NME listed Parquet Courts as one of the 60 Most Exciting New Bands of 2013.
Pitchfork referenced both Wire and Yo La Tengo when describing Parquet Courts’ sound.
The Columbus Alive made this show its Staff Pick of the week and says the “post-punk combo that taps common record nerd sweet spots — Mission of Burma, Devo, Sonic Youth, any band with a motorik pulse — with uncommon grace.”
Cover is $5. Connections, Psychedelic Horseshit, and WV White round out the lineup at The Summit.
Cassidy – R.A.I.D. (Meek Mill Diss)
Cassidy dropped a 10 minutes diss to Meek Mill over various instrumentals. These two Philly rappers have been going back and forth since Meek clowned Cassidy’s Condom Style PSA.
Meek Mill response to Cassidy’s diss was dismissive..
Meek Mill is the higher profile artist and has a stronger infrastructure because he is in MMG.
What Cassidy has going for him is that he is respected in Philly as a battle emcee so he has a chance to irritate Meek in his home town.

Wu-Tang Clan’s 10th Official member Cappadonna renaissance continues. Last year he got down with his Wu-Tang comrades on RZA’s “The Man With The Iron Fists” OST on the Wu-Tang Clan reunion track “Six Directions Of Boxing” and with his appearance on the Wu-Tang Clan & D-Block project “Wu-Block”. Above is “Pull Your Life Together” off his upcoming album forthcoming double-CD, ‘Eyrth, Wynd & Fyre,’ which will be released on 2-26-2013 on RBC Records.
I really like that Cappadonna mentions that he doesn’t tip at the strip club while feeling empathy for a stripper.
Kendrick Lamar had my album of the year “Good Kid M.A.A.D. City” here on donewaiting. Above is a video for “Backseat Freestyle” which Lamar and Jerome D, Dave Free directed.
If you like this you can buy this album on i-tunes.
If you don’t get bored of scrolling down this list you can also watch random videos from Ohio artists. And read more lists in the Other Paper.
40. Ghetto Brothers – Power Fuerza
Ghetto Brothers’ Power Fuerza is a record created in 1971 by a South Bronx gang that turned into a band. This storied record was reissued this year. You know the Hip Hop story that turns the Warriors into Wild Style?
Something like that.
I think that BARACK OBAMA should have these dudes reform for his inauguration to promote Peace, Love ,Unity and Having Fun.

Patrick Carney tells Tony Hawk a story about stalking Akron, Ohio heroes Devo as a teenager.
It was a good year for good rock books. Joe Oestreich of Watershed released Hitless Wonder, probably my fave of the year, and Mike Doughty released The Book of Drugs. Doughty has been a busy man, and I’ve found he’s generally worth listening to, whether writing or releasing solo albums or mouthing off about the music industry.
His new album The Flip is Another Honey ($5) is a covers record. Check out the first video for the John Denver cover “Take Me Home, Country Roads” — a song you’re bound to hear at any given open mic or karaoke night. But Doughty does a good job of making it his own without excising the hook. (I’m also not ashamed to admit I’ve spent much of the holidays listening to an old vinyl copy of Rocky Mountain Christmas.)
Yes,Yes Y’all. P.Blackk & J.Rawls drop “Submuloc Fo Ytic 2.5.” off their upcoming album “Contemporary Nostalgia” (out 12/30) shot by Luke Sirimongkhon. This one features Fabrashay A & King Vada.
