As you know the Retar Crew STORMED our nation's capitol this past Thursday. It was vinyle, it was vintage and it was victorious. The long awaited post is here, and here, dear, is a quick clip of the talented crew arriving befoer their show and white house visit that Friday. I was along for it all. They arrive!
This is the type of clip which equates to a fans dream , just kicking it at your pad with your favorite musicians.
4 Mikes . This next clip is hilarious and goes to the very heart and soul of our beloved Re-Tar's. Ok, so the spot, the Marx cafe, a venue JQ sold on the fly, a venue i don't think was every prepared for this type of act. We had 50 people there, and wham, first crisis hits, the spot only has 1 mike, shit! It's a 4 man act, what to do? GQ was steamed, I tried to keep it positive thinking they played a liquor store over my bachelor weekend in Chi, couldn't have been worse than that, right? However as you'll hear, even at the Liquor store they had 4 fucking mikes.
And with 1 mike there would be no show. So what do you do in a situation like this? I was in the Retar huddle and as panic set in, the first star, and at times, strongest drunk, stepped up. In a crew everyone proves their mantle on certain days and in a variety of ways. And GQ shined, he picked up the mike, and made a plea to the crowd. Hey Ya'll my name is GQ from the Retar Crew, yo we're so happy to be here and want to perform for you but listen the marz cafe only has one mike, so we need your help, if anyone lives close or.... And so it went, and, snap of the fingers, just like that, a kid had a mike in his trunk, a girl had a boyfriend 2 blocks away that is a musician. A half hour later, and boom! We were back, problem solved and we had this.... And with that a show went off and later a great night slept, we needed some rest, the next day we were bowling at the White House. CP Da Realest
