Sliccs Gotcha- Off Da Chain
Just try getting this hook out of your head. With a few minor tweaks, "Off Da Chain," available as a free download at Sliccs Gotcha's MySpace, could break out of Kansas City to become a national hit. Additional material is available at Sliccs Gotcha's site. And this no budget video has a certain homemade charm.
I really shouldn't tease Sliccs Gotcha about his video; I didn't even bother editing the footage I shot at yesterday's Charlie Parker memorial service.
Bruce Springsteen reads There Stands the Glass! He fulfilled the request I made in the previous post by playing "4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)" last night. He last performed the song on July 15. It was one of only a handful of selections that really connected with me. The others were "Out In the Street," "Candy's Room" and "Devils & Dust." I love you, Bruce, but I'm kind of disappointed by last night's middling concert.
I caught Bernard Allison, Shemekia Copeland and Tommy Castro at the Roots Festival in Paola, Kansas, on Friday night. Here's my review.
