The Master, the General, The Gatlin

Over two dozen live performances, twenty music videos, six albums, a diss track/diss video combo, and a partridge in a pear tree later, Greg King, aka The Gatlin had one hell of a 2018. The culmination of it all came with the last minute, final quarter surprise release of ...

Lauren Ruth Ward: The Old Soul of Valhalla

Lauren Ruth Ward: The Old Soul of Valhalla

Have you ever wished you were born in a different time? A different era? When I was a kid, (I won’t lie to you, even sometimes to this day) I used to dream about being around during the 60s. The times were tumultuous of course, and as a Latina woman it wouldn’t ...

Marsha Ambrosius is coming to bear her soul

Marsha Ambrosius is the shit, and more folks need to act like they know that. Alright, maybe I started that a LITTLE too aggressively. Let me try that again… Marsha Ambrosius is the shit, more folks need to act like they know that, but I forgive you for being unaware. ...

Rhye: 476 Shows Later, the music survives the label.

Rhye: 476 Shows Later, the music survives the label.

Coming to Sacramento tomorrow is the engimatically ambiguous singer/songwriter Rhye, and I think I am going to go and partake for a few different reasons: 1. Despite the nearly 500 shows Rhye has done in the last five years, I somehow have not managed to catch them live 2. ...

Lion Babe: If you don’t know them, you should.

Fuck I love Lion Babe. I was introduced to them through a playlist a former lover made for me — yes I said LOVER because I am 35 years old and it sounds just juvenile as hell to say “my ex boyfriend”. As I was saying, my former LOVER used to make me ...

Caleborate & Cash Campain — Sacramento’s Homecoming Kings

Caleborate & Cash Campain — Sacramento’s Homecoming Kings

Holy Diver has been open since late last year, but I confess I had never stepped foot into the place until last week. Not because I have some sort of vendetta against Holy Diver, quite the contrary. Brett, Eric and Anthony are all amazing folks who have worked in the ...

Sacramento Be Like… (Third Edition)

Sacramento Be Like… (Third Edition)

Hey kids! I had to take a break last week to spend a little time honoring the awesomeness that is Noise Pop. Last week I was able to immerse myself in a solid few days of hip hop that blew my mind, music that soothed my soul, and at one point during the week (see the Madlib ...
