Purple Krown Clothing has been instrumental in bringing hip-hop shows to Las Vegas. In the last few months, they’ve brought Dom Kennedy, Dilated Peoples’ Evidence, California indie rhyme-slinger Fashawn and Young Jeezy’s newest signee, Freddie Gibbs. Purple Krown is targeting the Hard Rock Café on the Strip on Jan. 14 for its next event, which will celebrate its one-year anniversary and feature Diggy Simmons (the son of Reverend Run of Run DMC) and Y.C. of “Toot It and Boot It” fame. “Our end goal is cultivate a relationship with our community by throwing events and concerts that represent what we stand for: ‘Don’t Start Trends, Make Movements,’” Purple Krown’s CEO Peter “P.K.” Kim says. “We are loyal fans of the artists we bring onstage, and feel like we are catering to an audience that has been longing for stuff like this locally for long time.”

Nerd rock, holiday albums, Spanish guitars

By Jarret Keene

The holidays are a musically problematic time for me, as the air is laced with Christmas jingles and the dismal sound of once-respectable rock bands and artists stooping to make a quick buck by recording songs designed to make us feel good about racking up insane credit-card debt in the name of “generosity.” Let’s call mass, mindless consumption what it is: an addiction. If you want to save the economy by ruining your personal finances, fine. Just wake me up when it’s safe to enter a Walgreen’s without hearing Bob Seger’s rendition of “Little Drummer Boy.”
