People were very excited to see the Biebs (and Chris Brown) at BETX Fan Fest yesterday.

Well, it is a classic.
 
The #Seattle Symphony celebrated a #90s classic over the weekend when it performed a rendition of "Baby Got Back" complete with an appearance by none other than Sir Mix-a-Lot himself. Check out the video here; you just might be surprised how good it sounds accompanied by strings. http://bit.ly/1oFJP7v

After more than a decade, +Elton John is coming back to #LosAngeles  for a show at the #STAPLESCenter : http://bit.ly/U9GTFk

The Rocket Man has been stacking up hits left and right for decades and decades, so his "All the Hits" #tour  promises to be a real show-stopper.

One of the few times I've thought, "I wish I lived in New York."
 
+Radio City Music Hall hosts a three-night concert series June 24-26 featuring Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier, Janelle Monae and The Roots. The awesome thing about these concerts is that none of these artists are the headliner. If not any of them, then who? None other than one of our favorite comedians of all time, Dave Chappelle. http://bit.ly/1k3x2dn

3 Stacks is going to make a pretty good Hendrix.
On the Mt. Rushmore of guitar rock gods, Jimi Hendrix's head would be prominent. If you need a reminder of what he brought to the table...

Jill Scott was amazing as always and my first time seeing Maxwell live.

Maxwell and Jilly from Philly were touring together a few years ago, him opening for her. I saw him for the first time live at this performance at MSG. He has a great stage show. Very charming.

Did you share your wedding pictures with #justintimberlake   because your immediate family and friends refused to look at them any more? #notabadlovestory   
How long does it take to create a social video? If you're Justin Timberlake, only about 10 days. Just under two weeks ago, Timberlake...

Wrote this yesterday. Still interested in celebrating her life and works today.
 
Rest in peace, #MayaAngelou . Your thoughtful words of inspiration will be remembered for generations to come. The poet was found dead in her Winston-Salem home today, she was 86. http://bit.ly/1kh6gK1

I want Sia to tour even if I never see her face.
 
#Music  star #Sia  blew away the audience of the #TheEllenShow  with her off-kilter, yet hauntingly effective performance of #Chandelierhttp://bit.ly/1vNUpg0

It got us wondering, could she perform an entire #tour  with such a creative slant?

Story

editorial and content strategy, AXS.com
Introduction
I'm an LA based married black guy (to this chick) who talks a lot about music, tv, New Orleans, social issues, and what's going on on these internet streets.

 Jason leads teams that make entertaining things that most often live in digital places - online, on your phone, in your favorite social network. He's written on a wide variety of topics online, most notably as the second editor of LAist.com and personally at negroplease.com (now defunct), and has spoken at SXSW several times about those efforts. 

I'm passionate about creating the best experiences possible for the core audience and delivering it in a way that is entertaining, efficient, measurable, and, ideally, profitable. Particularly in the kid space.
