northern state can i keep this pen

Playing Stubb’s May 14th in Austin, Northern State with American Princes and Lady Pterodactyl. I do have a soft spot for all female white-girl hip-hop groups, I do. Northern State hails from New York with members Hesta Prynn, Spero and Sprout. It’s nice to give your mind a complete break by listening to easy, self-promoting lyrics “I believe in Northern State and the golden rule, now Sprout’s gonna take y’all back to school”, with a few songs that loosely tie in politicized issues, “got the kids in the back and you’re sipping on a Coors, with your pro-life sticker like the choice is yours” (see: Sucka Mofo). For their recent album, Can I Keep This Pen?, they collaborated with producer Chuck Brody of Shitake Monkey, and Adrock from The Beastie Boys. Might this show be unsatisfying for one that thrives on getting their poetry fix through well written lyrics? Perhaps, but I’m going to check-ch-check-check-check, ch-check it out anyways.

A lime to a lemon, said a lemon to a lime. I spend my time riding MTA, so get off your high horse- Don Quixote.
