For today’s edition of BBR, I’m picking my new copy of Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled album. I received this record as a birthday gift last week, and I just can’t stop looking at it.
This vinyl edition marks the 20th Anniversary of the initial album release. As many RATM fans know, the album cover for this release features the historical photograph of the self-immolation of Thich Quang Durc. However, this new XX edition of the album features the image on the vinyl itself.
So because it is Earth Day and because people need a real swift kick in the ass when it comes to caring for our planet, I’ve chosen this album. I hope it lights a fire in you today.
Tonight we’re in Brooklyn, NY at the Brooklyn Bowl opening for folks rockers Cabinet! Show starts at 8pm.
See y’all there. ~Boots.
It’s going down tonight in D.C. at Gypsy Sally’s! 4 piece Brooklyn-based Roosevelt Dime starts the show at 8:30 then Dirty Bourbon closes out the night at 10pm. Tix are $15 at the door, or $12 at the above link. Come get some!
Where Brooklyn At?!?!
I gotta say, as far as big metropolitan cities go, this place is Beautiful! In a way it reminds me of home – a crazy mix of cultures, excellent food, great music, fun people, and lots of pride. That’s what I love most – people here take pride in the city. To me, that speaks loudest!
Here’s a small playlist dedicated to my other favorite big city – BROOKLYN!!
The Beastie Boys- No Sleep till Brooklyn
Youngblood Brass Band – Brooklyn
Gang Starr – The Place We Dwell
Yasiin Bey (aka. Mos Def) – Brooklyn
Yours truly will be hitting with full force tonight as we take the stage at the famous Brooklyn Bowl. Starting it off is Nashville’s Cataline Crime, followed by Charleston favorites Dangermuffin. Then it’s Bourbon Dirty till 11:30. See y’all there!

New Grass Country Club, friends of ours, are releasing their debut album April 9th @ Cafe Prytania (Wine & Spirits)! It is entitled Join The Club. Come see these five young ruffians display their scruffy vagabond style jams cus basically thats whats up! They have toiled hard on this for a good long while and now they wanna party wit yall. I’ll testify that this record is nothing short of 11 straight bangin soon-to-be-anthems for this and the next generation. We’ll be at the party and so will Sun Hotel, so ya know it sure to be that kind of crazy party. For those penny pinchers, Cover is only $5. For those more generous, the album is gonna cost $5 too! $10 to see 3 bands and get a cd?!? That’s cheaper than a movie, son!
Oh, and here’s a free movie with Jacky D of New Grass fame talkin on the album and playin yall a little ditty.
