BEST HIP-HOP NIGHT Phoenix 2007 - The Shop, Saturday nights at Hidden House - CLOSED
and nope, a heavy pouring hand and paying 3 dollars less a night does not equate a "best" or even "better" title. I'm not sure if the Blunt Club is big headed or not. I do know what I would pay for cover on a Thursday night for a particular talent and they are always right on the mark. Paying 5 dollars to hear the same 25 tracks each Saturday night... Can't do it! Perhaps once every other month... :) As far as the live bands on Fridays- it's hit or miss. But I respect everything they're trying to do. Its just my little opinion, that's all.
The Blunt Club charges to high a cover, and their bartenders don't have a heavy hand. Danielle I can see your point, but consider this, Al supports local talent better then the Blunt, and who can forget when Damijiwa showed up and got on the Mic? I think The Blunt got a little big headed.
Yo cuz You rocking the scene again! I am coming to see you this winter and kick it. Keep doin the damn thang.
Congratulations little brother!!! We are very, very proud of you. The Inland Empire out here in beautiful Cali could use you!!
We love you.
I have to say- I enjoy going to the Shop every time I go. The music is great, the drinks are cheap and the crowd is always live.
But to say the Shop is the Best Hip Hop night in Phx - overlooking the Blunt Club at Hollywood Alley on Thursday nights is laughable at best.
The song selection at the shop has not changed the three years I\'ve been going there. Yes, many of them are my favorite hip hop songs... Ms. Fat Booty, Lady don\'t tek no, every single Tribe song, De La Soul, KRS-1, N.W.A, etc... I go when I want to hear them. But I can not go back week after week. It would be worse than listening to the repeated top 40 hits on the radio. I would get sick of the classics that I love.
Blunt brings out the freshest talent, the best live artists and dancers... Their shows are legendary and each focuses on a new sound, a new aspect of the hip hop culture. This year was no exception. The Shop is in the top 3. They do a great job with what they have. But, Blunt Club is #1.
