The first annual PLUG LA hit Little Radio Saturday night which also happened to be the coldest night on record for Los Angeles since 1932. Cold weather be damned — the masses turned out in full for a night of great music. Artists on the bill included: Foreign Born, the Gray Kid, Great Northern, and J. Rocc’s Stones Throw “Tribute to J Dilla” DJ Set. Highlights for me were the Foreign Born’s end-of-set rave-up cum revival and J. Rocc’s unbelievable DJ set. Much respect.
Your own Aquarium Drunkard DJ’d three separate sets in between artists. I had a lot of inquiries as to the tracklist so here it is listed below.
The Meters – Handclapping Song ++ Detroit Sex Machines – The Stretch [Edit] ++ Carleen & The Groovers – The Thing ++ The Meters – Keep on Marching (Funky Soldier) ++ Jacques Dutronc – On Nous Cache Tout, On Nous Dit Rien ++ A Tribe Called Quest – Electric Relaxation ++ Caetano Veloso – Alfômega ++ Beastie Boys – And Me ++ Beck – Cellphones Dead ++ TV On The Radio – Staring At The Sun ++ Cold Grits – Its Your Thing ++ Lil’ Lavair & The Fabulous Jades – Cold Heat ++ The Explosions – Hip Drop ++ A Tribe Called Quest – Secenario ++ Clipse – Ride Around Shining ++ Deltron 30 30 – The Fantabulous Rap Extravaganza Part II***
