The Vagabond’s 3 Year Anniversary Kickoff With Mary Anne Hobbs

It’s been a nice couple weeks of Birthdays with BassHead Music‘s 10th at Get Low, Sweat Records’ 6th at Sweatstock 2011, and now The Vagabond‘s 3rd! Of course it’s also the 3rd Anniversary of Fridays at The Vagabond in Cahoots with Sweat Records! We’re doing it really big this Friday with all our Resident DJs plus one the most important tours hitting the country this year! UK radio legend MARY ANNE HOBBS has curated The Road Warrior Tour featuring two artists who put out some of my favorite albums last year, so I’m more than excited!

If you don’t know about San Diego’s GONJASUFI (Warp) and his supernatural debut album produced by The Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus, you need to hear it… and not miss his live Miami debut!

Another list topper for me was LORN‘s dark and time-shifting Nothing Else.

I was lucky enough to see the Brainfeeder artist play at Fin Du Monde, and his set is heavy! The tour also brings West Coast beatmaker TAKE and visual mastermind STRANGELOOP out here for the first time. Read this excellent interview Arielle Castillo did with Miss Hobbs for the Miami New Times to get some hints to what she’ll be showing us this Friday.

Expect an electronic showcase of higher quality than most you’d find during WMC or Ultra week. Nothing but the best in future music to kick off The Vagabond 3 Year Anniversary Weekend! There’s still some tickets left, so go on and get yours!
