Blaze N Glory Fest

12744317_451849284988589_5149061651703023709_n

On a sweltering late May Saturday, thousands descended on San Bernadino’s San Miguel Ampitheatre to spark up and listen to an assortment of dope reggae and rap acts. Entry lines were long but no one cared. The simultaneous laid back beach/carnival and “get hyped” vibes continued throughout the 420 friendly day and night. Amid the sweating, I checked out Dilated Peoples, Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds and Stephen Marley who threw in some songs from his father into the set. I also chatted with So Cal trio Radical Something about touring with Matisyahu and looking for love on reality TV. Connecting with Hirie who brought Hawaiian island flavor to the mainland and also covered TLC’s “Scrubs” during her set, I learned about her new album coming in August and chopped it up with Prof who I’d just seen crowd surf in a raft across thousands of people recently at Soundset. As the temps went down, I ended the fun night by venturing over to see Nasty Nas bring some classic Q-Boro to the West Side. “It ain’t hard to tell” everyone had a good time.

Art of Cool Fest

unspecified

Returning for its third year, The Art of Cool (AOC) Fest brought a diverse mix of jazz, R&B and hip-hop legends and rising stars to Bull City for a weekend takeover. Fans and media outlets came from North, South, East, West and even across the pond to take part in the festivities, raising the profile of the relatively new and prominent fest yet again. Covering AOC for a second year, we obtained access to chat with the likes of Terrace Martin, 9th Wonder, Rapsody, Chantae Cann, The Internet, Moonchild, Kamasi Washington, Donnie, Derrick Hodge and Terrance Blanchard about Grammy experiences, current albums, unforgettable stage and studio moments and upcoming projects in the pipeline. Most exciting above all was the performing artists we spoke with all confirmed they have full plates of new music on the horizon. After the busy days of conversing with AOC acts (Dark Water Rising, The Beast and Bashiri Asad were new and welcome finds), we rested up for the night shows at venues around Durham which featured Anderson.Paak, J Davey and Art of Turntables with Dres Da Beatnik, Rich Medina, Pete Rock and DJ Maseo from De La Soul (yeah, that happened, too). Def well worth the time and effort and look forward to 2017’s!
