Summer is coming to a close, but it’s still hot as hell outside and the city’s music and arts community is still popping with events and new releases. As the season winds down, here are a few cool things that caught my eye / attention in the month of August.
RJD2 at Brooklyn Bowl Philly
DJ / producer and longtime Philly resident, RJD2 performed the closing show for the 2022 Adult Swim Block Party. Melissa and I went and RJ’s set was dope. Accompanied by a drummer and bassist, RJ played samples and cut it up nicely on the turntables. The band worked through a variety of songs from RJ’s catalog and Jordan Brown joined them for some real fly covers of Rick Jame’s “Mary Jane” and Earth Wind & Fire’s “Brazilian Rhyme (Interlude).”
