Summer ‘O Sammy Tour Diary

Posted on Jun 24th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas


Sammy live @ LAX

I’m done with the tour! I decided to wait until the end to provide the wrap-up, but hopefully people will actually read this, because its kind of long! I’ll give a brief digest to start out so you know what your getting into:

- Summer of Sammy Tour = Serial Massacre i.e. Raging Success
- Cameos from Ayres, Alan and Eh’Life
- Run ins with border patrols, bikes and BEPs
- Triumphs of Celtics, Cesars and Cruisers
- Chilling with Diamonds, Daniels and Debonairs
- A mix classic gets re-released, this time for free

I’m gonna start off by saying that the main (if only) reason that I’m writing this blog is so that Certified Max can read it. I’m gonna lay this bro-love right out there in the open; Max and I have had some amazing times DJing around North America and I thought of him on innumerable occasions on this run. Hopefully at least he will read the whole thing!

Trizzy’s Mindspray, Vol.4

Posted on Jun 21st, 2008 by A-Trak

I just landed in Barcelona for the famous Sonar festival. We were billed as “DJ Mehdi vs A-Trak feat Kid Sister”. I love it because it’s a math formula: “vs” is like “x” and “feat” is like “+”. But wait, there’s an issue with the priorities! Is it (DJ Mehdi x A-Trak) + Kid Sister, or DJ Mehdi x (A-Trak + Kid Sister) ? In other words, the DJs and the MC, or Europe meets America? I think I might ask the organizers. Strictly speaking, the way they wrote it without parentheses it should mean the first one. But Kid Sis actually canceled last week so they might not be receptive to my little question.

Hard LA July 19th

Posted on Jun 20th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

We’ve been remiss in not shouting out the Hard LA festival, which pops off in a matter of weeks (July 19th!) at the Shrine Expo Center in LA. If you didn’t see the giant airplane ad flying over Coachella, or watched the festival’s Truckasaurus-worthy TV commercial, know this: it’s gonna be a MAJOR RAGER featuring N.E.R.D., MSTRKRFT, Spank Rock, and FG’s own Kid Sister, A-Trak, and LA Riots, along with Steve Aoki, Kill The Noise, Bloody Beetroots and a bunch of other fine folks. Get your advance tickets now. And stay hydrated!

Sammy Bananas has two more dates left on his epic Summer Of Sammy trek, and promises a full tour diary as soon as he’s done, complete with tales of debauchery and Black Eyed Pea encounters (dude is a Kid Cudi fan, apparently!). Meanwhile, you can check Sammy in Chicago tonight (6.19) at Debonair Social Club and in Milwuakee on Saturday (6.21) at MOCT, and download the Summer Of Sammy mixtape if you haven’t already bowed down to it’s grandeur. “Rhythm Of The Night,” people!
