hello dear friend. my other dear friend, the mystical jewish rapper eprhyme, is bringing his humble hip hop sideshow to town to celebrate the release of his new record, dopestylevsky. joined by horsewhisperer annah anti-palindrome, underwater sea creature choir conspiracy of venus, and me, myself, nomy lamm, and you – THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. you think i’m kidding? i need you to be there because there is a rumor that the whole wide world will be collaborating with me on a cover of pat benatar’s “invincible.” (all of those links are videos, and if you watch the one for “invincible” – which i recorded myself playing for the second time ever today – you can see my bear head peaking out over the giant accordion – then you can practice with me and be ready for our big show on may 8th.)
The kabbalists say that the great work
is to align your thoughts with Will, and your feelings with Love.
You integrate it all in the body, and the way you can do that, is with music.
Eprhyme (pronounced E-prime) is a Renaissance Rapper, representing a profound resurgence of depth and dope within an all too often formulaic, uninspired and commercialized art form. Whether rhyming about Current Events, Altered States of Consciousness, or Cutting-edge Kabbalistic Commentary, Eprhyme’s “rapid-fire word salads are a humanist vision of spirituality fused with social engagement.” (The Forward). Eprhyme is celebrating the release of his new album, ‘Dopestylevsky’, being released on legendary Northwest indie label K Records. ‘Dopestylevsky’ will be the first rap album released on K Records in over a decade! This is bold new music that is both thought provoking and body rocking.
Annah Anti-Palindrome- is an Optical Sound-Smith, and queer/femme antagonist from Oakland, CA. Annah performs using a variety of different mediums including a Line 6 (DL4) looping system, kitchen utensils, gas-masks, raw eggs, blood pressure cuffs, found objects, her body (mostly her throat), and more!
Conspiracy of Venus is a women’s community a capella group based in San Francisco. CoV sings original arrangements of contemporary music. Under the artistic direction of Joyce Todd McBride, the 40 women of CoV interpret her daring and inventive arrangements of songs ranging from the classic (Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi) to the cutting edge (Bjork’s Possibly Maybe) with dazzling technical verve and tons of personality. the groups repertoire also includes works by Bill Withers, Rufus Wainwright, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Wherever the group performs, Conspiracy of Venus is hailed by audiences as a groundbreaking musical experience.
