The key to success is fire drops on MONDAY. We call it Monday Magic. For some, this is the start to a full fledged, excruciating work week and what better coping mechanism than listening to the world’s most well put together pieces of music. ‘The Midnight Society’ is yet another slick collaboration tape from Porky $cooP and super-producer Keyboard Kid. We featured this project on our Soundcloud and from there you’ll be able to peep more of their work. The twisted nostalgic artwork inspired by Courage, The Cowardly Dog has us screaming, “Stupid rappers! You make us look bad,” in our best Eustace voice. Celebrate the many Adventures of Porky $cooP! and KeyboardKid. #LocalLegends - b.
With the production help from Sango, that South Florida boy Denzel Curry drops another nitty-gritty statement joint hyping us up for his 2055: The ULT Experience tour landing in Seattle March 31st. Denzel is consistent with a positively raging energy that has you off your shit in public. I remember a time bumping Nostalgic 64 was the normal day-to-day ritual, now I’m feeling extra Nostalgic. Denzel’s last visit to The Crocodile was a wicked sold out mayhem shit-show of awesomeness. He’s a big fan of mosh pits. - b.
