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 ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 ๐Ÿ‘Œ. All ages. $5. Come through and vibe with us ๐Ÿ˜16711757_10211589118424733_5654530526079116626_n

Once again, thanks for keeping up with us โœŠ. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚. Peace

2017

Our last show of 2016 was great! Everyone had a really great time networking with some of the artists from LA and vice versa. We’d like to give a huge thanks to The Waterhole for allowing us to do the event there. However, due to the winter being cold as fuck, we did see a minimized turn out to our events last month. Less people want to do things when it’s freezing outside ๐Ÿ˜‚. So we probably won’t be having another solely Blue Lotus set up event until it gets warmer. Either late March or April, depending on how the Groundhog feels ๐Ÿ˜‚. Keep an eye out for that.

But on to our moves for this month. We just got a 360 degree camera, so we plan on using that to live stream some of the things we’re doing this month. Mainly the cypher and the Phoenix show (more on those later). Profane actually scheduled a small rehearsal show tonight for the Phoenix show, so we’ll be live streaming that for sure. Keep an eye out on our social medias for the link.

We also have a cypher scheduled to be recorded on the 13th. It’s a secret line up, but you can bet it’s 8 of the best lyricists this city has to offer. We should be uploading it to our Youtube channel by the following day. Make sure to keep checking up for it. You won’t be disappointed ๐Ÿ˜‰.

We’re also releasing the first single for our next project January 13th! I (Hanuman) spent a little over 9 months working on this project. It was all written and recorded right after I got done writing Nirvana. A lot of my previous mixtapes have been real experimental. Just kind of seeing what I like or dislike. This is definitely another one of those. I finished about 25 songs for it, but I cut the final project down to 5. I think they’re really solid songs, so I can’t wait for you guys to hear them. Our current plan is to release a single every couple months tile September. And drop it then. But that plan may change overtime. So just keep up with us to stay updated.the-lotus-tape

The next show we’ll be doing will be The Tribe’s EP release on Saturday, January 14th! Their EP is amazing, so you definitely won’t want to miss them performing it live. Haresha just released a new project as well, so she’ll be performing some of that new stuff too. Theirs an amazing lineup of musicians and artists, so if you’re a creative of any kind you’ll definitely want to come out and vibe ๐Ÿ˜

And finally, we’ll be closing out the month with our first show in Arizona ๐Ÿ‘! It’ll be held at the Jukebox Dance Studio in Mesa. They’re a really great dance team that’s been making waves out there, so we’re glad they allowed us to do our first show there. We have 6 Vegas and 6 Phoenix artists on the bill, and they’re all gonna rip the stage apart โ˜๏ธ. It’s free entry and all ages, so if you know anyone in the Phoenix area be sure to spread the word ๐Ÿ˜

We have a few other larger things in the planning stages. So be sure to follow us on our social medias to stay updated on all of it. We’re hoping to start investing in merchandise in the next couple months too. When that happens we’ll add a store tab to the website. We have some cool ideas for designs, so we can’t wait to make that happen ๐Ÿ‘Œ. Stay blessed everyone ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™! Peace

New Years!

We’ve had an amazing year so far, and we’re definitely gonna close it with a bang ๐Ÿ˜. We have 2 shows lined up for this month, and a cypher and another out of state show lined up for next month.

First off, the Overflow 6 show last month was absolutely amazing! It was unbelievable seeing so many people from all different factions of Vegas uniting together under one roof like that. That was definitely the best show we’ve been a part of setting up so far. We want to give a huge thanks to the HBTC crew and Zelly Vibes and Uraina Serna for helping make that event so successful ๐Ÿ™. You can view the recap below:

 

Our next show is actually another collab show with the HBTC crew. Their very own Brandon Millares will be having an album release show at The Waterhole. He has a stacked line up of amazing artists performing alongside him, so you definitely won’t want to miss it. The Waterhole also has awesome Hookah and Drink specials, so it’s definitely gonna be one you’ll want to attend ๐Ÿ”ฅ!

