GOODCOMPANY at Neo-Crocker2015

fantasticnegriot

This Saturday, DJ Druskee and I are bringing GOODCOMPANY sound to Sacramento’s Crocker Art Museum for Neo-Crocker 2015. Neo-Crocker is the city’s premier modern culture event and is being headlined this year by blues/soul artist Fantastic Negrito. I saw him play at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco yesterday and the guy is definitely on the cusp of blowing up. Tickets start at $40 and are available at crockerartmuseum.org.

Neon Noir (Deluxe) on Okayplayer!

“Genre bending Sacramento-bred duo DLRN bka Sean LaMarr and Jon Reyes made a splash with the debut of their full-length Neon Noir (Deluxe) LP. Brooding and bright, the project landed at the close of September chock full of joints. The tracks share a wavy electro undercurrent that punctuates the candid verses chronicling the highs and lows of DLRN’s journey to the fore. Stepping firmly outside of the traditionalist box, DLRN hits the reboot button and pushes the envelope with a collection propelled by tight flows, raw emotion and the spacious production at the core of each track.”

Kind words from the good folks at OKP. A dream come true.

GOODCOMPANY at Dive Bar Sacramento

CMNhbEAUcAA6eFN

GOODCOMPANY is wrapping up a 2 week-residency at Dive Bar in Sacramento on Friday night. Last week I had a solo shift. The place was packed and had mermaids swimming in the aquarium above the bar. This week, Druskee is back from SF’s Outside Lands Festival and will be joining me for one of our infamous back to back sets.

For the uninitiated, GOODCOMPANY is the name of the travelling party hosted by Druskee and myself. Occasionally it’s a day party w/ DJ Epik, Mooselini The Soul Facist, and Drewbacca the Hairless Wookie. Regardless of the format, GOODCOMPANY is a zero-fucks, better wear your dancing shoes, gonna end up making new friends dance party which celebrates music to make you feel good.

SN&R Recap of Sister Crayon, DLRN & Stevie Nader

This week’s issue of alt-weekly Sacramento News & Review featured a recap of last Saturday’s show with Sister Crayon and Stevie Nader. SN&R’s Janelle Bitker writes:

“Stevie Nader and DLRN split an opening set, backed by DJ Druskee and drummer Omar Gonzalez-Barajas. DLRN’s Sean Lamarr, impressed by the sizeable crowd of folks rocking out early, issued a thanks: “I bet you guys didn’t come here for hip-hop.”

That wasn’t entirely accurate, though, given the rich hip-hop influences on Sister Crayon’s Devoted. And truly, I can’t think of a better local opener for 2015’s Sister Crayon than Nader and DLRN. Even though Nader and DLRN collaborate all the time, it’s never less special. It’s just a combo that works so well—Nader’s backup vocals on DLRN’s “Fear & Loathing” and Lamarr’s guest slot on Nader’s “Make You” along with rapper Soosh*e created soulful, dynamic breaks from the norm.”
