Chicagoland hip-hop

The Legendary High North Lothario Crew is Branching Out This Summer!

What’s good y’all? It’s been a minute since any of us has posted anything here, so I wanted to drop everyone a line and let you know what’s going on with your favorite Minneapolis hip-hop band.

Recent shows:
In the last couple of months we played the Fine Line and also the Club Underground — our first new shows with our “new” band. As you know we took some time off, Scotty left us for an exciting career in the culinary arts, and in the time we were off we also lost emcee Cuban Captain America. Both Scotty and the Cube are still close friends of the band, and we wish them well and fully expect to collab with them in the near future.
Both shows went really well, great feedback all around, and we’re itching to get back on in the Twin Cities in the very near future. (Look for something in June in St. Paul possibly…)

Upcoming Shows:
The Loth Crew also has shows planned this summer out of town. Look for us in Mankato on Saturday, June 18th at The Whatsup Lounge with Frozen Tundra. Details to follow soon. (We’ll post a show page as soon as we get all the details…)
Also, Lothario emcee The Ill Pirsona (yours truely) is playing another show with Frozen Tundra, the week before the Mankato show in their hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin at The House of Rock. This show is on Friday, June 10th, which also happens to be my birthday! I will be playing without the band, which is unfortunate, but it will give me an opportunity to play some of the songs from my solo project William’s Wall, and just get back on stage solo style. It’s been almost a year since my last solo performance.
And one last out-of-town show we’re working on — we don’t have a date or venue set yet — but we’ll be playing somewhere in north-central Illinois (DeKalb, Batavia, Aurora, something like that) late-summer with my homie J.U.D. So stay tuned for updates on that one.
We’re going to be looking for some close friends and die-hard fans of the band to travel with us to these shows if at all possible. If we’ve got some heads with us making noise and singing along, it’ll go a long way to getting back into these areas again in the future.

And last but certainly not least, we’ll be in The Northside Underground fine tuning a bunch of our songs for some recording sessions planned for early summer. We’re not sure yet what we’re going to put out, but look for an EP or LP from us late 2011.

So that’s what we’re on right now. Feel free to comment here and let us know what you’re on, show some love, or tell us what you’d like to see us do in the next year.
