A little something from your boy E
August 7, 2010
I’m back just in time for E’s song of the last several weeks (as Steve might call it). My girlfriend works as publicist and one of her clients is Heineken (awesome, I know). She hooked us up with free vip passes to the Grammy Block Party in Santa Monica benefiting relief for musicians displaced by the floods in Nashville. It was a great time with dope free food (some of which was provided by Stefan from Top Chef season 5) and some nice free booze (Heineken, of course, but also Ludacris’ new cognac, Conjure). The best part, however, was the dope live music, culminating with a great little set by former Tony Toni Tone member Raphael Saadiq. The back-up singers were also the fucking bomb!! It was extremely entertaining and my girl left the event a fully converted Saadiq fan. Now you lucky people get to share in the fun. I thought I’d give you a little taste of his live work (with what looks like the same back-up singers who rocked). Today’s jam: Raphael Saadiq – Dance Tonight, Ask of You and Love That Girl. Enjoy….
