New Stuff and Inspiration
This video hails from 1989, from the Beastie Boys‘ album release party of Paul’s Boutique. For a lot of us here at Sukle, this was an important piece of musical history for us, as we all grew up with the Beastie Boys. But the reason this video is so cool, is because a lot of it is almost fly-on-the-wall voyeurism, looking into what it was like to hang out at a rooftop party with some very young Beasties. It’s quite fascinating, although somewhat frustrating since the video and audio are not synced up very well. We’ll blame that on late 90’s recording equipment quality.
Anyway, in the name of sprucing up a mundane Monday and remembering our pal MCA, we thought we’d share something fun. Dig the green vest, too.
Mike D curates Transmissions LA: AV Club.
He raps. He rhymes. He curates art. He’s Mike D!
Famous for his Beastie Boys exploits, Mike D puts on a different hat to head up Mercedes Benz’s Avant/Garde Diaries festival. The show is being called Transmissions LA: AV Club, and it’s a wild sensory ride. He’s invited an assortment of talented contemporary artists to wow viewers with art and food. If we were in LA, we’d be checking this out, for sure.
