Kool A.D. Brought His Kid to Wesleyan and Performed and There Were Lots of Zines at the Concert

“My Liberal University Cemented My Loyalty to Show Ponies” – Zine title

It has been 5 years since Das Racist broke up. And it has been almost 2 months since Heems added Wesleying on LinkedIn (see screenshot), and only 22 days since he started working for AGW Group, a Brooklyn-based marketing company. But this post isn’t about him.

heemsIt’s about Kool A.D., a different third of Das Racist. He’s coming off an exceptionally prolific 2016. He released 10 mixtapes in 2016, one of which had 100 tracks, as I previously mentioned on this website. He also published a book of 100 vignettes. 

Kool A.D. (or Victor Vasquez ’06) came back to campus this past Saturday to perform in Malcolm X House for the 2017 Disorientation Guide release party. His wife, Saba Moeel (aka CULT DAYS) opened for him, and they also brought their kid. This post is a retelling of what happened. I am really not fooling you. That’s all that it is.

Oh and also: there are 9 startlingly radical zines (which I received at the concert) that are embedded in this post as html flipbooks.

May Day Music Festival at Eclectic

eightSmash the state and sabotage capitalism at the revolutionary May Day Music and Art Festival at Eclectic, featuring art from the Public Art Project, ‘zines for reading, and music from:

Michael Jordan
Broccoli Destroyer
Grocery Thief
Baby Squad
Ninjasonik

and
Japanther

From Aural Wes:

May Day has stood as a celebration of the struggle of people who are fed up with the exploitation, boredom, and social domination of our society to destroy existing power structures and make room for new ones…

With that in mind, the group of us involved with putting together the Emergence Infoshop and Zine Library (located at 190 High…come visit!) thought it would be cool to have a May Day celebration which embodies the fact that sabotaging capitalism and smashing the state can and indeed SHOULD be fun and exciting (unless you’re a moldy old fucking Trotskyite…isn’t there a plenary meeting you’re missing?)we’re throwing the MAY DAY MUSIC AND ART FESTIVAL.

FESTIVAL? FUCK YEAH, FESTIVAL! and there will be ART: on display from the Public Art Project, as well as a miniature “nomad infoshop” where there will be sitting space and the finest selection of self-published and radical literature for your perusal and… NYC stripped-down noise punx MICHAEL JORDAN and BROCCOLI DESTROYER, and GROCERY THIEF along with Bard’s garage punx BABY SQUAD, low-budget-art-crunk from NINJASONIK and a set from electro-punk paragons JAPANTHER.

Date: Friday, May 1
Time: 8 pm
Place: Eclectic
