"Wild Style" party Crobar
we went to ck his party at Crobar last night .
Treated to another memorable set by Grandmaster Caz spinning a barrage of hits and MC'ing over and along with
JKwon's 'Tipsy' , Jay Z "Dirt off Your Shoulder" ,
Usher's "Yeah" boom , 50's "In Da Club" , dub rub da club
Caz got into another short turn at the turntables playing the old hiphop tracks from early '80's
boom baca boom baca boom boom boom boom
the drums thundering up the high ceiling of a rather large main room .
Some breakdancers form a circle on the floor as Eric B & Rakim
GF's roadie wheeled up three metal record cases ,
popped 'em open Grandmaster Flash setting to come on
immediately goes into J Kwon's "Everybody In The Club Get Tipsy" , shouting and a general oh yeah' rises from the dancefloor and the crowd as the club filled up .
Pretty mixed , only some people were there for "Wild Style" party but that didn't stop them from responding to that periods great club tracks
Rudolph walked by, ('in the club looking so conspicuous')
I say hello , we talk a bit and he gives me his card .
Hadn't seen him for years , he was co owner of the legendary Danceteria club from 80's
2 Danceteria's , the second one the one that everyone from Mark Kamins - Madonna , Malaria , Einsturzende Neubauten Alien Sex Fiend , Jim Thirwell /Foetus played or hung out at in the early '80's .
Ike Yard and DCC played there a few times
i must have gone there myself easily a 100 nights
We got our 7$ beers and hung out ,
gave some records to Caz ,
met Director Charlie Ahearn , who was showing 'never seen before' behind the scene photos taken from the "Wild Style" shoots . I looked to see if there were any Rammellzee pics , but no
Watched many groups of 2-3 multi ethnic girls
circulating through the club
and by us (Kukoo Da Baga Bonz and me)
We just let them stream by for awhile
Out to the street and outside
the club is packed with a crush of XL jacketed guys ,
Slow cruising SUV Escalade jam circling the club
We headed out
