my visit to “Contact High” hip hop photo exhibit at Annenberg CAA 2200 curated by former Palo Alto Arts Commissioner Vikki Tobak, I read about in Rolling Stone.
The fickle computer ate my caption about Carolyn Malachi the DC based hip hop artist, so, in a post modern tactic I am cutpasting my correspondence just today from her agent:
Hey Mr. Weiss.

I’m writing about Carolyn Malachi. I’ve only seen or heard two tracks but I’m impressed. I’m a rock and jazz and blues concert promoter and manager from Palo Alto, near San Francisco. I’m in LA today and saw a photo exhibit on hip hop by Vikki Tobak who used to live in Palo Alto. I don’t do a lot of urban music but I did produce an early Ledisi show under the name Anibade. I booked Boots Riley and The Coup into their first Fillmore show. Plus Ozomatli f/ Chali 2na.
I was researching “East Palo Alto” hip hop and that led to a mastering studio that worked with Greenspan f CM.
Anyhow I’ll spread the word but let me know if she will have a West Coast tour.

ps to the world and probably should set it straight with MaSheva:
When I was friendly with Joe Pagenelli and he was house manager for the Fillmore of Bill Graham presents and was also put in charge of producing or booking the Fillmore sessions of local bands I did recommend to him the Coup featuring boots Riley and purple Pam and I also recall I had his phone number which I think will Bernard gave me and the number of his manager Mr. Ellis back in Baltimore so I might’ve spoken to and maybe I mentioned to Mr. Ellis that I recommended to Mr. Paganelli the show And I went to the show and even bought a pro Palestinian T-shirt and told boots who I was and what I had done what I had claimed to have done
