Columbus emcee Fabrashay A is playing the Friday installment of the Donewaiting 10-Year Anniversary/Farewell Show along with Bru Lei, Barely Eagle, Fumes, and DJ Detox this weekend.
Above is the trailer for Fab’s upcoming EP the Resurgence which drops 2/26/2013. “The Resurgence” will be presented by DJ Touch Money, and DJ Corey Grand. If you watch the trailer you can see why Fab is one of most buzzed about young rappers in Columbus.
With the demise of The Other Paper (even its website!) and the forthcoming digital death of Donewaiting after our 10-year anniversary celebration this weekend, I don’t think I have it in me to muster up a lengthy farewell post. I pretty much said all I wanted and needed to say in “Dead Links,” a piece I wrote for the current issue of Maura Magazine, a new weekly iPad/iPhone publication from Maura Johnston. You can subscribe here for $2.99 or try out one issue for free if you’re not ready to pull the trigger. (Don’t be afraid to pull that trigger.)
I’ve never been the recognizable face or personality that Duffy was while he was in town. I tend to be more comfortable in the shadows of anonymity. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t enjoy reminiscing with you this weekend at Ace of Cups and Double Happiness. Come say hello and goodbye.
As mentioned previously, Donewaiting is ending digital production in February and will become a print only entity in the summer, releasing one issue per year. We’ve finally put the final touches on our anniversary/goodbye weekend in Columbus. Here’s the details:
