Friday night's A Side Worldwide Holiday Party at the Blind Pig promises to be a celebration
It's been a good year for A Side, the homegrown, now bicoastal, artist, business management and marketing company that counts among its talent the progressive hip-hop acts Buff 1, Now On, 14KT, Athletic Mic League, DJ Graffiti and DJ Haircut - all of which will be performing at the event.
"It's been a really successful 2008, it's definitely a celebration party for all the releases we had success with this year," said Now On's Jackson Perry by phone from Los Angeles, A Side's West Coast base.
Most of A Side's artists had new releases last year, including the electro-soul-sounding Now On, which has its roots in the much-missed local bank Funktelligence. That band broke up in 2005 when its core members relocated to L.A.
One of the show's highlights will probably be Athletic Mic League's set, said Perry. "AMG is reuniting on the stage, which is rare. All the new material will be played, old material, it's going to be a whole bunch of variety."
