On stage Ostrich Run relinquishes their carefree attitudes and manifests into the commanding musicians they know they were born to be. Connecting with the audience and thriving on their energy are what perpetuate the band and enable them to express their boisterous personalities. Founded by Anaheim natives, Joel Rowland and Mark Pascale in 2013, Ostrich Run is all about connecting with people through their blend of indie and alternative rock sound.
The duo bonded over their numerous musical influences from as far back as Louis Armstrong, to contemporary artists such as Blink-182, Arcade Fire, and Foster the People. The band has graced the stages of numerous venues including The House of Blues, The Glass House, The Mint LA and more.
Ostrich Run joins Take 2 Radio Music on Wednesday, August 27th at 3pm eastern!
If you're anything like me then you think that you know a Black person when you see one and you know a white person when you see one right? But do you? Are you sure? Are you always sure? The truth is that Black people come in so many different shades of dark and light that it's not always as easy as trusting your eyesight. You can be easily identifiably Black by being dark with kinky hair and other features but you can also be blonde haired with blue eyes with straight hair like Laurin Crosson has.
Do you think that because you have the features of a white person that you will automatically enjoy white privilege? Watch what Lairin has to say about that.
Do you think that because you can pass for being white that that would automatically be what a person would choose to be? See what Laurin has to say about that.
Do white people always accept a person who is visibly white as their own? Ask Laurin.
Would the Black community embrace a person that looks white as one of their own or would they scrutinize and write a person like that as a fraud? See what Laurin's experiences have been.
This show will be a lesson about acceptance and identification. About learning that what you see isn't always what you get. About learning how and where to fit in and be comfortable despite being different.
This is about learning how to make it against the color complexion odds from a different perspective than we are used to hearing it from.
Most of all this show will be about what being Black or white means vs how it plays out in real life.
This show is sure to please.
What's shaking, folks! Unfortunately, we preeempted this past Saturday's Grindhouse show but it was for a VERY good reason-The Afropunk Festival! Join Captain Kirk, Dburt and a special appearance from the Uncanny Daryll B., this Wednesday at 7:30pm. The topics to be unpacked are: the Afropunk highlights, of course; our thoughts on the Floyd Mayweather vs 50 cent feud. Is illiteracy ever funny?; in the latest in minstrel news, the co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight was shot multiple times while attending a Chris Brown VMA party; can the sudden popularity of Little League World Series phenom, Mo'ne Davis herald the return of Blacks to the sport of baseball?; Dburt waxes about a recent Sirius-XM townhall about Black men that still got it wrong; was the NY Times out of line for refering to slain teen, Michael Brown as being "no angel?" ; and speaking of media depictions, does the #iftheygunnedmedown social media campaign make a legitimate point about the Black vs White victim portrayals?; a Time article posits that the animal mind is more compex than one would think and that they may getting smarter (as we humans appear to be lowering the cognitive bar); is Hercules' Kevin Sorbo racist (or like the preceding animal mind reference....was his rant more complex?); and lastly, is it possible that Fox's Megyn Kelly actually got it right when discussing White privilege with her colleague, Bill O'reilly? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
FULL COURT PRESS is the creative vision of A&R Executive Shannon “Slam” Ridley who, as a father to twin boys, was looking for ways to inspire and encourage them. “With over a decade of successes at Bad Boy Records, I understand the power of hip-hop on American culture. My only problem was there was nothing on the radio that I could listen to with my children. The lyrics are totally contrary to what I'm teaching in my home. I thought it would be really cool if I could enjoy listening to Hip-Hop with my children the way we enjoy an NBA game!” With that Full Court Press was born. “Why not make an clean, inspiring, Hip-Hop Album combining the world’s greatest basketball players & rappers. NO disrespecting women, NO curse words, NO "N" word, NO glorification of drug use, while keeping the integrity of the music with hard driving tracks.”
Acclaimed A-list dancer and rising solo artist Alvester Martin concludes his illustrious dancing career as the male lead in Michael Jackson’s latest music video titled A Place With No Name, the second single off of the musical icon's posthumous album Xscape. The video went viral last night via Michael Jackson's Twitter, and everyone is talking about it!
Finally stepping into his own, and already noticed for his good looks by Essence Magazine, Alvester has recently signed with Universal Music Group as a solo recording artist. His debut album entitled Love Me or Leave Me is slated for release in the Fall/Winter of 2014, and will be exclusively distributed through Emagine/Universal Music Group.
