Daymon Day 9-19-09

day2Daymon Day will be returning to Tuttle Park, Saturday 9-19-09. There will be basketball, mural painting, dejay’s and a cookout from 3-8pm culiminating with the highlight of any god-fearing/foreign car stearing humyn’s week, the Daymon Day Parade. The parade leaves at 8 and journeys down the scenic campus of the Ohio State University until it reaches community hub, the Milk Bar, which is located on 5th and. High. There will be an after-party at a currently undisclosed location featuring DJ Lo Zone, True Skills, DJ Detox, and DJ Pos 2. All are welcome. We regret that this is the same day as Independents’ Day downtown, but this the day that we confirmed with Daymon’s family months ago. We are sure everything is going to be ok. All welcome.

If you are a human being and consider yourself  someone who likes culture, art, music or anything….. Basically, if you like anything at all and aren’t a terrible unhappy person for chrissakes watch the above video. It’s of last year’s Daymon Day Parade.  Even if you are a terrible, unhappy person still watch the above video because maybe it will brighten you day.  Seriously watch the video.

Watched it? Way better than any desription I could ever give.

Anyway, the 3rd Annual Daymon Day Parade is upon us honoring Racist Joe aka So What born Daymon Dodson. We also tip our hats to Przm, Camu Tao, Heist, Phrite, Nasty Nate and anyone else that has passed away. This isn’t just about Daymon. It’s about making something negative into a joyous moment. Your devotions will find a vehicle.

The parade is starting at 5th & High this year. We were unable to secure a permit for Tuttle Park like previous years. But the good people involvedwith the Gay Street Festival downtown were nice enough to extend a stage to us so people could gather outdoors after the parade.

On that stage will be performances by Youth Attack’s Vile Gash, and The Catalyst (ODOT/Thought Set) DJ Detox and Tru Skills will hold the alley down between acts. The festival is free.

So this year the parade starts at 5th and High. It leaves promptly at 6. Our good friends at Milk Bar have offered us space to assemble. We will have dejays set up there at around 4. Milk Bar isn’t a pretentious boutique. It’s also not a bar. So kids are a ok.  So everyone please feel comfortable.

Anyway. Columbus loved Daymon. Parades are fun. Walking in the middle of High Street during a game day only comes once a year. So even if you didn’t know Daymon you can feel free to show up. He made everyone at ease when he was out. So it’s that spirit that will be in place. It’s about enjoying life. Bring an instrument or drum to make noise. We are trying to have a marching band. If the marching bad turns out either atonal like a No Wave performance or as fluid as a New Orleans funeral band regardless it will be tremendous.

Here are a couple MP3’s by the artist performing after the parade. They are abrasive but fitting for this paticular legacy of Columbus Music.

MP3: Vile Gash: Cleanse The World

I Know Some of Y’all Hate Fun..

But I am like fuck it. I came across a Flickr account post by Bridget Eshbaugh that had lots of shots of people enjoying themselves at various recent events in Columbus

Daymon Day Pt. 1

Two weeks ago, on September 15th, some of us in Ohio celebrated the second annual Daymon Day, honoring our friend Daymon Dodson, who many have dubbed “the Patron Saint of Indie Culture” in Columbus. The past couple years have had Ohio’s Hip Hop and Graffiti communities suffering some severe losses. In addition to Daymon, producer mc DJ Przm, neighborhood legend Nasty Nate, as well as graffiti writers Heist and Phrite all passed away, leaving various intertwined cultures in a similar mourning mindstate. So we figured might as well acknowledge the impact of these and other lost loved ones, and celebrate their lives.

This years festivities included a cook-out, a graffiti mural, a Parade, and a Show. Participants included the Droids Crew, Pat Carney of the Black Keys, PBJ, Necropolis, RJD2,Blueprint, Spitball, O.D.O.T., SA Smash, IOK, AKE, BSA, Vomitrocity as well as hundreds of friends and family members.

Pt. 1 is going to focus on the cook-out and mural.
