Earth People! The Triumphant Return of Dr. Octagon

Monday, June 26th, 2017 by The Professor

by Earl Crown, host of Crucial Cuts on WLOY

On June 4th 2017, Kool Keith (aka Dr. Octagon) came to Baltimore Soundstage with his hip-hop super-group, and reminded us why we loved Dr. Octagon in the first place. His 1996 album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, is considered by many to be among the most important albums of that decade and a must-own LP for any serious fan of the genre. With the help of producer and DJ Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, as well as world-class turntablist DJ Qbert, Octagon was able recreate the genius of his groundbreaking 1996 album on stage.

The Dr. Octagon tour features an all-star stage band, with a live drummer and bass player, along with two DJs, the aforementioned Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert. The set list for the Baltimore Soundstage show included many tracks from the Dr. Octagonecologyst album, including “3000”, “Earth People” and “Bear Witness”. The appreciative crowd got especially wild for “Blue Flowers,” a fan-favorite from the 1996 release. (more…)

Pretty Don amazing: Don Broco Live

Thursday, May 11th, 2017 by Margaret Jokoh

The British rock band, Don Broco, has been around since 2008, but have just embarked on their first US tour. Aside from having the pleasure of interviewing the band, I had the opportunity of seeing them live at Baltimore Soundstage.

Anyone who knows Baltimore, knows that the music fans of the city are very hard to please, especially the pop punk scene, who have seen acts like Modern Baseball, All Time Low and many more jump off to headlining acts at major festivals and their own tours. And to be honest, Don Broco is definitely the odd ball out when looking at the bill. They are lined up with bands like: With Confidence, Against the Current and State Champs. Fortunately, there were a few fans there, but Don Broco definitely had a challenge ahead of them. (more…)

This week as a special Easter treat, we get not one, but TWO hours of chatting and spinning time with Jaime and Julie from Sweet Leda. The Professor chatted with the pair (bass & vocals) about what’s in the water in Pasadena, who they love, and just what kind of horror film they scored. They brought some of their (and our) favorite local albums, and talked about the process of recording their own latest piece of vinyl Let It In.

Studio Seizures run every Monday 7-8pm, except this week it’s 7-9pm with 2 special hours of Sweet Leda!
