Being from a city where there’s more then enough talent but not enough togetherness it was exciting to see the good folks of Abstract Thought and Ed Brown put on a music showcase with the new generation of artist this past Saturday at The Arts Garage. The show was called “New Triton” meaning great music and talent is essential to our bodies, minds and souls. I was fashionably late so I missed the artist Bones, R&B artist Beano and Rapper/Producer Dannie Phantom but I walked in just in time to see Chase Allen ripping the stage with his Kanye-esque cockiness. Next up was a R&B group U City. I heard great things about them and was pleased to finally see the dynamic duo perform.
Singer/song writer Corey Latif Williams took the stage with his rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” along with two of his other songs that had the ladies in a daze. The last star in the making was Chill Moody, some call him “West Chilly” referring to his new album and where he resides. His energy set the crowd up for the Kid and Play style after-party. The array of diverse and talented artists was a great event for the city and the music was definitely “New Tritious”.
