Folks have been crazy running around ATL this week at the A3C Festival. There are a ton of performances and panels covering everything from building a buzz to how to be a better performer. 9th Wonder and DJ Premier are doing a panels tomorrow. Talib Kweli is performing tonight. J-Live is performing several times. Aesop (w/ Rob Sonic & Big Wiz) and Madlib are playing on the Redbull Sound Select stage tomorrow night. Check out the schedule here.
@Aesoprockwins has maintained an unintentional archive in his studio for the last 8 years. He wants to share some of it with you!
He spent an afternoon signing out-of-print and rare items along with his back catalog (original pressings). Everything can be found here. He’s repressing Labor Days & Bazooka Tooth vinyl which will be out soon.
There were a very limited number of Adidas he did with Upper Playground. He wanted to give people a shot to get them, so they have been placed on Ebay, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to several causes he supports. The link to the auctions is here.
Aesop is currently working on the next Hail Mary Mallon record with Rob Sonic & Big Wiz. They’re posting progress on 900bats.com.
Hello everyone everywhere. If you are a fan of amazing music, then you may know that our good friend and longtime collaborator Aesop Rock released his new solo album Skeleton on July 10, and kicked off his US tour July 13.
However, On July 15, hours before his 2nd show of the tour at the Fillmore in SF, someone broke into Aesop’s tour van and stole all vital stage gear, forcing Aesop to cancel the show. It took thousands of dollars to quickly replace all the audio/visual equipment they needed to be able to continue the tour to avoid cancellation.
In order to help recoup anything we can to compensate for the stolen and replaced equipment while they are on the road, we here at ZEROFRIENDS got together and I designed a limited edition ‘Skelethon’ giclee print to be released THIS FRIDAY AT NOON PACIFIC TIME.
The limited print is an edition of 125 and measures 16″ x 20″. It will be signed by BOTH AESOP AND MYSELF and sold exclusively via ZEROFRIENDS starting Friday Aug 3 at noon pacific time.
Cost is $50 each
All proceeds to Aesop to help him cover his costs. Thank you all for your support.
