So if you’re familiar with the shop, then you would know we love rap. We also love to support the independent. Whether it be brands, musicians, or artists, it’s this stepping out of the box (with a quality outcome) and doing their own thing vibe that’s few and far between these days. Alexander Spit is one of those people. To put it plainly, dude’s killing it. Who’s Alexander Spit you ask? Well if you’re familiar with The Hundreds, you may have seen him at their L.A. flagship store, or promoted heavily on their blog. He’s the one we’ve always got playing in the shop, when you all ask “Who is this? This is fucking sick!”…and for good reason. With his third release, “These long Strange Nights” just released on Oct. 27, it’s safe to say this Bay Area/RSWD local is planting his feet firmly with no intention of going away anytime soon. Our good buddy, Koki over at Hollars-Dollars just dropped an interview with the man himself, discussing his life, influences, and inspirations. You can check that interview out HERE. Spit’s “These Long Strange Nights” can be downloaded for free HERE. and for any of his older releases, if you’re still un-familiar can be found HERE or HERE or watch some of his videos HERE. So I think we’ve got you pretty covered on what you should be listening to for a while…Get familiar Calgary!
I dont think I really need to say much more than if you aren’t here tonight, then you’re seriously blowing it at life. If you came to the last one, you know it’s gonna be a banger. If you decided not to come to the last one, I have no idea what the fuck you were thinking. See you all tonight. CHONG LI! CHONG LI! CHONG LI!
In case you haven’t heard or have yet to pick up your ticket, Ice Cube will be hitting Calgary on April 15th at Flames Central. The show is being held by our good homies over at Dubsac so it will be a guarantied good time. Tickets are available at the new Groupseven so swing by and grab them early before the show sells out!!
