today's show (or rather back to back two WFMU shows with Mr Fine Wine) are coming live from GOOD RECORDS in the East Village and they wrap up the three part series of PTNOTR shows - live remotes from Manhattan.....Today's guest will include Johnny Paycheck and Azeem and some others (with dank) and will be dedicated to MCA/Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys - Rest In Peace

Preformed by Champion Slam Poet, Azeem
Urban Legend Breaks The Stage

Champion Slam Poet and Bay Area Hip Hop legend Azeem presents his One Man Show- RUDE at the Bowery Poetry Club May 15, 2012 @ 8pm.

East Bay Express which once crowned Azeem "Best of the Bay -Hip Hop Artist" says, Rude "is intense, revelatory, transcendent, brilliant, poignant, and tragic."
The SF Bay Guardian writes-"Its combination of raw energy, deft delivery, beautifully honed characters, and inspired narrative flow was so transporting - I actually lost my hang-over!"
Oakland Post confides, "Anyone who claims to love contemporary theater and does not go is committing sacrilege."

Consider a reunion with dead entertainers, a comical alien abduction where the universe is simply Gods Rolex, and you might be able guess what's coming next. The audience is quickly transported into a world where, Demetrius has a spirit child in his hand, the white kids with dreads are starting the revolution, and televisions are manufactured to watch people back.

RUDE- May 15, 2012 @ 7pm.
@ the Bowery Poetry Club
308 Bowery New York NY,10012

Not very hip hop of me, I know, but I still love "Egg Raid on Mojo" and the whole Pollywog Stew EP. Shouts to you and Mr. Finewine, Billy!
Avatar 7:21pm Billy Jam:

Man I love this music so much - and I love life so much - and today with the passing of MCA / Adam Yauch just drove home the point even more that this is it - we could, any of us, go at any moment so let's live life to the fullest goddamit and put the needle on the record and bring that beat back -----
  7:25pm other david:

RIP MCA. I agree, live life to the fullest. But if MCA was right, he'll be back soon via reincarnation. So at least his essence will continue to be around.
