Adam's World Weekly - Save the Acoustic Cafe!
Welcome to the new week, and the new month, everyone. Pardon me if I'm a little slow moving today, I tested for my fourth degree black belt yesterday and I might need a few days to recover. It's all good, though, because I kicked some ass! Speaking of things that kick ass, I have some kick ass features for you this week, starting with a VERY important story on a benefit show for my home away from home, the Acoustic Cafe. I also have a commentary on Connecticut's hip-hop scene that many are saying applies to ALL hip-hop scenes, a brand new Pop Shots, and a Vid Pick from Duece Bug.
If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. Thanks, and enjoy!

I've had public breakups and breakdowns there, met girlfriends there, and shared smiles and cries with many friends and family there.”
Talking to Walls' frontman Brian Kelly seconds this, saying “they have been a partner as we grow our career, so it is a special place for us. We play around the country, and Acoustic Cafe is Talking to Walls' home. Personally speaking, it's been my public living room since (it opened in) 1999.”
This place so many artists, spanning nearly every genre of music, call home has recently found itself up against a wall...

Dear CT Hip-Hop, We Need to Talk
CT hip-hop, we've been good friends for a long time now. I've covered you for this site, had a column all about you for three years with the Fairfield Weekly, and have tried my best to get you featured in mainstream places as often as humanly possible. We've had some great times together, but we need to talk.
