Have You Ever Seen The Official Video for Turn Down For What by DJ Snake & Lil Jon??

A few weeks ago, I was enjoying some Saturday night cocktails with a group of about 10 people &, after the song was randomly mentioned, I discovered I was 1 of only 2 who had seen the official video for the 2013 smash hit Turn Down For What by DJ Snake & Lil Jon. We all know the song but the question is: Have YOU seen the video? If not, I suggest you brace yourself...

Groove It Out by LoneLady - Official Video

Travis Holcombe of KCRW introduces me to new, fantastic music every weeknight between 10pm & midnight. A couple weeks ago, he turned me onto Groove It Out by LoneLady aka Julie Ann Campbell & it's quickly become a morning beach run soundtrack staple :)

MEET Zoe & The Bear

Little Balloon & Jeffrey are just 2 of the killer tracks from Zoe & The Bear's debut album The Lost Files Mixtape which was released last Tuesday 4/14. I'm so thankful my friend Matt turned me onto this hot new duo consisting of Zoë Soul & J "The Bear" Bynum

You might recognize Zoë from such films as The Purge: Anarchy & Prisoners or, most recently, BET's Queen Latifah-produced series Single LadiesJ is a musician & producer who's performed with a huge variety of artists like Ray Charles & Bonnie Raitt & has written &/or produced for everyone from Akon & Rick Ross to Michael Bolton & Jim Jones.

Zoe & The Bear's May 15th show at The Hotel Café is going to be something special. Buy your tickets NOW because it's sure to sell out ->

No Offense to Sir Elton John But...

...My Morning Jacket's cover of Rocket Man is even better than the original. I still can't wait to hear Elton John play it live at Outside Lands in SF in August though! I'm sure I'll like his version too :) 

I know it's a huge stretch but I feel the need to point out MMJ doesn't currently have a show scheduled for Sunday 8/9 & that's the night EJ is headlining Outside Lands. I'm gonna go ahead & dream that Jim James might pop up as a special guest during Elton John's performance although I realize it's ridiculously unlikely since they're playing in Georgia on 8/7 & 8/8 & Alabama on 8/10. If only they were closer to Cali that weekend!
