Beat Box

After putting heads on notice with 2010’s Therapy Sessions, Radio Ramone’s 2011 project, Blind Man’s Dream, landed on prominent hip-hop blogs, including 2DopeBoyz.com and DJBooth.net, and catapulted the Vegas native from being another local talent to an MC who could quite possibly find his way to a record label. With a new album, Abstract Radio, on the horizon, the MC whose name pays homage to the boombox-carrying character in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing will be taking his craft to the Vegas StrEATS Festival stage on May 12 (600 E. Fremont St., 6 p.m.-1 a.m., free, VegasStreats.com). If the DJ Finyl-produced lead single “Don’t Love Me” is any indication, Ramone will open his soul for your consumption.

Yo-Yo Ma

By Deanna Rilling

With fingers flying and facial features articulating along with each note, famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma packed the house for Viva Brazil, an evening celebrating the country’s music. He was accompanied by pianist Kathryn Stott, and they played compositions with a distinctively Latin flair of passion and romance, even though, as Ma joked at the obvious, “Kathy and I are not Brazilian.”
