As previously announced, eXquire rolls into Eclectic tomorrow night. From Jake Ewald ’14:
With classy hits like “Good Pussy in Chicago,” “Cockmeat Sandwich/Pissin’ Between Train Cars,” and “Build-A-Bitch,” Mr. eXquire plans to bring his posse of samaritans to clean up Eclectic tomorrow night. Silky Johnson is opening, playing his first show ever. Kill-F (Will F. ’13) is opening also, playing his second show ever. It’s a night of firsts and seconds. Hope to see you there.
To quote eXquire:
What a ill fuckin journey this year has been for me, when that New Years Ball dropped I would have never thought i’d be on TV, Magazine’s, Websites, and all this shit… man 9 months ago I was in a fucking small ass booth checking parking tickets now i’m a starving artist… shit fuck’s my head up. I just be wanting to stop right here cuz i never thought i’d make it this far. Too late now tho, I told my nigga Trax once “We gotta make money now, cause we can’t get no broker!

Still recovering from the weekend? Wesleying, too. Pictured above: Men With Bad Manners’ spirited funk-inflected resurrection at Buddhist House on Saturday night. (Remember those guys? Remember that time they played Hewitt 9? No, you’re confused—you’re thinking of ska-bridge.)
At any rate, a brief photographic roundup of funk/hip hop/generally loud weekend happenings lies below. Kill-F (Will F. ’13, still reeling from his recent EP release) brought his latest brew of twisted solo rhymes to the stage for the first time, opening for rapper Cities Aviv in the hallowed Psi U ballroom. Men With Bad Manners set BuHo on the right path, laying some damn firm foundation for Baltimore alt-hip hop crew Femi the DriFish on the mic, who may or may not have been The-Roots-in-1994-time-traveling-in-disguise (not pictured: J-Pope, Funk Friday).
And also, Chants. Those guys from Awesomefest. With the costumes. At Beckham. What?
This Friday, rapper Cities Aviv (preceded by Will Feinstein ’13, who recently dropped his first solo EP) will take the stage at Psi U. A description of the acts follows, courtesy of Patrick Newman ’14:
Kill-F: Aka Waka Flaka Feinstein, AKA Trill Feinstein, AKA Will Fine-Dime-stein, will be opening up with some face melters off his recent Very Good EP (see album title for description of his style). Check out his Bandcamp page for more of his music.
Cites Aviv: “Memphis” Gavin Mays is an eclectic hip-hop act with his own perspective.” He’s coming out from Memphis with one of his producers to to kick back with all of ya’ll and lay down some tracks on the PSI U stage. His most recent album, Digital Lows is the shit and he’s got more ish in the works. Check out his Bandcamp page for more of his music.
