Heather’s Birthday Party @ Eagle Tavern – 4/13/2012

This past Friday the 13th, we made the hike up to Quakertown, PA for Heather Slagel’s birthday party, where her brother Joe booked performances from Reef the Lost Cauze, Adlib, Nightwalker, Burke the Jurke and Vas Illi.  The performances closed out with an overwhelming cypher featuring Nico the Beast, Slim DSM, Petey Green, Capo, Rich Quick and a handful of others.  The wheels were handled masterfully by DJ Thoroughbred, who played more hardcore hip-hop than I’ve heard in my last 10 trips to a show combined; dude definitely knew his crowd.

Most importantly, it was nice to see so many city-dwellers make the long ride out to ‘the sticks’ for Heather and Joe.  For as long as I’ve been involved with the local event circuit, the Slagel siblings are as much of celebrities as any MC, persistently traveling 1hr+ to endorse nearly every underground show worth seeing.  If only once every year or so, we all can return the favor- a point acknowledged by everyone that picked up the mic that night.
