    I saw him a few years ago, in a bar attached to a liquor store in Kentucky. He did a medley of choruses and rapped over top of his own recordings as if nobody has the instrumentals any more, and they handed out cookies and chess pies from the stage.

    But hey, Time? Astonishing! is pretty good
    And so was Idea of a Master Piece

    Yea, really digging the music banter here. I mean, it's not my fave genre of music, but I definitely get really into one act or another, every 5yrs or so. That first Skepta vid @Find Finn posted was f'n great. I also liked Devlin's simple skin/hard mod look.

    Do you speak French? I could never get into it simply because I don't know what they are saying. It's hard to appreciate lyricism when it's essentially gibberish, my sister-in-law always tried to get me on to Brazillian rappers too but I understand very little portuguese so same deal.

    back in the day he'd hand out fried chicken and, iirc from what i've heard, juice boxes. i saw him around 2008--same story w/ the medley of choruses and rapping over his recordings, which is not that uncommon in rap. My sister ended up onstage at that show at one point.

    fun Kool Keith story: 2008 wasn't the first time I went to see him. He came to the Cat's Cradle back in 1999. It was my first concert, and my mom, who drove me there, told me I had to leave by midnight because that was as late as she would stay up to come pick me up. Well, like every hip hop show I've seen since then at the Cradle, the opener (who was DJ Spooky) went on late, around 10, and then after his set, around 10:45, people would come onstage every once in a while and yell "are you ready to see Kool Keith?" but then they would go back offstage and Keith wouldn't come out. Around 11:30, as I was getting pretty nervous about how much show I was gonna see here, a miced voice from somewhere, sounding a lot like Keith himself, yelled "are you ready for Kool Keith?" So that was exciting, but after that Keith still didn't get on the stage. The hype-up yelling offstage happened intermittently as it became 11:45, 11:55... midnight came and went, and I held out until around 12:15 before leaving. He still hadn't come onstage.

    Years later I was interviewing the guy who runs the Cradle, and I asked him about that night. He told me that Keith was backstage counting his money, and he would lose his place and start the count over, while, indeed, occasionally yelling into a microphone.

    Will be in New York (city) 1/2-1/6. Anything I should do while I'm there? Going with my girlfriend and her family. She owns a bakery so we're doing a bakery tour apparently (preordered cronuts already). And I imagine we'll be eating well so food recs and bar recs would be great, and I believe we'll be staying in Manhattan but not exactly sure where yet.

    NYC bar recommendations:

    I'm sure things have changed a lot, but my top three cocktail bars (if I had limited time would check out just these three) were angel's share, death and co, and dead rabbit (definitely get an Irish coffee here downstairs as you wait to get upstairs).

    But my go to bar was attaboy. Spent a lot of time and money in that place. It's run by two guys. One of them is the dude that invented the penicillin at the old milk and honey. It's one of those bars that don't even have vodka. It's a nice pretty chill space and tons of noodle/dumpling options around for the post drinking munchies.

    There's a decent bourbon bar called Maysville in the flatiron district. They had rare current bottles and rare old bottles but prices tended to be high. If you're in Chinatown (especially if you're staying nearby for cronuts) I would definitely go to apotheke (I forget what the policy is but make reservations). Also Maison Premiere in Williamsburg is one of the top absinthe bars in the world. Drink some Jade Nouvelle Orleans if you can. Was chatting with bartenders in absinthe bars in Ginza and they were quite ecstatic about their experience there.

    make sure to check out beermenus. Hill farmstead makes frequent appearances around the city. Also check out torst in Williamsburg for some evil twin beers and make a reservation at luskus. I think it's a fairly priced tasting menu. Also other half in Brooklyn makes some pretty tasty IPAs (the one made with galaxy hops is a favorite).

    If you're going to be in Brooklyn anyways Id also see if you get find some goodies at drinkupny and BQE

    Just realized how much of an alcoholic I am.
