Lil Wayne was apparently hanging out and skateboarding in Kansas City this weekend

Posted By on Mon, May 21, 2012 at 11:47 AM

According to some Hot 103 chatter and the above photo (posted on the Street League Facebook page), Lil Wayne was in Kansas City this weekend for the Street League DC Pro Tour competition at Sprint Center. He also shouted out KC skateboarder Sean Malto on Twitter on Sunday: "Props 2all da sk8rs in SLS!! Dey kilt it! Props to Nyjah 4 doin it AGAIN!! Dat kid is 2dam good. Luv 2 Sean & Justin Malto! & PRod & Shane O".

Any other Weezy sightings around town? Extremely curious over here.

A solution for SXSW social-media envy

Posted By on Mon, Mar 12, 2012 at 9:04 AM

For those of us stuck here in the Midwest, watching our friends post about South By Southwest this week is something akin to torture. Facebook and Twitter are about to become a daily slog of seething jealousy toward people for whom we normally have nothing but love and affection. For this week, however — being as we're stuck here while they're sucking down free Lone Star and eating food from taco trucks — fuck those guys. (Ed. note: Fuck all those guys, EXCEPT for The Pitch's music editor, who will be reporting from Austin and posting here on Wayward.) Thankfully, Lanyrd has developed a plugin for your Web browser that will eliminate that problem:
"The Lanyrd 'Not At SXSW' browser extension hides tweets from people we know are attending SXSW, along with any tweets mentioning SXSW, leaving you with tweets from people who are having the same not-at-SXSW experience as yourself."

Download that sucker for Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera and save yourself a lot of misery this week.

Three new Ghosty tracks streaming; new LP out digitally and on vinyl in April

Posted By on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 at 11:54 AM

Hell yeah.
  • Hell yeah.
A few months back, I wormed my way into a Ghosty recording session at Westend and got to hear some tracks from the band's upcoming album. They were rough cuts but they already sounded immaculate — those dudes are pros in the studio. Yesterday, the band threw up streams of three songs from the new LP, which you can buy digitally or on vinyl as of April 17. (Cool album art, too, via Jim Button of Continents.)

The thumping, jangly "Take" was already pretty much my new jam 10 seconds in, and that's before I heard its delicious Zombies-style bridge. "Joy in My Sorrow" has this amazing vocal soar halfway through and on the fadeout. I could go on, but that would be way more boring than just listening to it and buying it, which you can do by pushing the arrow thing in this space right here.

Madonna is coming! To Kansas City!

Posted By on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 11:13 AM

In like eight months. The date is Tuesday, October 30. Tickets on sale in about a month, on Monday, March 5. I fell asleep in a chair on Sunday sometime around the two-minute warning, and when I woke up, the third quarter was already in progress. Missed the whole performance. But maybe now I'll go back and search the performance. Very exciting news.

Watch Hermon Mehari and friends do an acoustic rendition of 'Niggas in Paris'

Posted By on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 8:54 AM

The 'Ye/Jay show in November really challenged my listening threshold for the Watch the Throne jam "Niggas in Paris." But here's a fresh local take on the song, courtesy of trumpeter Hermon Mehari, Brad Williams and Ben Leifer. It's note-for-note, and they pretend to be in France, even though they're obviously at Broadway Cafe and the tennis courts at Loose Park. It's charming. Watch.

The ACBs' Daytrotter session is up

Posted By on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 8:56 AM

On a recent tour, the ACBs stopped in at the Horseshack, the studio in Rockford, Illinois, run by the folks at Daytrotter, and recorded four songs. Last Friday, the website posted the songs (two from the band's most recent release, Stona Rosa, and two new ones) along with a meditative write-up that's sort of about the band and sort of about memories and stuff? I don't know, but it's worth checking out. Can't get enough of that bridge on "Xanies." Do it here.
