This past Friday night, we made our way over to 7th street entry for Fort Wilson Riot and Pononono’s split release show. The night also featured Holidae and Aaron Rice, adding to what we thought to be a stacked night for music. The evening couldn’t have gone better, with each performance building energy up until the final encore by Fort Wilson Riot. Feel free to view some pics below and continue to stay tuned for more from the above bands.

Vic Mensa recently took the stage at the mtvU Woodie Awards, during this year’s SXSW Music Festival; to perform his new single “Feel That”. Vic is usually known for his lyrical prowess and complex rhyme schemes so it’s nice to see the kid let loose on this track. Don’t get him wrong, Vic is one of the game’s most talented up and comers with an ability to cater to the hardcore & the mainstream at the same time.
