Don Ho - Mele Kalikimaka (IAMXL Mix)

I hate Christmas music. In fact, I've been lamenting it outright for the past few weeks. Don't believe a beast? Case in point right here. I will however...


Mele kalikimaka


...get the hell down to this mix from my buddy IAMXL.




Juke-le Bells, y'all.

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals Celebrate Halloween With Costumes and a Cover

Getting in the spirit of the holiday season, Vermont-bred badass singer, songwriter and strummer, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, took to the Exit/In stage in Nashville on Halloween. Complete in country regalia (from l-r in the below image they are Billy Ray Cyrus, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings), the band played to a sold out crowd and Potter even led the troupe in a solid cover of Parton's Jolene.


Grace costumes


Keeping in fine tradition as they do at most every live show, GPN wowed the crowd with their rendition of the classic country cut, which you can watch below.


Additionally, check out this clip of Grace and Co. live from the Artists Den earlier this summer in NYC's Bryant Park, as they perform the rousing and instant classic, Paris (Ooh La La).


One of my favorite covers of theirs after the video. Sweeeeet emooooootion!

Once again, this takes your concert experience beyond what you're used to.

Happy Dre Day!

45 years ago, Andre Romelle Young was born, later to be known and adored as a premier hip-hop producer and emcee. Dr. Dre celebrates his birthday on February 18, and with it, parties, bottles and beats are popping in his honor.


The FADER puts it much better than I can. So here's some of their words, followed by a rad video and then, naturally, a track of my choosing.


Every year on Dr. Dre’s birthday, a roving ensemble of Dre devotees celebrates DRE DAY, playing only Dre-related tracks and hailing the most amazing g-funk producer of all time. It’s as close as you’re ever—ever—gonna get to hearing Detox, so if you care about dude at all in the least (if you don’t you are tripping), you should probably hit this party up at the Music Hall of Williamsburg this Thursday, starring DJs Nick Hook, Project Matt, Rok 1, Egg Foo Young and Cosmo Baker, plus host Dances With White Girls.
