Yeah, we seriously slagged Questlove's last local DJ gig. In fact, you may remember us saying shit like, "Besides the purp stench lingering in the air, nothing about Questlove's mix ... got us high" and "We're done covering DJ sets."
Well, um, we meant it at the time. But with WMC only two weeks away, it's time to make peace. So let us just say: Crossfade still loves Questo and his famous 'fro.
Anyway, we're planning to be there with our reporter pads and other geek gear when Mr. Thompson, MC sidekick Yameen Allworld, and NYC promotion-slash-marketing crew Giant Step throw down at the Florida Room March 12.
You should go too. For one, it's free. (Just RSVP to giantstep.net/questlove.) And for another, it's Questlove. He's a musical genius and he's got awesome hair. Even we can't stay mad at him.
Questlove with Yameen Allworld, presented by Giant Step. Saturday, March 12. Florida Room at the Delano, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Doors open at 10 p.m. and admission is free with RSVP to giantstep.net/questlove. Ages 21 and up. Call 305-674-6152 or visit delano-hotel.com.
