Fly Event: Free Talib Kweli Concert This Thursday!

25 Sep

Talib Kweli will be playing an intimate concert this Thursday at the MLB FanCave (a sportsbar type space that hosts Baseball fan events, concerts, MLB player and celebrity appearances). With his new album, Prisoner of Conscious dropping soon, I’m sure Talib will perform new tracks along with his classics.

My fave Talib song? “Talk To You (Lil’ Darlin’)” featuring Bilal off his Quality album. “You must live in the infinite blackness that exists when I close my eyes. I see you when I fall asleep, I see you when I dream.” -Swoons.

Note: Arrive early as space is limited.

Fly Event:Celebrate Brooklyn!: Childish Gambino Benefit Concert

Childish Gambino and the Royal Family

If you’re a fan of Frank Ocean and his homies Odd Future, than Childish Gambino should be added to your playlist. He’s a dope young dude who is loaded with talent as he best known for being a writer for 30 Rock, and for his role on the NBC comedy series Community. He writes, acts, produces, raps and does stand-up comedy, he is more than a triple threat.

If the rain holds off tomorrow, Childish Gambino is holding a benefit concert at Celebrate Brooklyn!

Fly Fashion: Beyonce Makes First Post-Pregnancy Appearance

7 Feb

Beyonce Post Baby

Temperley London

It’s totally unfair how B can rock a jersey dress one month after having Blue Ivy. Beyonce makes her first public appearance, in support of her husband Jay-Z, at his Carnegie Hall benefit show last night in New York. She chose an Alice Temperley dress, an Alexander McQueen clutch and red bottoms. I love how the dress transforms into a rouched skirt and shows off her figure in all the right places.

And the blue mani in honor of her daughter is adorable!

You too can own this dress for $395, available online at temperleylondon.com

Fly Event: Valentine’s Day Celebration with Bilal @ SOB’s

7 Feb

Bilal Valentine's Day

I had the opportunity to interview Bilal on Valentine’s Day in 2009 while in Washington, D.C., and as I read back on the interview, I remember how much fun he was and how he was just genuine and honest. His down- to- earth personality and genuineness is reflected in his music which is why I am such a huge fan of his. Next Tuesday, Bilal will perform at SOB’s for an intimate Valentine’s Day show.

SOB’s is also offering a couples dinner package, with a three- course meal of deliciousness! Try their grilled ginger lime snapper in a banana leaf with rum glazed sweet potatoes and coconut raisin slaw. The package also includes a bottle of wine, check out the menu in its entirety here.

Bilal + a three-course meal + a bottle of vino = Happy Valentine’s Day!

When: Tuesday February 14, 2012/ Doors 7:30pm Show 9:00pm
