So, did everyone have a good 420? Us here at Cosign hope you had a great holiday! We sure did, celebrating with Josh Rand, Brain Gang, A.Dd+, and former member of The Cool Kids, Sir Michael Rocks. All of these artists performed at an event put together by TopShelf Shows at Club Dada called Higher Learning Part Deux. Aside from all of these dope artists performing, there was live glass blowing! I’m talking flames, glass, and pipe-making. This was definitely one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen happen at an event in Dallas. The way these dudes formed all the pipes was too entertaining. This was also a great way to give the event a 420 vibe, despite everyone relaxing with their herbs and kicking it to good music. One of our contributing writers, Vanessa Quilantan, was also there doing nails, designing little pot leafs and 420 related things onto nails! If you guys didn’t know, homegirl is a G at nail designs so if you need any type of nail work done, get at her!
Coolbeings artist, Josh Rand, had a great performance, giving us a taste of some new tracks you might not have heard yet. Don’t forget, this thuggin’ youngin’ has a mixtape releasing June 5th titled Let ‘Em Flow! This will be crucial to have on your playlist. Brain Gang and A.Dd+ did their thing too, of course. You can always expect a great set from both of those groups. Sir Michael Rocks came onto the stage shortly after A.Dd+ and swagged out. He performed some tracks from Lap of Lux, which got the crowd pretty hype. I personally was standing next to some girls that absolutely lost themselves, screaming and freaking out. Dallas showed nothing but love to this man and rocked with him throughout his whole set…or until the venue workers pulled the plug on sound. I guess 2 AM came too quick! Fans were screaming, “Acapella! Acapella!” But the venue wasn’t agreeing and the show had to end. All in all, Higher Learning Part Deux was a success!
We appreciate TopShelf Shows having us out and allowing us to vend some pre-release issues of the new issue. If you weren’t able to make it to this event or just wasn’t able to cop your issue while you were there, be sure to be at the Official Release Party this Saturday, April 27th, at Nerv Gallery in Dallas. The event is free! DJ Blue will be throwing some chill vibes in the mix and you know there will be drinks. We’ll have new issues on deck, a regular edition and a deluxe edition. The deluxe edition will include a copy of A.Dd+’s DiveHiFlyLo CD. So come on out and kick it with us!
