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
MP3: The Catalyst: Excuse Me
Professional Hipster & Dim Mak record founder Steve Aoki (seen above discussing his support for his buddy Lindsay Lohan) will be at MilkBar during Gallery Hop. He is in town dejaying at Sugar. If you are a professional townie like myself, odds are you prolly going to Bourban and Summit to see Unholy Two, Cheater Slicks, and Times New Viking tonight. So for me Aoki at MilK Bar is really helpful. If you are more of a neon rave type than check out Aoki at Sugar Bar.
Scotty Cockblock(Sweatin,Invented Columbus Hardcore) and DC Kareem(Get Right/MilkBar) are throwing a new Funk Party tonight with Columbus Hip Hop Pioneer DJ True Skills in the limelight. True Skills(Adrian Willis) has some of most curious, peregrine psychedelic funk records I have heard. Its like a weed brigadeiros for your body’s internal rhythmic response mechanisms.

This next post is devoted to jeans. The homie DCKareem is opening up his boutique Milk Bar on 5th and High. I guess he has organic jeans coming at a decent price. We have all been kicking it there. Today I saw plenty of clothing that would look cute and sexually attractive on females. Milk Bar is having a grand opening party this Saturday, during Gallery Hop, before the Ginuwine show at the Cove.
I felt like it was only right that we talk about those girl “In those Jeans”. Ginuwine knows what it is. And once again we find our hero, Ginuwine, crossing cultural barriers. This time he is in a Geisha house. Even though its about women with large glutes, and how they look in their denimwares, there are also scantly clad women in kinomos. I would have rather just have women in tight jeans, but it would’nt have been as groundbreaking and trancendent if it followed my narrow world view.
