The Cranberry Show recently got back from a trip to New York City, where they signed a management deal with a division of Violator Management. On the way through the city, they stopped at ThisIs50.com’s headquarters and shot this interview. Check out the ridiculous freestyles in this thing. Oh, and if you want to see them live, they’re at The Rave with Asher Roth tonight. Actually, in a few hours from now. I’ll see you there.

Denku is back at it, once again inside the Miramar… sort of. He performed at Stage Right (adjacent to the Miramar) as part of the Border Clash series, and well, this happened. Watch and try to keep up:
Last night was Grassroots’ 100th show at the Miramar Theatre. While I was in the building to see RockzSolid and Annie Mae’s set, I also was pretty eager to see Taiyamo Denku perform. He was scheduled to go on at 10, but didn’t get to actually go on until around 1 AM. I have to say that this was one of the most unorganized shows I’ve ever been to, and believe me I’ve been to my fair share of unorganized events (There was homemade pasta, though.) Denku was patient, as we endured a bill consisting of bellydancers, erotic poem/dance combinations, and a rap song about clean underwear, amongst several other grimace-worthy sets. And one lone guy awkwardly dancing without shoes through the Miramar. Denku killed it though. He blazed through 20 minutes of lyricism that was mostly, if not completely, freestyled. This was the end of his set: an acapella freestyle with some well deserved jabs. I’m glad I shot this performance, because more people than the 12 that stayed around until 1 AM need to see this.
For all of you who didn’t get to see Lupe at Marquette (or didn’t hear he was coming, or had class, or work, or go to a different school, or in the instance of one friend who will not be named had NEVER HEARD of Lupe), here’s a little snippet of what you missed. I um… borrowed this video from Xavier Ruffin’s blog, but please go visit XRCreative.com immediately after checking it out. I have the video of this on my phone, but Xavier’s is in HD, and much closer, considering the whole crowd got up after someone asked him to freestyle. I figured you would like this one better. Lupe treated the crowd to the intro for “Food & Liquor 2″ which is coming out… sometime after “Lasers”, due out March 8th.
Xavier is gonna have a full recap of the event up sometime later, so check out XRCreative.com in the near future to see all of Lupe’s discussion with the students at Marquette.
