No new show this week, kiddies, in honor of labor day.

You've got Monday off, so there's even more reason for you kids in DC to check out Stylus new-and-improved Syngery (3.0 version) at The Sanctuary tonight (8/29) and at Saki on Sunday, opening for DJ ?uestlove!

Okay... everyone who doesn't know that I'm spinning at SAKI with DJ ?uestlove, please raise your hands.

*scurries about the room handing out late passes*

It's fine, really. Do not hang your head. Just bring an open mind and a willingness to groove. We will make it all better.

Also, look to the right of this page. Yes indeedy feed the needy, Synergy is back! DC's Sanctuary has been kind enough to invite us in for a set on the last Friday of every month. That means no more struggling to hang out in the middle of the week. That means a new home for the progressive people that have been squeezed out by U Street gentrification. That means a spot with actual dance space, PLUS it has a 2nd floor that allows for the chilling and fellowship that was a hallmark of my Rendezvous set.

Can't beat that with a stickball bat.

Some other news you can use:

- buy this jont. It's kinda fresh. Big up the Salvadoran massive.

- District Soul is taking over Five again this Saturday.

- check out Ben N Mo for the H.E.R. hip-hop event on Sundays. The whole Lo-Budget fam (Cy Young, Kev Brown, Critically Acclaimed, Oddisee) will be there this week. Check out some underground hip-hop, then slide over to SAKI to see me, then your Labor Day Weekend is complete. Big up Abby & Laura.

- Priest da Nomad's new shit is REDICULOUS. Y'all just gonna have to wait though. Maybe we can get some exclusive leakage.

Sorry, boys and girls-- no new show this past week. I could be timely and topical, citing the Blaster virus, the blackout, or maybe even the West Virginia sniper as causes of the show not airing, but those would all be lies... Honestly, we just got locked out of the studio (maybe one day, the station folk'll entrust with a key)... If you're really fiending, check out the Media section of Under the "Live Mixes" header, you'll find a classic show from a while back... Hope that fills the void 'til the next time.

Yaay! Donell got the boot!

My favorite NFL team seems like they're well on their way to another atrocious season.... If they would just drop that racial slur of a team name, the bad kharma that undoubtedly contributes to their being worse and worse every year might take a positive turn...

I mean, look at the local NBA team. No one was even offended by the "Bullets" name, but Pollin thought the name had a negative connotation considering the violent rep of DC's mean streets, and changed the name to the "Wizards" without even being asked to, and just look at how much better that team... has... gotten... Never mind.

Special thanks to last week's guest, DJ Ragz; We turned the wheels over to him last week, and he definitely held it down... Here's the playlist:

Is the media really gonna go "O.J." with the Kobe case? What happened to the fourth estate's 9/12-era "re-focus" on real news? The attacks and the aftermath gave the news outlets the opportunity to get away from all the silly crap that they'd been passing off as news, and for a minute at least, curtailed the mentality of turning every little scandal into the new story of the century. Now look at 'em-- How soon they forget.

Um, I should probably get off the soapbox and just run the freakin' playlist...
