After the mt. pleasant show we swung through DETROIT and played a quick show and chilled and did an interview with the homie ROBO ROBB for his radio show/blog. Then immediately went to UPSTATE NY. Just a short drive from detroit we made our way to ROCHESTER to rock the stage with Gillateen GILLY, very dope MC and very good host. The show in rochester was at the dubland underground, thanks gilly for another great show. rochester was illy.

We were there one night then decided to check out the capitol of NY and headed over to ALBANY where we checked out the whole downtown area.. Be sure to go to the attached photo album and check it out , the place is amazing. We also got a chance to record a track with the homie GM out there in ALBANy, upstate was great, good shows, good people, good tracks, and dt albany was really really dope

great escape tour MOUNT PLEASANT.. mc pigpen

AHHH.. mount pleasant. The first time we came here we probably had one of the most ridiculous shows ever, it was a last minute thing that we got off of indy on the move. And no people came. HOWEVER we did meet KIM at the coffee shop. She shall remain kim only so that none of you biting as rappers try to steel our kim from us. She has ended up being a true force, a person that has helped us out in many ways and has our back in this music biz like no body else. LOVE KIM..
Anyway kim got us a show at a hukah lounge this time around on the tour and it was a great show. Lots of really cool people came out and showed support and love and the music flowed with the wonderful sounds of MODERN GENTLEMEN and DUSK ONE along with myself and PAT MAINE. Picked up some new pat maine and pigpen shirts. Again thanks to Kim. BUT this time in Mt. PLEASANT WAS MUCH MORE PLEASANT. btw i look ridiculous in this picture........ for more pics of michigan CLICK HERE...

GREAT ESCAPE TOUR... WI... mc pigpen


WISCONSIN.. we love ya.. The great escape tour made our way to the dairy land, and i gotta tell you it was really dope in every way. We went to Milwaukee which was a really cool town. It was my first time in Milwaukee. A crazy cool hipster town, but the hipsters here a little different, im not sure how to classify them. The show in milwaukee was really cool it was in an old theatre. The venue was huge and there was a lot of great talent. GOOD TIMES.. peace to nick ramsey, peace to J SCRIBE, and thanks tochelsea for letting us stay at the crib..
Then the next day we got invited to play at this all day outdoor music festival called the dan jam. This event was really really dope. It lasted all day and had bands, singers, poets, hip hop, food, and other events. Really talented people and a really good time, once again thanks to Nick. I accidentally had so sick on my song line up and got about half way through before i realized i was in front of a bunch of families, ie. soccer moms and kids and shit lol. BUT it still went really well and i was able to actually censor it pretty good live..

great escape tour OMAHA mc pigpen


more photos of this event CLICK HERE


THE GREAT ESCAPT TOUR crushes on, we landed in Omaha NE, which general yields very mixed results for shows. But let me tell you this was one of the best damn shows of the tour, Omaha can be funny a bit with its eclectic mix of hip hop kids, juggalos, horror core, and rockers that always seem to come out to our shows. however tonight was really really dope.. Oh there was still an eclectic mix as always of the same crew, but they are all really really cool here. The show was live, lots of local talent, crowd was way involved, two dope female mc's, and it did not in any way lack the usual interesting crowd, however this time the crowd was very into it.. THANKS OMAHA, thanks to SURREAL as always for holding us down, mic fantastic, pscych b, lunatic, KILO crackroxx, Trashman.. thank you all.. VERY VERY DOPE NIGHT,,

great escape tour, DALLAS, mc pigpen

DALLAS.. what the fuck is going on with this heat down here, 100 + and its humid as hell. im sick of the damn heat. But regardless we had a really dope time here in D TOWN. We went out the first night here because we had the night off . We tried to go down to deep ellum however to our dismay its pretty much a ghost town, for the most part all of the restaurants, and bars are closed down. The few remaining tattoo shops seem like there on the virge of moving to a damn strip mall area.. SUCKS.. Then we cruised up to greenville area, still pretty dead. But managed to meet a group of really cool people at a bar there and it turned into a party..
The dallas show was really really dope. .place called the green elephant, Much love to POOR VIDA, dj croix, dj trek, held it down, as well as goat, jackrabit, art of fact, and everyone else that played.. thanks guys . The sound at the venue was really really DOPE... I put more photos on my website look below for the link. or click the pic

Alive and well tour ST. LOUIS to MICHIGAN mc pigpen

WOW.. where to begin?
St. Louis show was great. Live bands from all genres. We showed up met some really cool people. played some short sets and then jammed out with a live band. It was after the show when things got really cool though. We met up with some local mc's and legendary blog king byron crawford to go have b-fast/late night meal at this real divey spot called the courtesy. You can now see a pig pen/pat maine sticker on the milk machine in the Courtesy cafe, South side ST. LOUIS. Thanks to the awesome waitress/server who was talkin about stabbing juggalos and smoking cigs when we first walked in pig and pat are forever remembered at the courtesy.
Traverse city mi. was an 11 hour drive from st. louis. spent most of it talking music with Kosha dillz, pat maine and dusk. only to get nearly to Traverse City and realize that the road was closed and end up taking a 2 hour detour that made us late to the show. We rolled up on the venue and it looked fully packed on the inside so we were stoked. Unfortunately when we were parking and packing our merch someone got hit in the face with a bottle. and the cops cleared out the whole bar. BUT we killed it for the remaining crowd and it turned into a dope night KOSHA DILLZ is a beast to say the least.

Well im out of here the cafe lady is bitching at Kosha dillz for being on his cell phone and we must bounch.. MUCH LOVE from the alive and well tour. mc pigpen
