Baba Brinkman launches his new Lit Fuse record label website and a Vancouver debut performance of his Chaucer/Gilgamesh/Beowulf adaptation

Tonight, April 25, 2011, you can attend the launch of Baba Brinkman’s (Vancouver-based rapper) new record label website, Lit Fuse Records, from the Home page,

Explosively intelligent music. Explosively contagious music.

Founded by Baba Brinkman in 2007, Lit Fuse Records is currently home to five solo acts or groups, and has released a dozen albums and counting. Our songs have appeared in feature films and on US Network television, and our artists tour the world and make music with a social impact.

The poster for the event at Baba’s blog, states that the launch will feature Baba Brinkman, Smoky Tiger, and Aaron Nazrul & the Boom Booms. It also states that the doors open at 8 pm ($5 at the door) with a music performance at 9 m at the Library Square Pub, 300 West Georgia (Vancouver, Canada). However, I also checked the Library Square Pub’s website and if you click on the event poster there, the times are listed as 10 pm to 2 am ($5 at the door).

Baba’s second Vancouver event is on Thursday, May 5, 2011, 9:30 pm ($10 at the door) at the Rio Theatre (1660 East Broadway). It’s a performance of Rapconteur, his Chaucer/Gilgamesh/Beowulf adaptation (scroll down the page to find the event poster).

Catch him before he leaves for the UK and the May 25, 2011 launch of his Rap Guide to Evolution DVD at the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square (London) and an Off-Broadway run starting June 17, 2011 at the Soho Playhouse for live performances of his Rap Guide to Evolution. Baba has other events on his schedule as well, including TED East and the Science Festival in New York. It could be a long time before he’s back in Vancouver.
