Danny Brown has created two specialty pizzas, Pitchfork points out. He was asked by fellow Detroit musician Matt Z, drummer of Tyvek, who's a chef at El Club and who designs new pizzas for charity in collaboration with other Michigan artists. Proceeds from the pies benefit InsideOut Detroit, an organization "for K-12 students in Detroit who are curious about exploring their worlds through the power of poetry."
The pizzas Danny created are: a "mystery meat" pie with liver and onions, and an "Easter Bunny" pizza with chocolate peanut butter and jelly beans. Sounds... yummy. They'll be available at El Club in April. See a picture of Danny with the pies here.
Danny also has a new video for "Ain't It Funny," one of the best songs on last year's Atrocity Exhibition. The video was directed by Jonah Hill, and it stars Gus Van Sant and Joanna Kerns. Watch below. That same song will come out as a picture disc on Record Store Day.
Danny's got shows of his own coming up too. He was already announced for day one of NYC's Governors Ball, and he's since added another NYC show happening sooner. It's a free Zumiez/Adidas-presented show on 4/20 at Webster Hall, dubbed 'Skate The Loft.' The show's also got Dave East, Nick Catchdubs and Sean Cee, plus appearances by Adidas athletes Mark Gonazales, Tyshawn Jones, and Nestor Judkins. RSVP is open now. Updated tour dates are listed below.
