Remix Week has come to an end, but there’s plenty to get to this week. (As a reminder, I’ll be knocking out the remix links by about midnight tonight.)
I have a feeling I could be going heavy on the hip-hop this week. I picked up Blueprint’s 1988 (on Rhymesayers Entertainment) last week, and I love it. I also have another new Aceyalone track.
First, a few loose ends for this Sunday:
A reader, Ryan, sent me an mp3 of a mashup that his DJ friend put together of two songs he considered to be the best and worst of 2005:
Neighborhood 3 My Humps (mp3). (Even though I think it’s widely accepted that the Arcade Fire’s Funeral came out in 2004, this still was pretty damn funny.) Thanks, Ryan.
There seems to be a load of concerts that I wanna hit in the AZ in the coming months:
- Jan. 25: Digable Planets, at the Orpheum Theatre in Flagstaff.
- Jan. 26: Rob Dickinson, at Anderson’s Fifth Estate in Scottsdale. ($5 at the door.)
- Feb. 5: Of Montreal, at Clubhouse in Tempe. (Tickets here.)
- Feb. 18: The Hold Steady, at the Old Brickhouse in Phoenix. (Tickets here.)
- Feb. 20: Nada Surf, Rogue Wave and the King of France, at Clubhouse in Tempe. (Tickets here.)
- Feb. 26: Tim Fite with the Wedding Present, at Plush in Tucson. (Tickets here.)
- March 21: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, at Solar Culture in Tucson.
Looks like lots of coolness going on in Tucson, which brings me to an email I got from The Golden Boots, a “crumbly western and alt-alt country” band outta the Old Pueblo. Check out their MySpace for some tunes. They’re playing in Phoenix at the Trunk Space on Jan. 23 and I wanna do a more thorough post in the coming days.

I linked to that mash up…I hope you don’t mind…Will note that it’s being taken down at midnight…Not like too many people read my stupid LJ anyway.
No worries. I’ll probably keep that mashup linked this week.
Whoa. I should be at several of those shows; Rob Dickinson, Of Montreal, the Hold Steady, and Wedding Present/Tim Fite. And maybe Nada Surf/Rogue Wave.
And that Arcade Fire/Black Eyed Peas mash-up is more funny if you call it “Hump My Tunnels.”
