2nd Quarter

This spring is setting up to be very active for the label ✊. It’s starting to get hard to keep up with all the moves we’re making 😂

First off, the Vegas Heat show this past weekend was insane! Over 200 people came through throughout the night. It was definitely the most amazing show we’ve ever set up, and we’d like to thank the venue and all the artists involved for making it possible 🙏. You can watch a recap of the whole thing below:

With that being said, the next show we have lined up will be with our good friends 5001 😎. It’s a dope line up of rappers and metal bands that you definitely won’t want to miss 👌. It’ll be a fun night

We’re also in the beginning stages of planning a show in the Bay Area in July. We’re still on the lookout for ideal venues and local artists, so if you know any please shoot them our way 👌. We’re also planning out a Blue Lotus rap contest for the summer. We’ll be coordinating with local producers for the beats and bloggers from various cities to help spread the word. Keep an eye out for more details on that, because that’ll definitely be fun 😉. Thanks for reading 🙂. Make sure to check back soon for more updates! Peace ✌️

Springtime!

We’ve been very hard at work lately. We have a lot of new developments this month. First, we finally made a Blue Lotus radio station! It’s a compilation of Las Vegas and affiliate Hip Hop and R&B. It runs 24/7, so you can tune in whenever you like 👌. The website is http://bluelotusent.playtheradio.com/. We’ve been trying to make shirts to sell, but we messed up the screen burning process twice already 😕. We have all the equipment though, so once we get this screen thing right the shirts will be online for $10! The next show we have booked is Overflow 9 with the HBTC crew. These shows are always great, and this line up is solid, so you definitely won’t want to miss it ✊

After that Blue Lotus is back with another Vegas Heat! We’ve been having issues finding an ideal venue for the past few months, but we finally locked one. This one will be held at Culture Collective off Wyoming and Industrial. It’s a huge venue, so we’re aiming to pack it out 😏. We have an A1 team of the best artists in the city on this one. Plus the one and only DJ AR on the boards, Dray vending his art, and $etta hosting the night. There’ll also be a secret set from a surprise artist before the scheduled performances, so show up early to not miss it! We should also be selling our shirts at this event too, so make sure to bring $10. We’ll even have our photographer taking pics of anyone wearing the merch 😁. This is definitely gonna be the event to set the tone for the summer, so make sure to come through and be apart of an amazing moment for the scene 🔥

And finally Blue Lotus head back to Oregon on April 28th for our next out of state show ✊! We have a great list of Oregon and Vegas acts performing on this one, so if you’re in the area during the show you’ll definitely want to swing by and witness some greatness 😎. Free and all ages. Mark your calendar and spread the word!

We’ve added a Radio page to the website. We’re trying to figure out how to embed our radio player into the page itself, but it hasn’t been working. For now just click the link on the page. I’ve been talking to my computer friends about coding to fix the problem. Hopefully it’s worked out soon. We also made the store page for our website. We should have the shirts done by April 1st, so once those are done we’ll post around about it and connect a store widget to the page. Make sure to keep checking back for more developments 🙂. And, as always, thanks for reading. Stay up! Peace

Still Movin’

We did a lot of cool things last month. The Phoenix show was a huge success! Everyone had a lot of fun networking between both the cities. The next out of state show we have booked is Medford, Oregon on April 21st. Keep an eye out for the flyer and more details. We’ve been on the look out for a good place to start hosting local shows again. It’s hard to find an all ages or at least 18+ venue that’s centrally located and also is a doable price 😂. We’re looking to set have the next local Blue Lotus set up show in either late March or early April though. So keep an eye out for that as well. And finally the next show we’re involved in is this Friday at The Arts Factory! A good friend of mine put me and a few of my friends on it. It’s definitely gonna be a show worth attending. Definitely amazing performers 👌. All ages. $5. Come through and vibe with us 😁16711757_10211589118424733_5654530526079116626_n

Once again, thanks for keeping up with us ✊. We’re looking to get some merch before we head out to Oregon, so keep an eye out for a store section. It’ll be our first time diving into that, so we’re just taking some time to make sure we get it right. Check back soon for more updates 🙂. Peace
