Hip-hop Live Shows

I love a well done hip-hop concert. The fresh music, the palpable energy, the connection with other fans who are singing along, dancing along, bobbing their heads along with you in unison. Going to New York hip-hop clubs has introduced me to artists I have not known, and made me have less respect for artists I used to be a fan of.

But I don't just critisize. My hip-hop group has also been known to rock a party a little something-something.

See?

I'm the gully negro in the middle sporting the striped shirt.

Jay must share the same love I have. He just updated his events section and added a slew of tours from 8 groups. He's asking for artists to contact him with more dates, but before he gets into the event listing business I suggest maybe he invests in some content management software like the calendar script that Black Inq uses.

For New Yorkers like me, you can find the latest neighborhood hip-hop shows at these fine websites:

1. Gotham Soul- my personal favorite and the best designed site on this list. Even has a blog....kind of.

2. Plugaction- probably the most well-known and updated of the bunch

3. Shredded Melody- hey, this site has seriously gotten better since I first looked at it. I'll add it to my weekly must-peeps.

4. Partyzone- all of the sites I mentioned do a horrible job covering shows outside of Manhattan. This site fills in the gap.

Dang, that's a lot of linkage in this post.

Holleration

Is it me... or are those two guys in front having a little trouble with their handshake? Though maybe that is the new style. Out west, we can be a little slow picking up on new trends.
