Kane Mayfield at Mobtown Studios

“Round of applause for my lust!” -Kane Mayfield at Mobtown Studios

Last week I went to one of Mobtown Studios‘ “microshows” for my homie Kane Mayfield.  It’s a great idea really.  Kane invited some press and close friends and recorded the whole thing with a live band.  The result of which will be a live album of songs that we’ve heard and ones that have never been released.  Kane really used the small, intimate space to have fun and let his comedian side shine, speaking directly to some audience members by name and calling on everyone to partake in some of the free drinks they provided.  Kane is one of the biggest personalities I know and the small room we were in could barely contain him.  He moved around as much as he could, sneering and smiling to accentuate his lyrics in an almost musical play-like performance.  It was a really relaxed atmosphere which allowed for a lot of interplay between Kane and the folks that came to watch.  I’m really interested to see how it translates to the live album.

Photos From The Ottobar Show

Here are a number of photos from this past Saturday’s show at Ottobar.  Unfortunately the battery ran out in the camera after my set so we don’t have any pics of Soul Cannon or A Cool Stick which sucks.  We did get some nice shots of The Five One though and my younger sister was nice enough to take a number of good shots of my performance.  As I told the crowd, I was the only artist that night rocking without a band so I asked them for their energy.  They definitely held me down singing along with hooks as my voice seemed go mid set.  I got some water and was able to finish strong and was really happy with the night overall.  Impulse had my backs on the ones and twos and Harvey Dent was DJing all night between acts.  He kept it moving with some great Hip Hop and I think everyone in the house had a blast.  Soul Cannon definitely showed why they’re known as one of the best live acts in Baltimore.  They totally rocked the house! Thanks to A Cool Stick for asking me to rock and thanks to everyone who came out!