Our last show of the year will be another, very overdue Vegas Heat! This one will also be held at The Waterhole. The line up has some dope Hip Hop and acoustic acts, as well as a few LA artists. Not to mention a much anticipated rap battle! So this is definitely gonna be a show you’ll want to end your year with ๐Ÿ‘

We also have a local cypher scheduled with a few artists on January 13th. That’ll proly end up being more of a closed thing with a surprise line up ๐Ÿ˜. But keep an eye out for the video ๐Ÿ‘Œ. It’s definitely gonna be an amazing showcase of the talent in the city

And finally, the last event we have lined up so far is our next out of state show in Phoenix! This one will be held at a very well known Dance Studio in the Phoenix are, The Jukebox. We have 12 solid artists on the line up: 6 from Vegas and 6 from Phoenix. So this is definitely gonna be a night of solid networking and amazing performances.

But on to the rest of the events for this month. This Saturday we’re collabing with the group HBTC on their Overflow event at the Waterhole in Chinatown. It’s an amazing lineup of Hip Hop and R&B artists. The one and only Zelly Vibes will be headlining the night, with her manager Uraina Serna hosting the event. And the amazing DJ Crisko on the boards. The event is free entry. 21+. 10pm-2am. There will be hookah and drink specials the whole night. There will also be an open mic from 9pm-10pm, so if you want to come out and show us what you’ve got to be considered for the next one stop by! There’s some artists I personally can’t wait to see hit the stage at this show ๐Ÿ˜, so you definitely won’t want to miss it!

And finally we’ll be closing out this months events with our 3rd annual Black Friday Bash! This is gonna be another lineup of amazing Hip Hop and R&B artists with a couple dope rock bands as well. This years bash will be held at a friends backyard on the State Streets, near Charleston and Nellis. Free and all ages. We’ll also be selling hot dogs and drinks for 50ยข each in case everyone gets hungry. The event will be hosted by our good friend and MC Miindset.

With 2016 coming to a close, we have a few big things planned for next year. So make sure to keep checking up for new developments. 2016 was a year of major growth. We plan to keep that going exponentially in 2017.

LA Heat!

Vegas Heat 10 was the most successful event we’ve had yet! We’re glad everyone had so much fun. We all almost broke the floor during a few of the sets ๐Ÿ˜‚. The recap video is below, courtesy of On3TrackMind:

But on to our next move. We’ve been on the hunt for a venue in LA to host a show for about 6 months now. But after countless leads and a whole lot of persistence, we’re proud to announce Blue Lotus’s first out of state show ๐Ÿ˜Š! It’ll be at a very well known Hip Hop shop in the LA area called B Side. They’ve had an impressive list of West Coast artists bless the stage within their walls, so we can’t wait to be the next ๐Ÿ‘. It’ll be on November 11, 7pm-12am. 130 Shoppers Lane, Covina, CA. We have 6 Vegas artists and 6 LA artists on the line up. Everyone is A1, so this is sure to be a show to remember. Free and all ages. So if you happen to be in the LA area or even decide to just take a day trip you definitely won’t be disappointed. Blue Lotus and the rest of the Vegas crew will be hitting up a few of the hot local spots on the day of passing out flyers and selling shirts and stuff. So if you wanna come meet up with us and hang out you’re more than welcome. We have some other major developments in the works, so as always make sure to keep an eye out for more info as it becomes available. It’s only up from here on out ๐Ÿ™

The 2pac show was amazing! It was unbelievable seeing so many different artists under one roof repping for one cause. A huge thank you to everyone that came out and donated! Your collective contributions helped us provide for the homeless. Another similar show may happen again. Stay posted for more info.

In other news, Vegas Heat 10 is September 30th. We have a bunch of new artists and local vets on this one, so it’s sure to be a show to remember. Come out and have some fun with us :)! Stay on the lookout for more updates. Thanks for the support! Peace

Tupac show!

Swami Netero’s debut album “Wordsmith” is finally out. He’s been selling physical copies like crazy. Make sure to hit us up to cop yours. Vegas Heat Expo was amazing! We were glad to see so many new faces. Our next Vegas Heat show, Vegas Heat 10, is planned for September 30. A flyer and event will be up soon.

But the next show on our agenda is a Tupac commemoration show! He died here in our city 20 years ago in September, so we thought it’s only right to host a show in his honor. We’re gonna have DJ AR on the board playing dope 90’s tunes for the first half. Then a couple dance routines from I.S.I. Group. And finally a chain reaction cypher hosted by Ndigineous! This one’s gonna be dope, so you won’t want to miss it :). There will also be a raffle for certain items from vendors. Buy in will be either $5, clothes, or food/hygiene items. All proceeds going to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission. Come out and have a great time guys! Keep an eye out for more updates. Peace
