The Eulogy

Earlier this year, rapper Cakes Da Killa put out his full length debut, The Eulogy, which you can stream below and download for free at the Mishka bandcamp. He hails from the same NYC queer rap scene as Mykki Blanco and Le1f (who had their breakout moments last year), and while it's not necessarily fair or accurate to blindly group those rappers together, they do have musical similarities and as Cakes says in an interview with Pitchfork, "We're all cunty, we're all gay, and we're all really out" (referring to Le1f and Antonio of House of Ladosha, though he does say he's a big Mykki Blanco fan too).

(check out pics from LE1f's recent Knitting Factory show)

Like Mykki, Cakes' got don't-give-a-fuck bragging and relentless flow and waits only two lines on The Eulogy to show that off when he spits "Niggas pay my loans just to finger fuck my asshole." Lines like that (which appear all over the album) have earned Cakes descriptions like "pottymouthed," but is it really more pottymouthed than what a ton of heterosexual rappers talk about? Either way, Cakes does what any good rapper should do best. He talks about what he knows, he doesn't censor himself, he's funny, angry, and confident, and so far that all resulted in a hell of a record.

(check out pics from Mykki Blanco's recent BrooklynVegan SXSW showcase)

Cakes plays a previously discussed NYC show this Wednesday (3/27) at NYU's E&L Auditorium with a great lineup of Killer Mike and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire. Tickets are $2 for NYU students and $4 for the general public at the NYU box office, and they go on sale today (3/26) at noon.

Stream The Eulogy below...

Baby New Year

Love it or loathe it, New Year's Eve is coming. Here are some of this year's NYC concert options, of which there are many.

One of the biggest shows of the night is Coldplay and Jay-Z at Barclays Center. If you've seen pictures of Coldplay's tour this year, you know they have this bluetooth controlled, light-up wristbands that (no matter how you feel about their music) makes for a spectacular interactive experience. And certainly Jay-Z will throw a good party at his own house.

Jay-Z's pal Kanye West is doing a three-night run in Atlantic City right before NYE (12/28-30) at Revel. Tickets for those shows are still available.

Another hip hop option includes Nas at Radio City Music Hall that also features Elle Varner. Tickets are still available.

Azealia Banks is playing a black tie party on top of The Standard Hotel (aka Boom Boom Room). More info is at the facebook event. You can RSVP for tickets ($250 minimum) by emailing unifiedpromo@unifiedpromo.com.

Also in the biggest NYE show race there is also Phish's sold-out night at MSG, part of a four night run at the venue.

If jam bands are your thing, you might also want to catch The Disco Biscuits, who kick off their four-night run at Best Buy Theater tonight (12/26) and then play NYE at The Theatre at MSG (tickets).

Another jammy option is Gov't Mule's two-night run at Beacon Theatre (12/30-31). Tickets for both nights are on sale.

If you're more into dancing, RJD2 will be DJing at Gramercy Theater with Com Truise and Chrome Sparks; and Moby and many others will be DJing at an as-yet undisclosed location (tickets).

Pretty Lights is also doing two sold nights at Roseland Ballroom (12/30-31). Another dance option that you might want to avoid is Afrojack is playing two nights on Pier 94 (12/30-31), but it's worth mentioning that if you get there early on night 1, you can catch opening sets by Diplo and Rusko. Night 2 (aka NYE) is sold out but night 1 is still on sale.

Brooklyn dance party The Bunker is throwing an event at the 70 N 6 St loft (above Public Assembly) with John Roberts, Mike Parker, Bryan Kasenic, and Mike Servito. Tickets for that party are on sale now.

Downstairs at the actual Public Assembly, Gaze 4 Daze is throwing two queer parties. Room 1 has DJ sets by Rizzla, Sebastian, and D'Hana, along with Emcee Ryann Supamakenzi and host Cherlyn. In room 2, they've got MIchael Magnan, Amber Valentine, Telfar, Mursi Layne, host Helen Harris, and live performances by House of Ladosha, Cakes Da Killa, and Abdu Ali. $10 at the door gets you into both parties.

Brooklyn warehouse party group Rubulad is presenting "Party-Go-Round" in three separate secret Bushwick locations near the Jefferson L stop. There will be live music by Friend Roulette, Not Waving but Drowning, Viva, and more; dance parties with music by DJ Shakey, Ol' Stark, DJ Mojo, $mall ¢hange and more; a puppet show, a midnight champagne toast, and more. Admission is $20, the events start at 9 PM, and there will be a party bus to navigate between the three locations.

Matthew Dear and Superpitcher are at Le Bain (tix); Ian Pooley, Pat Mahoney and more at Cameo; Onra, Nick Catchdubs, and Samo Sound Boy are at Williamsburg's Villian (tickets).

Holy Ghost! and Midnight Magic are at Brooklyn Bowl (sold out) and after that, Holy Ghost!'s DFA labelmate Juan Maclean will DJ an afterparty at the same venue (tickets).

Chris Keating of Yeasayer is DJing a BangOn!NYC-presented party at a secret warehouse location in Williamsburg near the Montrose L stop with Felix Cartal, Chordashian, Alex English, Sean Glass, and many others. There will also be live music by Carousel, Suntalk, and more TBA, art installations, an inflatable obstacle course, food trucks, and more. Tickets (more info at that link) are on sale and RSVP is open. Location will be revealed with the purchase of tickets or an RSVP.

