You a couple years late for Tupac Rave homie.
Sad that he was witness to yet another senseless murder.
This shit is gonna be epic. Boston hasn’t had an underground cult classic to claim since Blue Hill Ave…and that shit was shot in Canada.
Rapper/Producer/Director/Film maker Myster DL is wrapping up filming for “A Sea Of Green”, a movie starring the homey Alias from OVM.
Shit looks like it has more cameos than “Whose The Man.”
Here we go again…Hip Hop Trivia Night returns in epic fashion as we present a special Wu Tang edition.
Brush up on your Purple Tape knowledge. Research where all members of Sunz Of Man went to high school. Be prepared to identify Masta Killah’s scent in a scratch n’ sniff challenge.
This night should redefine rap nerd status to no end.
Oh, and our special guest judge will be Edo G.

There’s New Year’s events…then there’s JTTS.COM New Year’s events.
Thank Knife for serving up this shit show in the making… A $500 twerk contest, dubbed Twerkfest, hosted by the only putz who would agree to host a fucking twerk contest on New Years.
Should be lulz. Cop your discounted tix in advance – yadda yadda…
See you there.
Two in one week. I can’t say I attended this long running Wu-Tang night in Harvard Square nearly as much as I should have, but it was definitely a hidden gem. I can’t even find out how long it went on for. Well, if you live here you should go here tonight. This is what the organizers have to say:
“DECEMBER 18TH WILL BE THE LAST WU-TANG WEDNESDAY (FOREVER). TOMMY DOYLE’S IS CLOSING THEIR DOORS FOR GOOD. SO, WITH THAT BEING SAID, JOIN US ON DECEMBER 18TH AS WE CELEBRATE WU-WEDNESDAY ONE LAST TIME. IF YOU HAVEN’T COME YET, NOW IS THE TIME TO COME! SPREAD THE WORD AND WE WILL SEE ON THE 18TH OF DECEMBER”
If there’s two things I hate it’s change and goodbyes.
The Pill, one of the longest-running parties in Boston, just announced they are calling it quits. So what better place to express my feelings about a Mod and Brit Pop night than JTTS AMIRITE?
The Pill was the OG. The hipster night before the phrase was coined. I never made it to its humble beginnings at The Penalty Box, but I followed the party sporadically over the years through it’s rants in Chinatown and to it’s final destination at Great Scott in Allston. I can’t even go to this last one which is next Friday, but I always liked the security of knowing The Pill would always be there….or so I thought.
Holding down a monthly or weekly party in this city is a labor of love. This isn’t NYC where 1/2 your crowd is there by default. You have to bust your ass harder in Boston to deliver a product that people will come back to continuously. And that’s what the Pill did week after week for sixteen fucking years.
The Pill leaving may be a small thing in some peoples’ minds, but it is a tell-tale sign that things are changing. What’s next, Makka Mondays? Elements? The Other Side Cafe? The older generation is moving on and I fear for the future of creative nightlife in this city.
So shout out to Michael Marotta and everything he’s done for Boston.
I see you cracka.
By the time you read this, the voting for the BMAs will have just closed.
Somehow JTTS has been nominated the last 4 years for Best Boston Music Blog, despite a barrage of inconsistency, Blog-AIDS, no foreseeable revenue $ from advertisers, waning writing interests…. and the usual drug, alcohol and sex-related problems that continue to destroy the hearts of our bloggers and halt the progress and cohesion of what JTTS could be.
BUT…this Sunday we’re going to cast all that aside when several of us partake in this once a year grand soiree; One that has continued to show us love while “pitting us” against some of the most respectable blogs in the city.
I’m DJing. Bought a hotel for the evening. Plan to wile the fuck out and honor the true spirit of what JTTS should be.
JKLVNIN, ON&ON, DOZ, TOMMEE / TAMMY, ASH, and other various Boston “tastemakers” will be in tow……getting twisted.
JOIN US…….or die.
Gonna take a break from all this Goblin Metal and get back to some hip hop shit this Saturday night. Our guest is DJ Felli Fel, who’s worked with everyone from Lil Jon to Kanye West.He’ll be rocking the decks along side our buddy DJ Doze, myself and DJ Tommee. CLICK ON THE FLIER BELOW TO RSVP!
We embarked on Boston’s first bone-chilling fall evening last night, me looking like an Aids-ridden Rick Rubin and On&On resembling a poor man’s LL Cool J.
