AKIRA THE DON

So after smashing it at the Spare Rooms last Friday night we’ve been asked to return on a regular basis, so add that to our regular Saturday night at Bootsy Bellows that’s two residencies now. And we start our third, at the relaunching Hooray henry’s next Wednesday. MIDNITEMEN are on track, on point, and primed for a hostile takeover of LA nitelife. SPLASH.

This week has been very very wavy. We played a private airport on Monday…

…shot our genesis video on Tuesday…

INVISIBLE MIDNITEGANG

…Wade hired staff for his new club on Wednesday, and we ran into Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd, whose No Flex Zone we remixed way back in May before anyone had heard of them(apart from those soothsaying Southern Hospitality geniuses)…

ATD X SWAE LEE

 

…I later hung out with Grant and Kristan Morrison at Meltdown, whose owner it transpired ran the comic shop from True Romance. Also Kristan hipped me to the crazy phenomenon that is Demi Moore’s Bush, which was kind of emotional…

Grant Morrison Works Very Hard

…I walked 5 miles from Hollywood to Echo Park to see Gruff Rhys’ movie and watch him play a perfect, beautiful, emotional and highly edumacational set on Thursday…

BOOM BIP X GRUFF X EDUMACATI

…started work on a huge record with a Swedish Pop Star this afternoon…

SWEDISH POP

…and tonight we will play our second night at The Spare Rooms upstars at The Roosevelt.

None of this has left much time for blogging, but I endeavour to write something substantial for you soon.

STAY WAVY BABY.

LOVE

FROM

DON

Typically amazing stuff from two fiths of Big Bang, who seem to have swapped braid wigs for this beautiful neon outing.

I saw Ranking Roger on Saturday at Croissant Neuf after we played. Dude was BRILLIOR. Played loads of awesome tunes off of an Ipad and performed a bunch of his own tings, including an Andrew WK-solo-show-esque version of this.

TechCrunch reports:

If you’ve been to San Francisco in the past few months, you’ll know that the entire city is plastered with iPad advertisements. The situation is even more out of control now that it’s WWDC week and thousands of Apple developers are in from out of town. So one rogue group of artists decided to have a little fun.

The group Freedom From Porn has been going all around the city and altering the iPad ads to add a little porn to them. To be clear, these aren’t really explicit additions, instead, they’re more subversive. For example, see the Steve Jobs’ Facebook page below.

The group, which has this blog, is apparently doing this because they think Jobs’ take that the App Store should befree of porn is crap.

Anyone out there on the streets still seeing these or has Apple managed to take them all down?

Be sure to check out the video below.

Props to TheAlScott.
