TODAY [to get her up the charts and shit. Well deserved.] SO GO DO THAT NOW, PLSKTHX!

If you had any doubts then you must not know me, boo. If that is the case, check out her Beekeeper track below.

Now go and drink some vodka for National vodka Day [titos preferred] and eat a GODDAMN TACO for national taco day. It's heaven up in this bitch.
