Everyday, more cool stuff happens than I can even write about. Like, for instance yesterday afternoon I met Steve of the Rising Sun All Stars hip hop collective on the train. He was an earnest guy who told me about the studio they’re building and their show that night.
I told him about Seattle hip hop group Shabazz Palaces and their awesome new album Black Up (I’m going to spread the gospel) and said I’d maybe come to his show after my “friend date”. Well, a couple hours into the friend date and I randomly run into Steve on the street! We go see his show (after astoundingly insane opener The Black Fires, pictured above) the All Stars came on and rocked the stage. It was a perfect end to a perfect day.
