K-Os & Bedouin Soundclash!
Went to see these two great artists perform live at the Sound Academy this past weekend. The opening band, Dirty Mags, was pretty good in my opinion. They were a more heavy sound, but still fun. They weren’t getting the best reaction but that’s cause these fans weren’t there to see them. Bedouin came next and put on a great performance featuring a lot of their big songs plus one of the sweetest drum solos I have ever seen. K-os made the crowd wait, as the crew set everything up, but when he came out everyone went nuts! He persona on stage is so lively and was a lot of fun to watch, he really put on a great show. He included some of his greatest hits, plus other artists’ big hits and even threw in some freestyling and dancing. Overall it was a great performance. I’m uploading the video of the show to YouTube, I’ll post a link on here once that’s done.
GIVING GOOD SHADE | Dirty Mag Interview
DIRTY HAS A THING FOR TWINS! THIS TIME, WE RENDEZVOUS WITH TWO TWENTY-YEAR-OLD, SELF-TAUGHT AMERICAN ACCESSORY DESIGNERS FROM MINNESOTA, BETTER KNOWN AS COCO AND BREEZY. ROCKING SIX INCH PLATFORMS AND NEON ACCENTS, THE CONFIDENT DUO TURNED HEADS AS THEY GAVE US A SNEAK PEEK AT THEIR UPCOMING SUNGLASSES COLLECTION RAINY DAYS. LIKE SEASONED CELEBRITIES, COCO AND BREEZY EFFORTLESSLY WORK THE CAMERA FOR THEIR CLOSEUP IN FRONT OF THE MUSÉE GALLIERA (MUSEUM OF FASHION). IT’S NO SURPRISE THE THE SISTERS HAVE TAKEN NYC BY STORM SINCE THEIR ARRIVAL TO THE FASHION CAPITAL ONLY A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO (IT SEEMS THE CITY STREETS ATTRACT ATTENTION FOR THE GIRLS, AS THEY QUICKLY BECOME THE MUSE FOR MANY PHOTOGRAPHERS AND DESIGNERS AROUND THE WORLD.) THEIR SHADES HAVE SHIELDED THE FACES OF MANY CELEBRITIES—FROM THE LIKES OF POP ICONS LIKE BEYONCÉ, KELLY OSBOURNE, NICKI MINAJ AND CIARA,TO TENNIS PRODIGY SERENA WILLIAMS. THEY’VE BEEN FEATURED IN VOGUE, ELLE, VIBE, FADER, W, PAPER, and THE NEW YORK TIMES. OUR OUTING WITH COCO & BREEZY CULMINATED IN AN INTERVIEW WHERE WE BROKE BAGUETTES, SAT DOWN FOR A GLASS OF WINE AND UPLIFTING CONVERSATION.
DIRTY: SO, LET’S START OFF WITH THE USUAL QUESTIONS: WHERE ARE YOU LADIES FROM?
BREEZY: We’re originally from Minnesota — the suburbs in Minnesota. It’s a non-fashion state, and we’re definitely outsiders from where we’re from. Everybody wears jeans and t-shirts, and that’s actually what made us create sunglasses. People used to stare at us, laugh at us… No one understood our style, and when we created our eyewear collection, it was only for ourselves. We created it so we could block ourselves away from the world. D: IS IT SUNNY IN MINNESOTA? B: It’s mostly snow. C: Yeah, lots of snow and it’s very cold. B: But we didn’t use [our eyewear] for the sun, we used them for more like… a shade. C: But it was a shade to block people who stared at us. B: We had no idea why people were staring.
