Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

Supported by Snob Scrilla and DJ IZM.

Sans Flavor Flav, and they did just fucking fine without him.

The wait and constant delays were painful, and the hypeman saying the exact same things over and over got kind of annoying, but in the end, the show exceeding all of my high expectations. Chuck D and crew performed all of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back as well as everything you’d expect them to play (Without Flavor Flav of course).

Listen to this on some decent speakers pleeeease. It will make it better for all of us.

Jim Ward Quiet EP Tour

Supported by Like... Alaska and One Small Step for Landmines.

Direct quote from my tumblr:

When I saw Jim Ward earlier this year at the incredble shambles that was Soundwave on top of a hill at sun set, the only thing I could think of is that I will never see anything like this again, let alone Jim Ward without a band. 10 months later and he’s back for some reason and it’s awesome. He played all his Quiet EP songs, most of Sleepercar and 4 Sparta songs: Breaking the Broken, Collapse, Air and Without a Sound.

He had the mad shakes throughout the show though. Don’t quite know what that was about. If it was just nerves or if there’s something more to that, but it was odd to see.

The volume in this is extremely low, the mix on the night was already quiet and I recorded it at the time with minimal gain, I’ve already added way too much gain to it afterwards and don’t feel as if I could put more on it. Sorry but turn your speakers quite a bit up
