Biz Markie to play Babylon, Ottawa Dec 20

Biz Markie is coming to Ottawa soon and will be playing Babylon on Saturday, December 20th. Twenty years after the man born Marcel Hall’s absurdly catchy hip-hop/R&B hybrid Just a Friend conquered the airwaves, it seems Biz Markie is only now set to make his first appearance in Capital City.

“My focus is on viagra pills DJing right now,” Biz reports. “I already did the beatboxing. I did the rap. That was in my younger days.”

This is going to be a great show so if you’re in Ottawa I suggest checking it out. Show starts at 10pm. See you at Babylon!

In my other life, I cover the mobile technology scene, and happened to be in Toronto for Telus’ launch of the BlackBerry Storm. You wouldn’t expect to find one of Canada’s most preeminent bands at such an event, but Stars were there to rock the house and seriously up the cool factor. I was able to snag a few videos before my camera died. You can see the rest after the brand viagra jump, and I’ve posted Stars upcoming shows below.

The NXNE Blog – Day One: Trains, marathon walking, and beer

Bambi – Tired, traveled, and mid-hydration

Bambi here — your fearless blogger — braving the wilds of a downtown hotel’s tv lounge to bring you this post.

I have arrived! Left on the train to Toronto at 8:30am, settled in to the nearly bare train with my laptop and headphones and schemed and scheduled all the great interviews, live show reviews, and networking I’m going to be doing for the next four days. The week’s going to be packed full of things to do and see and hear!

When I arrive, I hailed a cab and drove twenty minutes to my lodgings — a $10 cab ride! I’m amazed by that… in Ottawa that would have been at least $30. Dropped my stuff off in my room and ventured back out on the town to check out the venues and to time how long it took me to get from one to the next. It was a lot of walking but was totally doable. Not many other cities can boast scenes like Toronto can!

I ended Day One with a cold beer with friends and a tour via car of the venues I hadn’t yet located in my treasure hunt.

Day Two begins at… 2am! Yep, that’s right! I’ll be back out again at 2am to see White Cowbell Oklahoma at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern! Though not Canadian (though many members are), they’re rocking the kickoff NXNE show and I absolutely love these guys, so I’ll be there front row centre – will you?

Stay tuned for more blog updates, live reviews, video interviews, podcasts, and tonnes more. And be sure to keep up to date with our Flickr feed, too!

The origin of Timekode is in the bytes that began travelling through samplers and drum machines in the early eighties. MIDI timecode is the data that keeps sample loops, filtered basslines and drum hits moving in unison – it’s the glue that holds together a culture based on pulling together bits of the past to make the sounds of the future.
