Back in New Orleans this Saturday for our cities soul swap. This event is a ton of fun, and the Ace Hotel is such an amazing place. Between the food, entertainment, and uniqueness of the decor and architecture…I hardly want to leave. Catch us in Three Keys with Houston’s own Jack Freeman, and Nola’s Elliot Love and Dj Ally Bea.

There are only a few times in life that you will witness something bringing more attention, anticipation, and excitement to your peers than you have ever seen…and the release of Black Panther is without a doubt one of those times. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part this release party. We have teamed up with Martell, and they have provided a special early screening at Edwards Greenway theater. Obviously the after party will take place at Alley Kat with The Waxaholics, so don’t miss out. Shout out to the homie Tay Mitch for the assist.
I remember one of my first parties in a professional setting (which means not a house party). It was at Yao Ming’s Restaurant on Westheimer, and it was shut down by the fire marshal due to capacity issues. I actually thought my life was over and they would never invite me back to do another event ever again, but I was wrong. They assured me that we could work on the issues at hand and definitely try it again. That was in 2004. Fast forward to 2018, and its been 3 months since we’ve held Grande, plus we have a new spot and a new start. Well the same thing happened. Capacity and flow issues forced an early shut down and some disappointment, but that should always lead to lessons learned.
And learned we have, and we are back this month with more bartenders, more bars, more open space and a new mindset to give our guest the best GRANDE experience that we can give.
Join us at Lucille’s, Saturday February 17th. And peep some pictures from the last event before the shutdown.
As always free entry, and $5 parking just across the street.
Excited to do this event with I Don’t Do Clubs out of New York.
A little information about the party:
MUST LOVE BEARDS was created by I DON’T DO CLUBS founder Genese Jamilah in January 2015. MUST LOVE BEARDS is a national day party for men who rock beards and women who can’t get enough of them. Women’s tickets are sold in advance to ensure the event is gender balanced. Men are allowed into the event for free, beard or not.
Check their website for more information and links to tickets, this should be interesting and fun.
July schedule is out. Guest sets from Dj Big Chuck, Dj Brody, Dj Athenz, and Dj 5-D (Dallas) in the front room. Come through and enjoy the three rooms of great music every Thursday at Alley Kat.
We’re taking this party on the road. “The Fix” is my monthly collaboration with Sean Falyon out of Atlanta. But tonight we collab with our LA peeps for “The Electric Fix“. Sounds by Sean Falyon, Spill, Mantron, and special guest DJ Tony Touch. Hosted by the homie El Prez and Definite. Looking forward to this…fall through.

Fresh off of a Kanye West birthday tribute, we go for “another one” with a 2pac and West Coast tribute. The new bio topic just released in theaters last week, and his birthday just passed, so it was only right. All vinyl hits per our usual Thursday theme, be sure to wear your chucks and get those W’s ready.
Update: Prodigy of Mobb Deep passed away in Las Vegas yesterday morning, more than likely we gotta end the night with some Mobb Deep and company. Sad day in hiphop, but the music always keeps you alive.
This may very well be the busiest weekend of the year. So many events and I am looking forward to them all. Catch me on the turntables for the next 4 days. And Sunday spinning with Talib Kweli should be a great end to the madness.
Side note: We are also releasing our “Vinyl Things” Waxaholics tee today. Get one while they last. Limited run.
See you guys soon.
