I slacked a bit, but here’s what’s going on this week. At first I thought it was going to be a slow week, until i actually looked at the schedule.

RIP H.R. Giger.

Hello, Hello. Get excited to see one oddball of a film. I am going to give some really obvious hints here as to the what movie we are watching, but I can’t advertise what it’s going to be. Sorry.

What is a movie interruption? Similar to Mystery Science Theater 3000, or other series popping up around the country like, Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption or Master Pancake in Austin. We are going to watch a movie, a fantastical movie and we are going to make comments and jokes over top of it. It’s super fun, but only 4 of us will have microphones.

The film will start after 8, probably 8:20ish, but I will be doing an introduction starting at 8, some BIG PRIZES will be given away to a lucky few. GAMES, we’ll play some movie games and physical challenges. FREE BEER; for members of the Bayardstown Social Club.

ALSO: We will be grilling ZARDOGZ starting at 7:15. This is the big clue to what the film is.

GOLD SERIES :: every Friday at Round Corner Cantina

Reppin the Golden Era of Hip-Hop.

Headlining act Large Professor is up next with special guest Selecta (celebrating his 41st born-day) and local resident DJ Bamboo on Friday May 16th. .

$5 cover after 10PM
$5 Champagne special 9pm-2am

Large Professor, also known as Large Pro and Xtra P, is a New York City-based hip hop record producer and emcee. Large Professor is so involved with the history of hip-hop, it’s almost impossible to separate the two. He is also best known as a founding member of the influential underground hip hop group Main Source, and as mentor and frequent collaborator of Nas. He rapped and produced on Tribe’s Midnight Marauders, and co-crafted the sound of Illmatic. The list goes on: Kool G, Kane, Slick, Busta, Common. Whatever L.P. touches seems destined to become classic and through it all, like rap itself, this Queens auteur continues to push the movement forward. His third solo album Professor @ Large takes the Prof’s beloved boom-bap and reinvents it for a new school of students and practitioners alike.

Each year, Morose and Macabre’s House of Oddities brings together artists from around the country to take part in The Atrocity Exhibition, a bizarre night of performance and art that tells a horribly wonderful story. This years Exhibition is entitled “Museum of Dreams” and they invite you to experience a place that rests deep within slumber where the Sandman plays the curator of the Boogeyman’s collection of night terrors.
“We create a 360 degree living art installation with the most talented people we know” says Macabre Noir, co-founder of the event.

The Atrocity Exhibition is noted for its mix of unusual sideshow, cabaret, burlesque, and performance art, as well as its Artisan Market that features one of a kind handmade art for those of a darker sensibility.

We are proud to welcome PITTSBURGH TRACK AUTHORITY for their debut night as Hot Mass residents! And PTA is proud to bring you an artist that has been in the works for Pittsburgh for almost a decade:

RECLOOSE (New Zealand)

It all started in the spring of 1997 when Detroit native Matthew Chicoine, aka Recloose, made contact with techno pioneer Carl Craig by way of a legendary ‘demo-on-rye sandwich’. This fateful meeting led to the signing of Recloose to Craig’s seminal Planet E label and the birth of an eclectic and vibrant musical career.

Recloose’s musical roots trace back to eight years of studying music and playing jazz saxophone, later shifting his focus to the art of collecting and mixing vinyl while at the University of Michigan. His eclectic DJ sets, which were first heard on Ann Arbor’s WCBN, have led him to become an in-demand DJ, playing at clubs and festivals around the world as well as performing as a turntablist for both Carl Craig’s Innerzone Orchestra and the more esoteric Uri Caine ensemble.

Over his fifteen year career Recloose has developed into a true standout of Detroit’s musical litter. To date he has released a number of groundbreaking 12”s for Planet E and Rush Hour, a host of remixes for the likes of Funkadelic, Herbert, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Tei Towa, Dennis Coffey, MJ Cole and Azymuth, a live album, and three full-length LPs debuting with ‘Cardiology’‚ on Planet E / !K7 in 2002, greeted with wide critical acclaim.
