Some Photos from Last Month's CMJ Show 

Hi friends,

Last month I played a showcase hosted by The Brink & DATA Touring at The303 here in NYC for CMJ.  It was a great night and Candice from The Brink put up a few photos from the night that I thought you all might enjoy.  November is shaping up to be a relatively quiet month, at least on the public side... December should see things kick up a notch or two.  Get ready. :)

See the photos below.  Photos by Austin Green.

Finding Fela, Finding Myself 


The other night I saw "Finding Fela", a documentary by Alex Gibney on the life of the late Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.  It's a good movie.  New fans get a basic introduction to his music and his place in history; those more familiar with his genius get access to great archival performance and interview footage plus new interviews with family, former managers, and contemporaries.  The filmmakers also spoke with Bill T. Jones, director and choreographer of the musical Fela! that was such a success on… Read more

Hope to see you there!

Ireland Trip 

This past week I travelled to Northern Ireland, splitting my time between Belfast (to attend a wedding) and St. John's Point in Donegal.  Both were lovely experiences.  Watching 2 friends get married, meeting all their friends and loving families, listening to all the speeches, singing with the band... The wedding was all kinds of fun.  Funny and sweet in all the right places, it was just about everything that one could hope for.  Then a drive (my first on the left hand side) across the country to Donegal… Read more

Last night I couldn't sleep. And whenever I managed to closed my eyes I kept having these weird & lucid dreams. Then I realized it. Change. The anxiety of starting a new life. @mattiesafer did it when he left The Rapture @princeterrence did it when he left Lit and became a dad @danceslife when he moved back to Philly and went platinum. Tonight will not only be a night I get to down with all of my friends but it will also be a study in courage. Tonight I will learn the best. With @goodpeoples by my side I will say goodbye to the house I built. I've done some pretty amazing things at The Flat and leave with no regrets. It'll do fine without me. So please stop by, this is my holiday party. Listen to some R&B and lets toast to what will be an amazing future. If you known me for more than 3 years you know exactly what I've gone through - from a barback to a manager - and I can't thank the universe enough. What was once a gamble is now @lapetitemortnyc and what was once a dream will now be our new home as we sign our lease in a couple of hours. So yeah we don't mourn loss we celebrate life. "Act accordingly" #PPP signed, The Luckiest Man Alive. XoxOJ.
