This is What I Want

ThatKellieGirl is elated to hear new music from the DMV’s own Ne’a Posey.   Posey’s debut album, “This is What I Want Vol. 1″, is soulful, sassy and keeps you wanting more from the singer and songwriter.  Posey is the first artist released under the Suite 301  record label, another arm of LilSoSo Productions.  Suite 301 aims to highlight and feature the musical talents of artists in the Maryland area.  

Congratulations to Ne’a Posey and many more blessings to come! :-)

Hey Good People!

This Saturday, The Axel F Party is celebrating its One Year Anniversary Party.  The brainchild of DJs Jahsonic, Stylus and Adrian Loving, Axel F (named after Eddie Murphy’s character from Beverly Hills Cop) is about the illest jheri curl funk, champagne soul and lazer boogie cuts from 1977 – 1987.  In addition to a killer ’80s setlist, there will be live performances by the Sexual Chocolate Band & Show (think Murphy’s character Randy Watson from Coming to America) featuring Zo!, Deborah Bond, Phonte, Ne’a Posey, and N’digo Rose.  Yeah, it’s going to be like that!

Freedom Friday: The Happy Holidays Edition

Happy Holidays Good Folks!

Let the holiday parties begin! :-) 

I am sooo looking forward to the hustle and bustle of holiday festivities.  Now, I don’t get into holiday shopping.  I actually try to avoid it by purchasing earlier in the year or on-line. However, if I need to buy a gift, I totally avoid the mall and head to local small businesses.   However, for me, the holiday season is about connecting and reconnecting with friends and loved ones.  I usually try to “set things right” before entering into the New Year.  I also take the time to give thanks and to celebrate my accomplishments for the year.    So whatever you do, don’t allow the holidays to become stressful or overwhelming for you. Figure out how you are going to live in the moment in order to fully enjoy the holiday season.     

Sending a shout out to the Alphas for their 105th Founder’s Day.  There are celebrations going on Saturday at Mood Lounge and Teatro

Othello closes out this weekend at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

And the holidays would not be complete without these classic Christmas plays.  The Washington Ballet performs The Nutcracker at the Warner Theater from December 1-24 and  A Christmas Carol is playing at the Ford’s Theater until December 31.

Enjoy your weekend!

Peace and Blessings, ThatKellieGirl

Freedom Friday: The Independence Edition

Y’all ready for that long Fourth of July weekend?!  I am sure am. I know there are some of you out there who might not prescribe to celebrating the Fourth of July.  And I can respect your right to do this.    However you define your independence, it is important that we understand this complex history of these United States of America.  We are inextricably connected to this country, so we must learn from the past in order to  make this country even better. 

For those of you on the prowl for something to do, here some spots that will be jumping this weekend.

I love parades!  It started back when I was a young girl growing up in Ohio.  I always loved floats and the pomp and circumstance of the marching.  So, I am going to check out the America’s National Independence Day Parade taking place on July 4th.  This annual parade consists of invited bands, fife and drum corps, floats, military and specialty units, giant balloons, equestrian, drill teams, VIP’s, national dignitaries, and celebrity participants.

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival kicked off last week.  This year, the festival will feature the cultures of Mexico and Asian Pacific Americans.   The goal of the festival is to strengthen and preserve these traditions by presenting them on the National Mall. Tradition-bearers and the public can connect with and learn from one another and, in a respectful way, begin to understand cultural differences and similarities.

For me, the crowning event of the weekend will be the Silhouette Brown performance.  It will be their first DC performance ever!  Hosted by The District Diva, Ne’a Posey, the night will feature an opening performance by Selective Intelligence.

2000black Records features artist Silhouette Brown with a new dimension in modern Jazz/“Nu soul” music, warm subtleties of HipHop and London flair. The highly anticipated LP titled “two” (released February 8th, 2010) follows up its well received and self-titled album “Silhouette Brown”. “two” is available on cd and digitally here, and iTunes with promotions from Giant Step and OkayPlayer.

Silhouette Brown resides in the US and emerges from the ranks of London’s musical hub. Produced by the trilogy that is Dego (2000black/4hero), Kaidi Tatham (2000black/Agent K/Bugz In The Attic) and co-writing/production talents of Bembe Segue, Silhouette Brown is currently joined by the unmistakable vocal sounds of Philadelphia’s Lady Alma.
