Always a proud moment to see one of your own doing what they love, and loving what they do!  My godbrother Greg Paul Webster was featured with a USC instructor and Mentor Peter Erskine, for an advertisement for Samson Technologies Audio Equipment.  This advertisement was on the back cover of the August Issue of Downbeat Magazine, opposite the great Keith Jarrett.

Flagrant City: The @Do_Over LA [8.18.13]

So I’m new to this, sue me (late pass).  Just moved to LA 2 weeks ago, and my boys Deuce Ellis, DJ Tiger and Te’Amir (drummer for Aloe Blacc) checked out this event the weekend we touched down.  I didn’t go, as I was getting settled and acclimated in my new city, so I took a raincheck.  Unfortunately, I missed an awesome day of fun, rage, good music and great people.

So, to cure all things Do-Over, I will be attending this coming Sunday, with friends or by my DoLowe, whichever comes first.  This runs through the end of the summer and there are also shows in NYC and other cities throughout the US.

Tight work from Houston, TX native Raven Sorvino (who currently resides in Cali). Peeped this tight track over on my partner’s at JENESIS Magazine’s website.
