Why do you love hip hop so much and what does hip hop mean to you?

Le Sous Marin:  it's the music I've listened to since I was a kid, my cousin made ​​me listen to my first rap song, I liked it immediately! I remember De La Soul, Heavy D ... then in the years that followed, Bone Thugs, Nas and 2pac. To me, hip hop is foremost the music of protest, the message, the rage and also, musically, I liked drums and rhythm right away.

Dan Croll @ 191 Toole

Club Congress

191 Toole's dim, intimate warehouse is known for hosting some pretty obscure indie outfits for Tucson's music lovers, but on this Friday it was brought to life by the alt-pop talents of Dan Croll and Panama Wedding. It was both bands' first ever stops in Tucson and the second-to-last night of their national tour, and the small crowd welcomed them with lots of applause and dancing feet.

Panama Wedding's Peter Kirk, interviewed by Tatum Schranz

This past Friday at 191 Toole I caught up with Peter Kirk, frontman of budding indie outfit Panama Wedding. The band opened for Dan Croll (full concert review here!) and hung out at the merch table after their set, which is where I was able to find out more about Panama Wedding’s start, what’s in store for the future, and some pretty interesting connections they have in the business.

1st ANNUAL WILD WILD WEST FEST

ART, MUSIC, SUSTAINABILITY

 

Two weeks ago Tucson’s 8 Minutes to Burn (reggae/funk/world fusion/jam band) hosted the first annual Wild Wild West Fest, the newest live music, arts and sustainability festival in the Southwest. The three-day fest kicked off Friday April 25th, and though the turn out this year was small, the spirit was high.

The electrofunk duo, Chromeo, performed April 19th at The Marquee in Tempe, Arizona. Tokimonsta, the American electronic music producer and DJ, opened up the show for Chromeo Saturday night. Her performance was captivating, but did not resemble her typical sound. I attribute this to the fact that she was opening for a more mainstream artist. My personal favorite track of Tokimonsta is Darkest (Dim), but unfortunately she did not play it on Saturday. Her set mostly revolved around her newest album titled Half Shadows, which I recommend you check out.
