open mic at mama buzz, yeah! [Aug. 8th, 2007|12:43 pm]
SF Hiphop

hi everybody -

i'm putting together an open mic night at mama buzz cafe in oakland. it's going to be on thursday, september 13. the preliminary details are as follows:

signup at 6:30pm
show runs from 7-9pm
you can sign up for one or two 5-minute slots

all forms of sound-art are encouraged: spoken word, performance art, singer/songwriter, noise music, anything and everything - the only rule is that you must be CREATING something onstage. you can't just play a song that you recorded at home over the PA. you can, however, play the track and sing along with it if you'd like. just as long as you are using your body somehow on stage to create art for us. oh, and it can't be too loud. i love metal, but your metal band cannot come play at mama buzz. if you are unsure about whether or not your music is too loud, let me know and we will figure something out for you.

i am thinking about having a featured act play for 15-20 minutes around 8pm. if you are interested in being the featured act, please respond to this post with a little bit of information about yourself, what kind of music/art you like to perform, and why you are interested in being the feature. i will probably decide if there will be a feature and who it will be by the end of this month, and that will give you a couple of weeks to prepare.

i really want to start an open mic that is a little different than the ones i have been to. don't get me wrong, i love all the open mics that i go to (hotel utah, blake's, starry plough, missouri lounge, etc.), but i want to make this one more art-focused than song-focused. that doesn't mean you can't play a song, cuz that's what i will be doing. but, i want to give other types of sonic artists a space where they can come out and showcase their work as well.

i think that's about everything for now. please respond with questions, feedback, dirty jokes, etc.

also, let me know if you can think of a good name for the open mic, something a little more exciting than "mama buzz open mic." i am thinking "mic buzz: an aural art exchange." what do you think? suggestions?

I have an extra set of Technics SL-1200MK2 direct drive turntables that I have decided to let go of. I'd like to get $600 for the pair this weekend, but don't hesitate to make an offer. I will also consider selling them individually. I live near the Mission.

Hey there!

I'm calling all producers and music lovers and supporters of up and comming hip-hop artists. The objective of this community is in the form of getting producers, dj's and rappers to come collaberativley and communicate ideas on creating hip-hop music. I expect to have disscussions on scratch techniques, share vinyl digs, and have an extensive amount of helpful and constructive critiques on music that community members make. I greatly encourage participation and hope that the goal of homoginizing ideas and disscussions oh music production. Reviews of latest music made by well known artists are also acceptable, but I would like to have the mian focus on artistic expression of you, the artist. So please feel free to join and spark discussion on matter involving hiphop music production. I'm happy to start something of this calibur and hope that people will join and help prolong this endeavor with style.

So where's the best places in San Francisco to get some excellent hip-hop hoodies?

I'm looking for a hoodie that I saw the other day, it's the Subway sandwich logo, excpet it says "TheBay -- We Fresh" on it.
