A Rap-Rock Night, Minus The Fred Durst.

Friends-of-PDP Furlong (featuring Bill Bell of the late, great Storm Davis & His Spectacular 777 live band experiment) invited us to perform alongside them and fellow rockers Hush, Darling at The Blackstone in Pawtucket.

So we said: Sure.

And when we ask you to come nod along, you should say the same.

Whiteboy rappers + pop/rock/alternative bands. It'll be just like sitting in your car listening to WBRU. Except with booze. So it'll be just like sitting in our car listening to WBRU.

Sterbyrock: In A Category By Himself.

The ever-supportive eagle-eyed entertainment scribes over at the Providence Phoenix have unveiled their selections for the 'Best Of Providence' for 2009, including where to eat, what to watch, and who to listen to. And PDP DJ Sterbyrock was right at the top of that list, in a category all his own:

Editors' Pick
Best Platter-Melting Radio Host
DJ Sterbyrock

Five years strong, DJ STERBYROCK's weekly "SterbyrockRadio Afterschool Special" on 90.3 WRIU-FM remains the highest-rated rap show on Rhody radio, and with good reason. The live deejay for acclaimed hip-hop collective Poorly Drawn People, Sterby digs through the crates every week, from Golden Era-emcees to new indie icons, with plenty of local talent culled from his deep connections within the PDP family tree. For those of us who long ago pledged allegiance to Kurty Kut, Sterby is doing us proud by spinning real-deal hip-hop on wax; the dude is nice on the tables and keeps the three-hour show (3 to 6 pm) flowing. Sterby's turntablist friends always jump on for live scratching sets, and when he's ready to pass the torch, he'll have plenty of peeps waiting for their shot to bring the realness live on-air every week. Catch Sterby in action when he occasionally works the room at Local 121. | |

Excursions 2: Dox / Educated Consumers / Labeless.

The second installment of PDP producer/deejay Dox's Excursions at Tazza, wherein he spins the classics from the old school and underground alike. A special bonus this month: live performances from friends-of-PDP Educated Consumers, who trek all the way from Maryland to rock for you Providence types; and Labeless Illtelligence (Cas Uno & Esh The Monolith), just so you know you're in familiar territory.

Stop by and vibe out with us, and pick up your copy of Motion Not Emotion if you've somehow missed it.

Thank You. Really.

Huge thanks to all who came through the Motion Not Emotion CD Release Show this past Saturday in Providence. Your support at shows like these is what makes it possible for us to keep doing this, and it is appreciated beyond words.

Friends and appreciators from Washington, NJ, NY, CT, and Boston all made the trek to be part of an evening that was very important to us, as well as some members of the ever-faithful Providence contingent. Love to every single person that made it out and made what it was.

And to those who missed it...
