    NoMasterBacks on the Hoku’s 

    the lightsleepers own NoMasterBacks will be representing Hawaii’s underground hip-hop scene tonight as they are nominated for the Na Hoku HanoHano award for best hip-hop album.  If you remember last year’s awards ceremony, Creed Chameleon was nominated but, sadly, did not win.

    Hopefully NMB can pull out the win for all of Hawaii’s hip-hop faithful.  Like what KTC mentioned on the lightsleepers site, it’s not all about fame or money, it’s making sure that the right people win.  And NMB has been on the grind for the better part of a decade.  Here’s hoping they win.

    You can catch the Hoku awards tonight on K5 the Home Team, starting at 730pm.

    lightsleepers in the Northwest 

    For all the Northwest heads out there (and I KNOW you guys read this… so start paying attention right about… now).

    The lightsleepers crew is invading the Northwest territory with a show at Whitworth College’s HUB. The show will feature the lightsleepers own NoMasterBacks, along with the DJ stylings of Memoir(s), the beat manipulation of Sentr1c, the overall positivity of the chief lightsleeper, Kavet The Catalyst and a special performance from Spokane’s finest, Locke and DJ Parafyn.

    This is going to be a true NoMasterBacks show, with all three members in one place at the same time since the album release party a while back. So, for all the Northwest heads, make plans for that road trip to Spokane this Saturday. The show is free and doors open at 8PM.

    For more info on the show: http://www.lightsleepers.net

    Spokane is the new Seattle.

    Look for the atypicalLIVING Expedition of the Northwest this Summer. Details forthcoming.

    KTC x NMB x woes at Borders Ward 


    This, suffice to say, is a pretty interesting event.  The lightsleepers/PFoM crew will be invading Borders Books and Music at Ward Center.  Yes, you read that right, Borders Books and Music at Ward Center.  Will be hosting a free (yes, FREE) event this Friday night.  KTC and Bumble Bee will be spinning throughout the event and Wade and well.being from NoMasterBacks will be performing.  All the while, angry woebots will be live painting throughout the night.

    So, get away from the usual Friday night haunts and hit up something different.  The show starts at 8PM, though you might want to get their early to avoid the lines and to find parking at Ward Center.
