- I am a big India.Arie fan and I am always happy to hear when she is making movements. Last we heard, the soulful brown-skinned beauty is to star on Broadway in the play "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When The Rainbow Is Enuf." Recently, India.Arie has embarked on the path to becoming a label owner. She has signed a deal with Universal Republic Records to start her label called SoulBird Music. The first artist signed to her label is the phenomenal Anthony David. Anthony's sound is a raspy, gritty soul and his voice alone will wrap around you like your favorite down comforter on a cold day. His last album Red Clay Chronicles was an extraordinary piece of work. I look forward to the release of his upcoming album entitled "Acey Deucey" on June 17th. If you don't know him, please do yourself a favor and check him out. Listen to the live version of "Part of My Life" on his MySpace page. The breakdown he does with "I Like" by Guy?!?! Crazy.
- In case some of you do not know as yet, one of my favorite bands in the world will be gracing NYC with their presence in May. Yes, Mint Condition will be singing for my birthday pleasure on May 29th, 2008 at B.B. King in Times Square. Ok, so my birthday is May 23rd, but I plan to celebrate for the week! Tickets are already on sale and I am sure they will go fast.
- En Vogue was to perform on March 28th at B.B. King as well, however that date has now been changed to August 23rd, 2008.

I know, it's not one of my usual long winded rantings, but it is the introduction to a new project that I have been looking forward to sharing! As I have mentioned previously, my cousin DanaLee and I have embarked on an ambitious project - producing a podcast. Our podcast is called "In NYC" and the name says it all. We will be giving you a weekly dosage of reviews on concerts, parties, clubs, exhibits, plays, restaurants and anything else that we can get ourselves into. So take heed, this is our FIRST show and we tryin ah ting! Sorry, got a little West Indian on ya. : )
