Jam With Jah

Yesterday's Monster Island block party was a huge success and not because it was written up in the Times! Plein aire vibes, wine-cheeseburgers and crucial music. When Jam Division (featuring Chris of Jah Division, Kayrock of Roxy Paine and others) opened their set with dissonant-dubby-experimentation, four sundress-n-heels ladies turned their backs and approached the bbq. Requesting hot dogs, one remarked how every time she comes to Brooklyn she hears the worst music and wants to hang herself. Sounds sexy, huh? Jam Division continued to blaze fatalist renditions of surfy rock with Big A little a, Robot Death Cult, and Golden Triangle slaying the crowd in the shorey!

Photographer/film-maker Michael Halsband dropped off copies of Surf Movie and Surf Book. Movie documents the ins-n-outs of Joel Tudor's ability with cameos by Wayne Lynch, Slater, Jack Johnson, Beau Young and a beautifully meditative score by Richard Fortus. Book is a photographic collection of surfing luminaries as curated by Tudor and his love of history. Tom Morey behind the kit, Bud Browne from the porch, George Downing in color...

On the subject of serious kine kulture, Studio One/Sip A Cup singer Judah Eskender Tafari will be at the Leopard Lounge 2Nite backed by the Black Redemption Sound System, featuring Ras Kush, King Alpha, and Dubstar.
