I hope everyone had a wonderful leisurely President’s Weekend. I did just that, with a few fun things thrown in the mix. I was supposed to go to work today, but since my boyfriend had the day off, I decided to play hooky and it was definitely worth it. Sometimes weekends just fly by and you can’t quite remember if you did much of anything…other times it seems jam packed with not much relax time involved. This was the perfect balance of the two, and I am feeling happy, healthy, and rejuvinated.
I am also seriously stoked on a show the boyfriend and I saw on our big Saturday night out. We went to a little hole in the wall pizza place/concert venue to see a girl rapper named K. Flay. I first heard of K. Flay by browsing the endless free downloads on my favorite music site rcrdlbl. Be sure to click on the link to check out the site if you have never been… Especially if you enjoy listening to indie rock, elctro, house, and hip hop. It’s free, and a great way to find new music. Case in point, K. Flay. One of her songs was featured on the rcrdlbl site, which then led us to her show to see what she was all about. I love when you go into a show not having any expectations, and you leave completely bewildered and impressed at what you just had the privilege of seeing. Well, this was definitely one of those shows. K. Flay was ahhhmazing to say the least.
She has a great voice and a diverse delivery that ranges from smoky vocals that would sound at home on a folk record, diving right into furious raps that had the hardest looking dudes in the club nodding their heads. She is self produced and makes all of her own beats, lyrics and releases her music herself on her website, which she also manages herself. She submerged into hip hop after studying Sociology at Stanford University. How many people can say they went to Stanford and then decided to be a rapper? Not many. You should definitely check out her website and download her free EP Mashed Potatoes at www.kflay.com. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
Here is one of my personal favorites:
