Emboldened by a raise in profile from the recent documentary, A Band Called Death, they were more of a classic rock beast. Extended rum solos, odd time changes. They were strong, and the mix was overwhelmingly crunchy. There were even times, like when performing their 1975 song "You're a Prisoner" , when it struck me that you could shift the emphasis slightly, swap out the guitar tones for something more expensive and add some gross 30-piece drum set, and they might be playing a Metallica song! Or at least what Metallica songs I remember from being 12 were like. "You can't run! You can't hide! YOU'RE! LOCKED! INSIDE! (riff riff riff riff riff). I mean, right? [L Mag]
While the VMAs were happening in a different park of Brooklyn, the two-day, free annual Afro-Punk Festival wrapped up in Fort Greene's Commodore Barry Park on Sunday (8/25). The second day gave us sets from legendary punks Death, Chuck D & DJ Lord (performing Public Enemy's Fear of a Black Planet), Danny Brown, Questlove, Trash Talk, Big Freedia, K-Os, Living Colour, The Coup, and more.

Pictures of the second day are in this post, and there's even more at Facebook and Google+. Plus, there's more of Trash Talk HERE and Big Freedia HERE. If you haven't checked out our day 1 pictures yet, those are up too.

Danny Brown, whose new album OLD comes out on 9/30, can be seen for free in NYC again at Williamsburg Park on Labor Day (9/2) for Fool's Gold Day Off, which also includes Run the Jewels, Migos, A$AP Ferg, World's Fair, and more (RSVP).

So many fashion faux-pas... but I guess that's what makes it entertaining.

There is more white guilt there than you could shake a noose at.

Chuck D & DJ Lord didn't do Fear of a Black Planet. He said "Public Enemy does Fear of a Black Planet" and introduced themselves as "Too Much Posse" and "elements of Public Enemy."

Blacks never lost the Blues or Jazz in the sense it was taken from us. It's more that Blacks tend to move on to new things. Blacks have a history of creating music then moving on to something new. So it's not that Blacks lost the Blues it's more that we moved on to other styles(soul,funk,rap,DC GoGo etc).

yea, but I guess that's what makes it entertaining.Thanks you!
