We’re not the gambling type, but we’d be willing to wager that The Milkshake will bring all the boys and girls to Mad Donna’s yard. Hosted by local MC and all-around top-notch scene supporter Al-D, whose Vitamin D mixtape from last summer is in rotation around these parts, and featuring DJ sets from The Boom Bap’s DJ Rate and DJ Bowls, Gummy Soul’s Wally Clark and DJ Mattatat spinning party-rockin’ funk soul and hip-hop, the safe money is on The Milkshake. Hell, if we were the financier type we’d take all our money out of stocks, bonds and derivatives and put it on The Milkshake. And we’d definitely take all our money out of Europe — those folks are fucked! — and spend it on the tallest glasses of liquor that money can buy. Which is exactly why we’re not financiers.
