Being stuck in Nashville, proud home of country music, the Confederacy and the Klan, I don’t go out often. To be more accurate I really don’t go out ever.

For me to emerge from my Batcave of Solitude, there had better be a good reason. A very good reason.

Comic book artist, rock musician, Jane-of-all-trades, Renaissance Woman, fellow Atlanta native, and the epitome of Black Girl Magic, Afua Richardson, announced on social media that her band, Waking Astronomer would be in town performing at the Exit In.

Introducing Tony B

They grow up so fast.

My awesome little cousin (well, he’s not little anymore but he’s awesome as ever), Tony B has entered the music game.

And cuz has come out swinging with “Fall,” the title track off his upcoming EP.

Anyone who’s known me for five seconds knows that I’m all about promoting and supporting quality PoC media. And when said quality media is coming from kinfolk: bonus!

So you know I’m more than proud to boost the signal with this post.

Tony is not only immensely talented but he clearly knows his craft.

But don’t take my word for it. Check out the track.

And don’t hesitate to show my cousin some love. You can find him at these haunts:
