Re: “Stargazers seeks new home

Stargazers... Some how I do not think that property is worth 2 Million. Certainly not for use as a concert venue. The sound is terrible there. It being the building or Stargazers owners lack of audio engineering knowledge. Don't we already have a venue with a recording studio? A larger and more intimate venue??? Can you have both? If they have not been able to fix the sound problem in the last 5 years do you think they have the know how of running a Recording Studio or teach classes? The building itself is a landmark here in the springs and would be a good musical performing venue with the right owners that understand Audio. In my opinion it has never been a premiere venue due to the sound quality. Good luck to the owners.... but 2 million way out of line...

Re: “Stargazers seeks new home

"...we are looking for a larger space where we can incorporate a larger venue of 1000 to 1500 seats and a small and more intimate venue..."

This sort of show venue should be included in the City 4 Champions. Just saying..

Re: “Stargazers seeks new home

Don't forget, A-dub started with FILTH INDUSTRY in 1998!! As the singer, I can say that we had a great time together, and definitely miss those days! You are loved, and will be missed, A-dub. Thanks for all the memories.

Re: “A Black Day: Local emcees form a Springs supergroup

Cocain Richard: It was a shot at P. It didn't say at shows he promotes. Saying he is more mainstream then underground. Actually I just play there music. I don't know what they are going to perform. If they want to lip sync then they can. That's up to them. I always can tell when they do and yeah it is wack when ppl just lip sync. Even if you perform over your CD who cares? That's how that person feels comfortable performing. Many lose their voice and have the vocals on the track help them save their voice a bit. Either way its up to them how they want to perform. P brings a lot of talent to Colorado Springs and puts on a lot of local acts from all over southern CO on shows. If it wasn't for him artists wouldn't have a place to showcase their talents or just do something they love. No one I actually have DJed for has ever lip synced. Some have used their vocals on a few or a lot of songs but they are all performing. Plus it is always better when doing a big show that you have some vocals on a track because honestly the sound guys don't care about support acts on shows. They focus on just the headliners unless they know the artist.

Re: “A Black Day: Local emcees form a Springs supergroup

Black P promotes shows where it is openly acceptable to rap over lyrics. He is not being accused of lip sync'n in the article. However, I have seen people Dj Shevy Dj'd for at union station lip sync their butts off for paying customers at a Black P promoted show... the point being made is that in one local scene it is not acceptable to play an entire CD with vocals and perform on top of it, and in the other led by one Black P the promoter IT IS ACCEPTED..

Re: “A Black Day: Local emcees form a Springs supergroup

Black P actually doesn't use his vocals on every track. Some on the hook and only 2 songs. One song he jumps in the crowd and the other is a song he is featured on. Either way he is actually performing ALL his songs. He isn't lip syncing at all, not one bit. When he performs you hear his voice over the tracks that may have vocals or back up vocals. If you can't tell its 100% him on stage then he must have that much stamina or you just aren't listening. I support all local acts and talent. I have been in the seen for few years now and respect everyone who goes after a dream. I know Black P is actually rapping because I have ALL his show cuts on my laptop, I am his DJ. I have been his DJ since the Brass Knuckle King album. I have DJed for most of the Hip-Hop acts in Colorado Springs, Denver, Foco and other parts of the state and I have heard artists that really do lip sync and just act like they are rapping. Black P, on the other hand, is most defiantly not faking his performance. The ReMINDers use their voices 100% as well. I know they weren't included in that but just in case people questioned their performances. I have DJed for them several times and you can't fake their performance. To me, Black P and The ReMINDers are the leaders of southern CO Hip-Hop and their track records prove it. Bottom line is Black P doesn't lip sync or use vocals on every track. He grew up on performing the lyrics word for word over the beat. He is 100% performing EVERY track on stage with or without back up vocals. Go to a show and see for yourself.

@siggie Go to his show. I just went last night and there was just great music. There's no need to miss out because of that fear. If you love the guy, go listen to him.

Re: “Everlast explores the life acoustic

I don't expect him to come out with a new album soon, he just released Life Acoustic and it is great. But when Everlast does release something new I'll buy it. I didn't care for La Coka Nostra but glad to see Everlast is doing hip hop still.

Re: “Playing Around: Xiren

LOL this Daryl Kenny aka Xiren created such a mess in Goa and lived it up in 5 star hotels in India paid for by Oliver Sean and W.O.A International and this Xiren is now running down the name of Oliver Sean??? Is he out of his mind??? Karma is a bitch and Xiren now has to support himself giving 'Yoga' classes and BUYING Cyber PR packages and creating stories that associate him with Oliver Sean and W.O.A International just so he gets some publicity. Sick! Read this guys http://oliversean.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/beware-of-xiren-the-real-con-man-and-fraud/

Re: “Hip-hop summits and back porch angst

You forgot to mention the fact that the Wandering Monks have a LIVE BAND backing them up. They not only are hitting that stage with an abundance of truth and flow, but they also bring a Guitarist (he's sick!), a bassist (mystery mask wearing phenom), a drummer (you can just call him McNasty), and a keyboardist (who's not only silky sexy on keys but rocks a trumpet and whatever other instruments he can get his hands on).

Though you could sit and really get an education from the content behind the lyrics, you can also get up and shake ya tail feather to the solid groove this group lays down. You'll want to catch this show so you can say "I saw them when they were just coming up in Colorado"... See them now while they're still doing the local shows!
