[CONCERT SERIES] Yellow Claw Conquers Space City

[CONCERT SERIES] Yellow Claw Conquers Space City

 

Our peeps in L.A. hit us and asked us to Drop in on Yellow Claw Saturday night in support of their sophomore effort Los Amsterdam. The mood was electric as we walked through the parking lot, and ran into a couple hundred fans buzzing with anticipation as they anxiously waited to get in the building. The heady performance was kicked off with a spectacular light show underscored by heart pounding, pulse quickening beats. Jim Aasgier and Nizzle masterfully controlled the crowd’s mood and energy as if it were an instrument in and of itself.  They artfully stoked the rising tide of excitement until it could no longer be contained and it erupted; unleashing  holy hell in Houston’s Stereo Live, leaving the crowd drenched in sweat and tingling as if released from the grip of gravity to be carried off into the weightlessness of space (city).

Los Amsterdam features the TOP 10 Billboard Dance Chart hit “Good Day (feat. DJ Snake + Elliphant).” LP also features collaborations with Juicy J, Quavo of Migos, Lil Debbie, Moski, Jonna Fraser, Rochelle, Tinie Tempah and Cesqeaux, and the pair have accumulated over 470+ million streams on Spotify and 415+ million plays on YouTube to date….as you can see, the show was lit🔥

[REVIEW] Curious About Kurios?

[REVIEW] Curious About Kurios?

 

Kurios is sexy enough for a hot new date, but fun and eye-catching enough for the entire family.

This is not your ordinary clowns coming out of tiny cars, large animals tamed by a whip, or white faced mimes clowning around kinda circus.

This show is sleek and tantalizing; delivering a dream-like glimpse into the inside of the Seeker’s (mad scientist) imagination. Through the Seeker’s exhaustive imaginings we’re able to see acrobats, gymnasts, contortionists, singers, jugglers and more go back and forth in time with a futuristic​ steam punk flair.

There is even a little person, Mini Lili, that lives inside of another character’s belly (Microcosmos)..

Would you think a finger show would keep your attention? Ha! Theater of hands will do just that. Multiple hands take us through a lifetime worth of events in minutes. The mini-dramas are projected onto a cloud.

I have to say my favorite performance is of the group of fish a.k.a female contortionist bending and twisting on a giant hand.

Each scene and performance is completely unexpected and delightfully unusual. You will definitely leave with an expanded imagination and tons to talk about. There was so much more to see, and we know you’re Kurios, but we won’t ruin it for you.

New Film “Grow House” is the “How High” of 2017

New Film “Grow House” is the “How High” of 2017

There’s a boom in medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Californian and the U.S. These facilities have reached record numbers, cropping up like Starbucks or McDonald’s. States across the nation are legalizing medical and recreational marijuana. Our two unlikely heroes, Darius (DeRay Davis – “EMPIRE”, “21 Jump Street”, “GI Joe”) and Pat (Lil Duval – “Scary Movie 5″,”Meet the Blacks”), figure they can help the medical marijuana movement, but mainly help themselves by trying to grow their own cannabis and selling their crop to the dispensaries. Only one problem, knowing how to smoke weed doesn’t mean you know how to grow weed.

After taking a trip to “Dr. Doobie” (Malcolm McDowell – “Entourage”, “The Mentalist”, “Home Alone”) to become legally certified pot growers, they gain access to a Bel Air mansion to use as a “grow house.” Although they convince Snoop Dogg (played as himself) to fund their operation, our heroes soon discover what can grow wrong, will go wrong in this comedy of errors.

 

Soundtrack Available on Priority Records. New single “The Bong Song”
