I am proud to announce that You Know What Really Grinds My Gears, my collaboration with DJ Roz of Champion Sounds, was a success. Last Tuesday marked the first open-forum karaoke-style airing of the grievances in the history of..ever. My only fear of hosting what amounted to an open-mic rant session was that there would be a bunch of bitter folks saying things like “All you b*tches ain’t sh*t” and messing up the comedic tone I set with my humorous rants over hip-hop beats. Thankfully, everyone there kept it amusing and light so the night was very fun and laid-back.
Special thanks to DJ Roz for approaching me a few months back with the idea of working together on an event. Through numerous meetings and brainstorming sessions, it turns out that the simplest idea that the two of us came up with was a good one. Apparently, a lot of folks in DC have sh*t on their minds and want to get it off their respective chests. I’m just glad to provide a forum that may sound negative, but in actuality is cathartic and hilarious. I’ll know pretty soon if we’re doing another one in February, so that announcement will come soon. Below, I’ve placed some pictures from the event, courtesy of Steven Jacobs Photography. I failed to get quality video this time, but if we do this again in February I will try my best to make that happen.
