This was the inaugural year of the Hallowballoo Festival in the Arts District. Three blocks of live music, open bars and freaky costumes.


Papa Mali was smokin as the free show headliner. I remember checking out his sound several years back and thinking, meh. He’s definitely grown as a player. Second tune in was an inspired Bertha that had the oldtimers bouncing around the avenue.


Then it was off for a date with DJ Logic and the legend Maceo Parker. No one was around for the first half of DJ Logic. It was me on the floor and Logic on the boards.


As the crowd filled out and Maceo came out, it was time to slip on my mask and dance my way into the night. Which is just what I did. He had lost a step or two since I saw him in Philly circa 2002, but still they are few who can hold a torch to such funkiness.
