Lecco's Lemma - Tribute - Good Life
Boston - Not always known for its music scene, there is actually an incredibly diverse pool of talent here. Whether its the Tuesday reggae nights at The Phoenix Landing, Solid at Zuzu upstairs, throwback nights at The Model in Allston, or Julep hosting guests from the exotic reaches of Pittsburgh, it is never a challenge to find something to amuse, inspire, or just move your feet here in the Hub.
Still, while electronic music abounds, at Wobble Wednesdays at Wonder Bar in Allston and across the Charles in Central Square nightclubs, Hip Hop seems to be left behind, struggling to keep up. The first good live hip hop show I saw here was last winter at the Copperfields as a part of the Together festival. Since then, literally every hip hop event I've seen has been hosted at the Good Life.
The Good Life has been something which Boston literally cannot live without - a lifeline to quality hip hop music, bringing 9th Wonder, and DJ Premier back to back weekends. Hosting DJ Bonics at an afterparty for Wiz Khalifa, and most importantly - as the home of Fresh Produce, with DJ Knife and Tommee.
I got a chance to check out a tribute to Lecco's Lemma - a radio show from 1985-1988 hosted by DJ Pace - the dude who wrote the book on Boston hip hop - Word!
I snapped some pics - Also props to Mo D upstairs bringing the funk!

Did I take your picture? At a music festival? In a club? In NYC? Maybe in Pittsburgh or Chicago?
