Episode #131 – Hopscotch Outreach Foundation, Die Off, Baby Gurl, The BBoy Federation
Soundwaves is back for 2014 with Episode 131. Strap in for another year of podcastin’ with host Dan Nailen and your crew from SLUG Magazine.
– The Hopscotch Outreach Arts Foundation have invested their time and effort in the youth of Salt Lake City by offering classes in dance, film, writing and many other forms of alternative art. Founders Monica da Silva and Frazier Tedford explain the importance of educating our youth in these forms of expression while providing a friendly, nurturing atmosphere where kids can engage their creative side and turn their passion into life long skills.
– Die Off is a brand new 3 piece that formed over the summer of 2013. Keep your eyes out for these new comers who released a demo back in October, their brand of hardcore is heavy and bouncy with a kiss of southern rock and is nothing short of what you need to act a fool in the pit, brah.
– Baby Gurl sounds like they were methodically pieced together in a laboratory, before being raised up high into a tumultuous, stormy sky and brought to life by electricity that etched its way through darkness before finding a way into what was once dead flesh. This experimental rock duo is a monster that will have you grooving to weird, dancy buildups and tearing shit down to loud, funky breakdowns.
– Whether you’re crumpin’, popping and locking or two-stepping, The Bboy Federation views all forms of hip-hop and street style dancing as a way not only to express yourself but also as a means to travel the country and make ends meet. Co-founders Josh Perkins and Josie Marie speak on the organizations progress since its inception in 2008 and the BBoy Fed’s upcoming professional stage show which premieres this month.
