Colombo, Sri Lanka ~ A great time was had by all the recent Carlton Super 7's concert at Colombo Fairgrounds in Sri Lanka featuring Taio Cruz, Sean Kingston and North Dakota MC Big Reeno. In fact it was the largest show in that nation's history with a sold out crowd of 12,000.

Reeno kicked off the night with a rousing one hour performance that included favorites like "Iron Man 3", "Get It Poppin" and "Get Your Rock On."

Next up was Sean Kingston who wooed the crowd with hits like "Beautiful Girl", "Fire Burning" and his new hit single, "Beat It."

The night was closed out by international pop sensation Taio Cruz who energetically fed the frenzied audience with his long litany of hits.

All three performers were given a royal fanfare that included plenty of news coverage, a meet and greet with Sri Lanka's Presidential family and an open invitation to return.

The painful process of grief and the grace of organ donation punctuate the latest music video "Organs" by duo The Uncluded (Aesop Rock & Kimya Dawson). Produced at Bent Image Lab and directed by Rob Shaw, the video weaves together a dark tale of loss and love as performed by whimsical stop motion insects.

Set as a children's stage play, a grasshopper and a cicada (anthropomorphic versions of Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson respectively) sway, strum, and sing about "the importance of giving away your pieces" as the tale of a grieving mother beetle and other ill-fated bugs unfolds around them. Check out the video below and feel free to share it with your readers.

Legendary independent artist collective Hieroglyphics Imperium are teaming up with Oakland-based Linden Street Brewery to present the Second Annual Hiero Day block party on Monday, September 2, 2013 (Labor Day) from 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the Linden Street Brewery, located at the Port of Oakland. Hiero Day is a free all day music festival that features live performances by the legendary Hieroglyphics and other special guests, local merchandise vendors, food trucks, and interactive activities for all ages. Hiero Day celebrates and showcases the Bay Area's diverse, innovative, multicultural, and multigenerational music movement in the heart of Oakland.

Hiero Day was created in 2012 with the purpose of celebrating Oakland, supporting local businesses, empowering communities, and highlighting the Bay Area's internationally recognized independent Hip-Hop culture. Showcasing independent and emerging artists who live and work in the Bay Area, the festival will remain free and accessible to all, thanks to the generous support of sponsors. After the success of last year's inaugural event, Oakland's Mayor Jean Quan will declare September 3, 2013 as "Hiero Day" in the City of Oakland. This year's festival holds particular significance to the local music community, as it lands on the 20th anniversary of the release of the highly influential and groundbreaking album, '93 'Til Infinity by Bay Area underground legends, Souls of Mischief. At Hiero Day 2013, the Hieroglyphics will perform hits from previous albums, including the infamous '93 'Til Infinity, Full Circle, and songs from their new album The Kitchen, released Tuesday, July 16, 2013.

Watch footage of Hiero Day 2012 and hear Kanye, Sway Calloway, Davey D, and Radio Rahim wax poetic about Hiero's legacy on music, culture, and fashion.

Founded in 1997 in Oakland, California, Hiero Imperium Records was founded by artists Del The Funky Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, Domino, and the group Souls of Mischief, consisting of members A-Plus, Opio, Phesto and Tajai. After releasing albums on several major labels, the collective established their own independent Hieroglyphics Imperium label, website, and merch company in 1997, and are credited as creating the blueprint for independent rap labels. Few other rap collectives have withstood the test of time and are still considered as vibrant, respected, and talented as when they first stepped on the scene 20+ years ago. They are also credited as being one of the first hip hop groups to work with skate, snow, and surf companies . Created by Del the Funky Homosapien, their "third eye logo" is considered the third most recognized music logo according to Rolling Stone Magazine, and has been seen tattooed on dozens of fans all over the world. 2013 marks the 20 year anniversary of Souls of Mischief's seminal '93 'Til Infinity album, which will be celebrated at the 2nd annual Hiero Day block party festival on September 2nd, 2013 in Oakland, California.
