Incoming: Boiler Room Headliner, Stones Throw Showcase
By Apr 19, 2016 Nightlife
Well, after much hype, wonder, and ambivalence, we've finally heard through the grapevine who the headliner for the China debut of music videocast series Boiler Room is going to be for Sunday, May 1...

Black Coffee, a house producer from Johannesburg.

Hmmmm… yeah. Really? Does Shanghai really need more house music? Maybe that's a teaser, and the real headliner is Prince, or AC/DC fronted by Axl Rose, or David Bowie back from the dead, or…just anyone more relevant.

Again, this is a rumor. Not confirmed. Don't freak out.

Moving on to a way, way more exciting booking is LA hip hop label Stones Throw's 20-year anniversary showcase at The Shelter on May 6. Peep the lineup:


Bing: Peanut Butter Wolf, founder of Stones Throw, who played an insanely memorable set at Shelter a few years ago.

Bang: Egyptian Lover, master of the 808, old-school party-rocker, super nice guy.

Boom: Earl Sweatshirt, the young, much-hyped rapper who started out with the Odd Future crew and has already dropped two great full length albums at the age of 22.

Ka-pow: Knxwledge, hip hop producer who's made beats for Kendrick Lamar and many more.

Can't wait for that one. More news as we get it.
