Wizard of Oz, pt.2: The Crash

Posted on Feb 19th, 2008 by A-Trak

Following my last post about Good Vibrations, we’re now on the 2nd and final weekend of the Australian traveling festival. On the agenda: Sydney and the far-away Perth. People had been hyping up this Sydney show for the whole week. This would be the bigger, badder, deffer show of the bunch. We got there, scoped out the grounds as we rode around in our buggy and saw the masses of people undulating in the huge park… yep, this was gonna be a good one. Read More

Wizard of Oz, Pt.1

Posted on Feb 14th, 2008 by A-Trak

Good on ya, mates!

(That’s a little deeper in Aussie slang than the obvious “g’day”)

I’m reporting live via my hotel room in Sydney. I’m out here doing the Good Vibrations festival. In Australia they have these festivals that hit multiple cities. It’s like being part of a traveling circus for 10 days. A traveling techno circus. Read More

A Night at the Museum, Pt.2

Posted on Feb 3rd, 2008 by A-Trak

It’s a complete coincidence that Kid Sister and I were booked to perform at New York and LA’s Museums of Natural History on consecutive weekends. The events were unrelated, we’re not on a museum tour or anything.

Both turned out to be awesome in their own way. You already saw what the New York one was like last week… Kiiiinda crazy, with the surprise appearance of a fur-clad Kanyeezy. That one was in the planetarium, so it was very much a multi-media themed room. The LA show this weekend was a lot more like what you’d expect to see in a museum of natural history: a giant dinosaur skeleton when you walk in and a bunch of displays of impeccably preserved yaks, bisons, sea lions (those things are big!) and other cuddly creatures in simulated home habitat backdrops. How many times did I yell “stegosaurus!” on the mic during my set? One may never know. Read More

Trizzy’s Mindspray, Vol.1

Posted on Feb 2nd, 2008 by A-Trak

This morning I had to wake up at 6am to go to the airport. In the car I was thinking of the expression “the bane of my existence” and wondered if bane is one of those words that you only find in a specific expression. I’ve never heard the word bane elsewhere. So I looked up the definition on my phone. As it turns out you can also say “the bane of my life”, and bane can be used in other sentences. It means death or ruin. I also learned that there are poison names like wolfsbane that follow the model:
(something poopy)bane.

Fast-forward many hours later. I’m in LA getting ready for my show and somehow the Australian city Brisbane pops in my head. And then I think, could Brisbane mean death by bris, i.e. circumcision? An operation gone wrong?

Fool’s Gold Philly Takeover!

Posted on Jan 18th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar


Mack Mittens and Ms. Sister share a chuckle about tight jeans

Imagine Allen Iverson running up the Rocky art museum steps wearing Will Smith’s Speed Racer shirt from the “Summertime” video, multiply it by a million and this will still be more awesome-er…

This Saturday night (Jan 19th) Kid Sister and A-Trak hit Philadelphia to open for Akon, Freeway and Beanie Sigel – yes, you read that correctly – at Solo Nightclub (tickets here), followed by an afterparty at Transit with Nick Catchdubs alongside Philly’s own Brendan Bring’em, Dirty South Joe, and DJ Sega.
