Brew Music News: Jay-Z & Kanye Hit The Road


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in brew music news, Jay Z, Kanye West | Posted on 25-07-2011

With their “Watch The Throne” project dropping next month, King Carter and The Supreme White Girl Interrupter Kanye West are going on tour. The “Watch The Throne Tour” is scheduled for 24 dates so far. It kicks off in Detroit in September. Oddly though, there aren’t any NYC dates. I thought surely these two would be all up in the Garden.

• 9/22/11 Detroit, MI Palace of Auburn Hills
• 9/24/11 Toronto, ON Air Canada Centre
• 9/25/11 Montreal, QC Bell Centre
• 9/27/11 East Rutherford, NJ Izod Center
• 9/28/11 East Rutherford, NJ Izod Center
• 9/29/11 Washington DC Verizon Center
• 10/4/11 Philadelphia, PA Wells Fargo Center
• 10/6/11 Chicago, IL United Center
• 10/7/11 Chicago, IL United Center
• 10/8/11 Minneapolis, MN Target Center
• 10/10/11 Denver, CO Pepsi Center
• 10/13/11 Tacoma, WA Tacoma Dome
• 10/14/11 Vancouver, BC Rogers Arena
• 10/16/11 San Jose, CA HP Pavilion
• 10/17/11 Sacramento, CA Power Balance Pavilion
• 10/19/11 Los Angeles, CA Staples Center
• 10/20/11 Los Angeles, CA Staples Center
• 10/21/11 Las Vegas, NV MGM Grand Garden Arena
• 10/25/11 Dallas, TX American Airlines Center
• 10/26/11 Houston, TX Toyota Center
• 10/29/11 Atlanta, GA Philips Arena
• 10/30/11 Greensboro, NC Greensboro Coliseum
• 11/1/11 Baltimore, MD 1st Mariner Arena
• 11/3/11 Boston, MA TD Garden

Tickets for the shows go on sale August 8th, the same day as the album. I sure hope this combined tour goes better than Jay-Z’s other attempt at touring with a big time artist.

BTW, if you haven’t heard it yet, here’s the first single off the “Watch The Throne” album, “Otis.”

Breaking Brew: Amy Winehouse Dead


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in amy winehouse, breaking brew, Brew News, rip | Posted on 23-07-2011

A Witch is knee-deep in her feelings right now. British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment in London today. The police report does not specifically name Winehouse but says:

Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.

We all know Winehouse battled years of addiction and had been in rehab several times for cocaine withdrawal symptoms among other things.

She embarked on a European tour this summer but was forced to cancel it after horrible reviews and seeming “out of it” on stage. Photos surfaced recently showing her in better condition but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Her death probably isn’t a surprise to many but it’s still sad, nonetheless. Her “Frank” and “Black To Back” albums were the soundtracks to my life when I was going through love woes or just needed to dance around the house. I’m sad that we’ll never really know her full potential. She now rests with other music greats who fell victim to the lifestyle, cutting short their musical legacies.

Brew Commentary: Shove Your “Check Ins”, Momma’s Juice & Other Deep Thoughts


Posted by Elphaba Of The Brew | Posted in brew commentary, Brew Confessions, Brewpoint | Posted on 21-07-2011

Look it’s hot. Like Magma hot, and I’m having trouble concentrating on ONE linear thought…so I’ll just kick it Acapulco straight from the dome.

