Free tix The Weeknd & Keyshia Cole- 12/18/12, Warfield, SF

KMEL HOLIDAY HOUSE OF SOUL

The Weeknd and Keyshia Cole

SOLD OUT

The Weeknd is the stage name of the Ethiopian, Toronto-based R&B singer Abel Tesfaye. The Weeknd gained popularity in March 2011 after releasing his first album, House of Balloons. Prior to working with producers Illangelo and Doc McKinney, the artist was previously associated with the production team The Noise.

From the beginning however,  The Weeknd has been supported by rapper Drake and his OVO crew. In fact, OVO crew member Oliver El-Khatib was the one who first played The Weeknd’s music to Drake, at which point he fell in love with the artist’s voice. Publicity created by Drake via his Twitter account ultimately led to The Weeknd’s initial popularity, and the singer has since exploded onto the music scene, having been featured in Rolling Stone magazine, MTV news, MuchMusic and more.

The Weeknd performed his first ever show at The Mod Club in Toronto on July 24, 2011. This is only the beginning for Abel. More info will be added as it comes. Until then, continue to support the XO gang… ’til we overdose.

2 Chainz Set To Begin The Second Leg Of His Sold Out “Based On A T.R.U Story” National Solo Tour

New York, NY – October 13, 2012 -There is no denying that 2 Chainz is the hottest rapper in Hip Hop music, today. After a meteoric rise rarely seen in music, he has safely secured his spot on the top. His style and impact is quickly changing the landscape of music and you can’t help but hear a rendition of his infectious “2 Chaaainz”, or “ Tru” when ever his name is mentioned. What makes it all the more impressive is that it isn’t just hype. “Based On A T.R.U Story”, his first solo project with his now label Def Jam, landed on the Billboard charts at Number 1 it’s first week and has sold close to 500,00 copies. 2 Chainz most recently performed at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards along side long time friend and collaborator, Lil’ Wayne, and stole the show. In addition to his performance at the VMAs, he also took the stage at the BET Hip Hop Awards while taking home 4 trophies.

As he gears up to embark upon the second leg of the tour, which begins in Jacksonville, FL on November 23st, 2 Chainz had this to say about the experience “I never get tired of seeing, vibing, and sharing experiences with my fans. It’s just me and them in an intimate setting, in a different city all over the country. We turn up and basically have a party in every city on stage. When the first half of the tour started the album had just dropped so I didn’t know what to expect. Now that the album has been number 1 in the country, and every city has been sold out, I feel like the people enjoy what I bring to the table.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, JULY 24, 2012 – After supporting Drake’s “Club Paradise” tour and Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” tour this summer, 2 Chainz will be embarking on his first headline national tour this fall entitled “Based on a T.R.U. Story Tour.” This tour will follow the highly anticipated solo debut album “Based on T.R.U. Story” is set to release on August 14th on Island Def Jam Records. The tour will kick off August 30th inNorfolk,Virginiawith stops includingWashingtonDC,Detroit,Chicago, and many more cities to be announced. The Atlanta MC states, “One of the things I enjoy the most about being an artist is the opportunity to get on the stage and give the fans everything they deserve. Everything they’ve come to expect from me. I’ve performed alongside some of the best in this business, but this time will be something special. This time it’s all me.” The road to more riches has only begun for 2 Chainz. After the release of the critically acclaimed mixtape, T.R.U. REALigion, which dropped in November 2011, 2 Chainz’s star began to rise at an astronomical rate. With the release of: “Spend It” and “Riot”, 2 Chainz immediately became the name and sound on everyone’s mixtape and radio station. With numerous features since 2011, it was then clear that he was going to be a force to be reckoned with. With the top charting single “No Lie” feat. Drake and recently released single “Birthday Song” feat. Kanye West this show will be sure to electrify.

The Godfather of Funk

George Clinton is the legendary and internationally renowned grandfather of funk and the founder of the Parliament-Funkadelic MOB, taking the sonic innovations of James Brown and Sly Stone to both outer space AND Neptune while selling millions of records and concert tickets in the process. Quiet as its kept, however, George Clinton’s initial approach to the ladies was crooning (when he wasn’t cutting hair) as the leader of a standup vocal group he formed in `55 called The Parliaments, emulating the doo wop and love songs that were popular when he was in diapers.

What is there left for the North Cackalackee-born grandfather of funk to do after five decades of rockin’ steady on the one? He can dip back to an era of sweet street corner soul that was his initial inspiration, take some folks back into time while blowing their minds.

Almost 70 years-young, George Clinton has several other projects in the hopper, including a salute to Motown and a solo album by longtime P-Funk All-Star siren Belita Woods. The master is also mindful that most of the folks whose songs he’s singing on Radio Friendly are no longer here, but he has no intention of joining them in Soul Heaven anytime soon. “I ain’t going nowhere,” he declares. “I feel like I’m starting over right now…for real!”

Maysa Video- “Flower Girl” ft. Dwele
http://youtu.be/-EoBxmNt1b8

While Maysa is no newcomer to the music scene, her ninth solo CD, Motions of Love (Shanachie Entertainment) that boasts cameos by the legendary Stevie Wonder and neo soul crooner Dwele, promises to introduce the veteran soul and smooth jazz vocalist to the widest audience of her career. She first gained fame as the featured voice on British acid jazz band Incognito’s defining `90s era hits such as “Don’t You Worry About A Thing,” “Still A Friend of Mine” and “Deep Waters.” She then launched a concurrent solo career with the hits “Am I Wrong (For Lovin’ You),”  “Friendly Pressure” and “Hypnotic Love.” With a sultry alto on par with Phyllis Hyman and Patti Austin’s honeyed notes, Maysa should be one of the biggest names in the urban mainstream but instead she’s earned a loyal underground audience.