If you'd rather dance to classic soul and R&B, there's New York Night Train Annual Dusk Till Dawn New Year's Ball at Home Sweet Home featuring a live performance from Kid Congo and the K-Holes, plus Jonathan Toubin and a crew of DJs.

For the indie rock inclined, you could go see Titus Andronicus at Glasslands which is a pretty small venue for them these days. While So So Glos were originally on the bill for this, they have since dropped off. Dapwell, formerly of Das Racist, is your MC for the evening and tickets are still available.

Right next door at 285 Kent, Florida's (awesomely) mopey Merchandise will visit,  plus Blanche Blanche Blanche, Tonstartssbandht and "speciial guests" (note the two ii's is "speciial") will surely be a wild night. Dive in, tickets ($20) are on sale now.

After that, DJ Rashad, DJ Manny, Sasha Go Hard, and others will play an afterparty at 285 Kent (tickets).

Psychic Ills and Herb Craft are playing Saint Vitus. Tickets for that show are on sale.

Amanda Palmer will be at Terminal 5, playing Prince's Purple Rain in its entirety which will surely be a spectacle. She'll play a set of originals too. Tickets are still available.

If you'd like to party like it's 1929, Spirit Family Reunion are bringing the old time religion to Pianos. Tickets are still available, includes a champagne toast.

More rootsy options include The Punch Brothers and Michael Daves at Bowery Ballroom (sold out); and The Felice Brothers, Yellowbirds, and Mail the Horse at Mercury Lounge (sold out).

The Two Giants: Todd-O-Phonic Todd & Mono-O-Phonic Matt Porter." They get their name from being big San Francisco Giants fans, and they'll be spinning "some of the greatest soul, r'n'b, garage, rock'n'rol etc" all night. Admission is totally free, no cover.

My Morning Jacket is doing a sold out pre-New Year's Eve three-night run (12/27-29) at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester.

After that, Capitol Theatre will host Steve Miller Band on 12/30 (tickets) and funky METERS with Dumpstaphunk on NYE (tickets).

For some old school punk, Manitoba (the project of Dictators frontman Dick Manitoba) and Sylvain Sylvain (of New York Dolls) will play Bowery Electric with The A-Bones and Daddy Long Legs. Tickets for that show are on sale.

To keep the party going the next day, head to SOB's for Questlove's holiday party.

Whatever you end up doing, be safe!.

House of Ladosha (via)
House of Ladosha

Brooklyn duo House of Ladosha, who recently opened for Azealia Banks, have been around for some time but they've been buzzing a bit lately due to an increased attention to the "gay rap" (for lack of better words) scene, which has been the subject of many recent articles, most of which they are mentioned in, along with Mykki Blanco (who plays NYC this week) and the arguably more successful Le1f.

They have two upcoming local shows scheduled at the moment, including 285 Kent on August 25 with Triple Six Sound Club, Neuport, and P.O.L. Style and Santos Party House on September 20 with SSION, whose video for "FEELZ GOOD (4-EVR)," which you can watch below, features a cameo from House of Ladosha, and TEETH. The Santos show also doubles as SSION's album release party. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

House of Ladosha just dropped a new song called "Bel Ami" (ft. C-Breezy), which you can download above, or stream below with the SSION video and a list of all upcoming dates...

Mermaid Ball Flyer

As mentioned, Azealia Banks revealed on twitter that she will play a show at Bowery Ballroom on June 3 after playing Hot 97 Summer Jam earlier that day. Bowery Ballroom confirmed the show soon after, and now the full lineup for that show, billed as "Mermaid Ball," has been revealed. As seen in the picture above, it includes Maluca, Wckids, Tigga Calore, House of Ladosha, special guest Leiomy of Vogue Revolution, plus styling by Cuntmafia, narration by Jack Mizrahi, and host Roxy Cottontail. There will also be a $1,000 cash giveaway to the person with the best mermaid costume (should make up for those scalper prices).

Tickets go on sale today (5/24) at noon. Good luck.

Big Freedia, in one of the rare pics where azz ISN'T everywhere (more)
Big Freedia

"And then something remarkable happened. The crowd -- just about evenly divided between men and women -- instantly segregated itself: the men were propelled as if by a centrifuge toward the room's perimeters, and the dance floor, a platform raised just a step off the ground, was taken over entirely by women surrounding Freedia. The women did not dance with, or for, one another -- they danced for Freedia, and they did so in the most sexualized way imaginable, usually with their backs to her, bent over sharply at the waist, and bouncing their hips up and down as fast as humanly possible, if not slightly faster. Others assumed more of a push-up position, with their hands on the floor, in a signature dance whose name is sometimes helpfully shortened to "p-popping." " [NY Times Magazine]
Lower Queens and upper Brooklyn will BOTH feel the thunder on August 28th as Big Freedia will unleash a double shot of booty-clappin'. We already knew that PS1 would get a dose during the afternoon, but now Big Freedia and DJ Rusty Lazer have added a second show later that night at Coco66 with House of Ladosha, w/ Ghe20 Gothik DJ's Venus X & Brenmar.

The NYC dates will kick-off a larger tour that will last through the next couple weeks and continues with a sprinkling of dates that include FYF Fest in LA and Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin.

Big Freedia is currently streaming a bunch of tracks at myspace and her website, a good portion which are also streaming below. Those tracks, the show flyer, full Big Freedia tour dates, and some (NSFW?) video is below...