  • So, I’m hanging out with some friends as one is likely to do in the Summa Summa Summa Tiiiime… and these heffas  straight up are Facebook/Four Square check in crazed.  Seriously? You really NEED all the dudes you gave  ” A Nice Old Fashioned” to in the ’90′s to know that you have just arrived at your favorite Rib and Donut spot: “Saucy Holes”… for the 4th time this week?  Or that you have finally arrived at that long over due appointment at the “Smooth Clam Day Spa” to get your chocha waxed?  Look, you can do what you want…just stop taking me down with you! It doesn’t matter if I disable my check in, if in your damn status you link me and say ‘ Elphie and I are enjoying a nice steaming hot cup of gizzard grease and after that we’ll be stopping by to get her rash checked out.’  Can’t our private time with getting into nonsense and tomfoolery, be you know… PRIVATE? Consider it…do it for the children. A Witch got warrants, son!
  • I’m totally pissed about all these TV and Movie remakes:  The Smurphs, Charlie’s Angels, Dallas, and now motherforkin’ 21 Jump Street? Really? If Johnny Depp is not smoldering as a cop who looks like an old ass teen, this is positively WORTHLESS!  All this Hollywood laziness and we Witches’ don’t even have our own Telenovela yet? I call Bulljivington, Sir!! Team  Telemundo, bishes!
  • Summer concerts, there is literally everything  for this Witches’  wide musical taste this summer. I don’t know what to do with myself! I’m UBER EXCITED to see Miss Jill Scott and her horny/hungry ass in concert again.  She’s a Girl Crush to the extreme!  When she opened for Maxwell, I wanted her to stay on an extra hour and just sing over and over again: Griiiiiiitsssss.   Check her out:  Jill Scott’s Block Party dates.
  •   Afro Punk Festival is going to be MEGA EFFING AMAZEBALLS in BK! (among others) Res, Santigold, Janelle Monet AND THE MOTHEREFFING FISHBONE!?  Fishbone,  is totally Cali/ska-rock’s Chuck Berry:   a big ass reason the Red Hot Chili Peppers and No Doubt achieved mainstream success! WHY THE BLACK MAN ALWAYS GOTTA BE THE UNSUNG HERO, SON!?! /end Militant moment.
  • Hippity Hop: For the thug in me…Rock The Bells is only going to be in a few cities this year, guess they couldn’t risk putting Miss Lauryn Hill on the road?  Boo and hiss.. BUT Nas is performing “Illmatic”, whut! Oh and Erykah Badu will be there doing “Baduism” and  looking for a new baby daddy too… yea, it’s funny cause it’s true.  Now I’ve gotta figure out how I’m getting all this time off from work.
Aiight, Witch Out, it’s time for a lil’ Mama’s juice and a shower.  What is “Mama’s juice you ask?”  Well some people call em Coco Losos, some people call it straight up, Ciroc Coconut.  But when I’m swigging from the bottle that lives in my freezer, after a long day of work, in my big Witch bloomers and nothing else… I call it Mama Juice! “Mama needs her juice now, you go on outside and play you little fuckers!!” I scream to my imaginary children. Then,  Mama’s Juice calms me right on down.

WTF? Files: Summer’s Eve “Talking” Vaginas


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Tube, vagicat, vagina, What's your call?, WTF? Files | Posted on 20-07-2011

Any time a commercial has a sista girl rolling her neck or spittin’ slave talk to sell chicken or fried shrimp, the army of black women mounts up and rings the alarm. Here’s another commercial adding fuel to the “oh no they didn’t” fire. Summer’s Eve is running a new “Hail To The V” ad campaign that praises the sunshiny goodness of a clean, perfumed and Handi Wiped vagina before you “hit ‘da club” (because your good, soapy scrubbin’ with water isn’t enough…yes, your non-Summer’s Eved vag is inferior). In the ad called “Lady Wowza,” the “talking vagina” is clearly black and critics say the manner in which the vagicat is “speaking” mixes stereotypes in a sexist and tasteless way.

You be the judge. Is this a tacky commercial or not?

The ads have set off a firestorm across feminist and other women-focused blogs. Oh, but the vaginas aren’t only black. These vaginas are equal opportunity.

Brew Tube: Fallon & Timberlake – History of Rap: Part 2


Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Tube, jimmy fallon, justin timberlake, the roots | Posted on 20-07-2011

Last year, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake teamed up to bring us their “History of Rap” on Jimmy’s late night show. Last night, the duo cranked out another set of tunes, hitting everything from Kurtis Blow to The Dougie with the help of the Legendary Roots Crew, of course.

Peep it.
