Arguably the two most powerful men in the rap game today, Kanye West and Jay-Z have teamed up for a fall tour and forthcoming album to be released next Tuesday on iTunes under the new moniker Watch The Throne. As of right now, the fall tour dates are being re-tooled to help work in some new bookings. The tour already had a gap in it between the Houston (10/26) and Atlanta (10/29) shows, leaving room for a possible Friday night Voodoo spot. Right now, nothing is confirmed, so we’ll have to wait for this afternoon’s announcement to see if this MAJOR show will materialize. Regardless of your thoughts on this collaboration, this will be one of the bigger festival sets of the year (if not the biggest) if it in fact happens.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges is now an attorney living amongst THE CALIFORNIANS in West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Pink Floyd, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, Futurebirds, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Monster Rally, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
