Well, this is fun.
We’re going to make history on February 18 at the Weinberg Center when Retro/Ricole Barnes takes the stage with his band, DaMood. How so? Well, it will be the first time live hip-hop has ever been performed on the Weinberg stage. Or, at least, so we’re told. And that’s pretty neat.
We’d also guess that live hip-hop has never been performed at the General Treaty Store in downtown Frederick … until now. Behold our third Playlist Presents session in anticipation of the upcoming Frederick Music Showcase Vol. 2. It features Retro/Ricole Barnes performing “Keep Calm and Blow Up” with members of his band, DaMood. There’s still time to win a limo ride to the event, so head over to the Weinberg’s website to grab some tickets! Note the enthusiasm.
And now, as we are contractually obligated to do, here’s this obligatory paragraph:
Check back next week to see … oh, we aren’t giving away that secret yet. Duh. You’ll have to wait to find out who’s next! As always, a huge thank you goes to the fabulous Graham Cullen, who rocks the video cameras like no other, and Bill Green, who stayed out way too late to help us get through the night. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t thank the fine people at Treaty General Store for allowing us to essentially rearrange their entire store, all in the name of rawk (with a “w”). Hopefully, they didn’t mind.
