OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG IT WENT DOWN! LOL...
Man I have said it before and I'll say it again, this live band shit has to be the new movement for hip-hop. At least down here man. We are from a musical region, lets just be musical, and vibrant, and rockin' and shockin' and whatever, shit was off the chain. DJ Knowledge opened the show and spun records all night and I'ma say this, dude does not get enough credit. He is definitely in the upper echelons of the Austin DJ Community. Dude has some serious skills and can mix Tribe Called Quest with UGK and then play some funk. Dude is a killer on them decks! Black Mike came out and lyrically slayed everyone, and his band killed. Mojoe is one of the greatest live bands in hip-hop ever, and Bavu Blakes & the Extra Plairs is too.
I could go on and on and pontificate all sorts of things but real talk I know you'd rather just see the photos. Hopefully video coming soon.
IT WENT DOWN, as stated above.

T-Solo and KJ Hines, all these dudes I mean seriously. We had the realest gathering of Austin hip hop realness that I have seen in a while. But then again I don't get out much.
These good folks FLEW from Seattle to see this show cuz they are huge Mojoe fans. Was real cool to chop it up with them about their city and to see the excitement they had for the show! They came at like 9 p.m.! Word to them!
MOJOE IS THE REALEST!

And these dudes are total gems as well. Dude made it sound pretty perfect without a real soundcheck cuz everyone was late. He handled it so well and made it happen. THANK YOU and thanks to my dude Sean B as well for HOLDING IT DOWN EVERYTIME!
I'm amped, it's true. See you at Beauty Bar Saturday.
