Billy Black - Memoirs Of A Mad Man (Documentary)

Billy Black is a Trip-Hop artist from Houston, Texas(born and rasied in 5th ward) and is taking over the downtown, underground scene in the city with elaborate costumes and a unique stage performance that can rival a young David Bowie in the early 70's. Billy Black was kind enough to let us follow him around for a couple weeks and shoot footage of him perfroming and his life overall. What was originally going to be a short five minute documentary, becamed something much more then what we have intially planed, with the film(Memoirs Of A Mad Man) evolving into a 25 minutes documentary. Billy Black is way too interesting of a character just to make a short five minute 'day in the life' film about him.

Now we are back for the 3rd time this year to feed the Star Wars addiction that will surely quench everyone's thirst!

Denitia & sene - 'Divided' (Official Music Video)

 "Smooth like smoke from the tip of a Cuban cigar, and as sensuous as morning love, electro-soul duo denitia & sene not only exude sexy through their music, they invent it. The Brooklyn-based musicians came together a year ago with a shared vision to bring truth and ingenuity to stylistic music, and they’ve held their ambitions high ever since. Simple. Rare. Sumptuous. Bold. They’ve been influenced by a range of sonic proclivities. Thus, their work is distinguished not by genre, but attention to free verse, and the magic that transpires between darkness and light. It’s film noir for audiophiles – chic, hip and alluring – and together, they have broken down personal limits to forge a bond surpassing all expectations."

Spooky Black - Without You

You would not expect the voice coming out of this Minneapolis native's mouth. From first glance you would think Spooky Black is just another gimmick/comic "urban artist" like Riff Raff and Lil B etc. But boy you'll be wrong this guy actually has talent, and would give artist like Drake and the Weeknd a run for their money.

Billy Black's Freak Show 4/3/1014

Billy Black is one far out dude(literally). Probably one of the weirdest guys I've ever met, in a good way. Everything about him oozes different. If there was a way to combine Andre 3k, Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson you would get Billy Black. 

       

Last thursday Billy invited me to one of his Freak Show parties that he throws every month in downtown Houston. Needless to say it was pretty trippy with a diverse crowd of musicians and people in masks, costumes and facepaint, It felt like Halloween in the middle of Spring. Billy Black is one of the few people that can bring out the Hipsters, Hip-hop heads, goth kids and rockers all in one room to come together for one crazy weird experience of local music, performance art and free beer! I'm looking foward for more shows and music from Billy Black in the near future. If you haven't been to one of Billy Black's parties, you're missing out, point blank!
