Entropy on Electric Boogaloo Tonight!!

So much for advanced notice on this, but if you’ve been listening to the show, you know that Atlanta’s own Entropy will be sitting in the show tonight. We got to hear some of their new album (which you can listen to live online at their website, linked above), Crawl, last week, and we should definitely hear more of that – plus talk about their upcoming shows. These dates include their Atlanta CD Release show coming up Saturday, Feb. 24 at The Loft. And (I don’t want to jump the gun here, but) I think we’ll have some passes to give away for that show and possibly a CD giveaway as well.

So check us out. We’ll be rappin about funk and other things, I’m sure. And playing plenty of funk. 11pm – Thursdays – 91.1 FM WREK Atlanta – and streaming at WREK.org

Cadillac Jones to Play Live @ WREK

Local groove merchants and friends of the Boogaloo, Cadillac Jones, will be performing Live at WREK on Tuesday, February 20. Live at WREK (L@W) is a weekly show (airing Tues, 10pm on 91.1 FM in Atlanta or here) which features a live band playing in the GT Student Center. The show was formerly aired from the WREK studio, but the move to a new studio came with a direct hook up to the stage in the Student Center, so we took it.

Cadillac Jones, of course, are longtime friends of our program so we’ll give them all the pub we can. Check out their site for mp3s, photos, and news about upcoming shows and releases.

Playlist for 2-1-07

I’m not posting a What’s up with what’s going down this week, as not much has changed from the one posted last week. Except, that I forgot to mention that Soulive is playing the Ga. Theatre out in Athens this Friday, Feb. 2.

Flying solo tonight, hopefully next week Nasty Chris will bring the funk that she didn’t get to play last week. Now I’m confused.
