Market Market is a shopping festival where rare archival pieces from the past 7-8 will be available for purchase. I went to the first Market Market and spent way too much money , but the experience was incredible. Seeing rare pieces dating back several years from all the CdG sub-lines was a pleasure all on it’s own. The fact that everything is 70% off or more is just icing on the cake. Do not miss this if you are in New York. The sale will be open to the public from May 10th to the 13th and will be located at 127 W 30th Street. This is guaranteed to be worthwhile pilgrimage for Comme devotees.

New York based White Gallery is playing a couple shows coming up. Through my friends in the band I’ve had the opportunity to preview tracks from their upcoming EP and I can’t wait to see them live for the first time. Their sound is difficult to describe but as soon as I heard ‘Twisted Summer’ for the first time, I knew this band was doing something special. White Gallery pays homage from pop music of the past but the band does not feel nostalgic. Brooding but also melodic, this is music you can make out to, dance to, or listen to with close friends on cross-country roadtrips.
On Monday, April 8th, White Gallery will be playing a show at Ella on Avenue A as part of a bill put together by Wax Poetics. If you can’t make it that show will also be web-streamed.
They will also be playing this Saturday with Light Asylum at Steel Drums (35 Beadel St Brooklyn) with DJ sets from from DJs Frankie Teardrop (Wierd), Jane Pain (Wierd), Ciarra Black, Teamphil.
I’ll be at both shows snapping photos and taking it all in. You can check out their music before hand on the band’s soundcloud.
Check this short teaser from the band.
Geng Grizzly and Mista Whoa
Ill Visuals in the DJ Booth
I took a couple snaps from the Devil Want My Soul Party DJed by none other than Geng Grizzly and Mista Whoa. Really incredible vibe and it was nice to get a room full of people who really knew rap, instead of people who just pretend to (you know who you are). It was one of the most memorable nights for me thus far this year. The ESPN Highlight of the Night was the performance by Atlanta’s own ‘Beautiful Pimp’ Rome Fortune.
Look out for another party with the camp soon. In other news I’ll be appearing on-air tomorrow night (Thursday, Mar 21) on Fresh Out the Box Radio. You can tune in on BBOX Radio. The show goes from 7:30 to 9:30PM and as always expect hijinks and great new rap.

It’s Sunday morning and there’s a good chance you’re hungover right now and the furthest thing on your mind is partying. That being said, you have plenty of time left to recover for this event. Third Looks is hosting the party, trap music is the soundtrack. Come listen to the homies Geng Grizzly and Mista Woah at the rare Cocktail Bodega location right in LES. All other pertinent details on the flyer.
Nothing sets the Holiday mood like open bar and Chinese restaurants. The snaps are from the VFILES Holiday party which took place on Monday night. It was tons of fun celebrating with everyone who works so hard behind the scenes to keep VFILES humming along.
These photos are from the opening of Poloroids by Deigo Uchitel at Milk Studios in New York. The show (which ended today) took place in conjunction with the release of a book of the same title. In the show you can see originals from his wall of Poloroid snaps taken over the years by Diego Uchitel featuring personalities such as River Pheonix, David Bowie, Grace Jones, Quentin Tartino and more. I’ve always loved Polaroids for their dream-like quality and feel of the printed image. You can find puchase archival prints of Diego’s work from the Milk Studios Store.
I felt lucky to be part of the 2012 Opening Ceremony Holiday party and see all these familiar faces. I’ve been friends with some of the staff since I first moved to New York and it brings me great pride to see everyone celebrating in the same room. Until the next one, enjoy these snaps of the event.
Many many more photos after the jump

Motherboard is basically a tech website about how the future is super scary but also potentially amazing. A good example of the site’s style is this recent post on drones. The site recently underwent a complete re-design and to celebrate VICE threw a party.
The party was at a pretty random location in the financial district. The real highlight of the night for me was to see Rza perform. After Large Professor got the crowd moving , Rza came in and shut it down. He put on a spirited set going through Wu classics such as Gravel Pit and ended off on ODB’s “Shimmy Shimmy Ya”. It was a fun night and it was great to see RZA poppin bottles on stage rocking the crowd with just a mic and a DJ.
