Prince Klassens' solo debut in Houston

So with gas prices higher than giraffe balls, The Prince still made his way to the 713. Prince Klassen (diggindeepquartet/ FORESTFIRE1983), originally from San Antonio, now in Austin, holds down a Saturday @ The Whisky Bar (5th and Lavaca) and works 2 jobs, one of them as an employee at Waterloo Records. He arrived in town around 4pm and NaNaChill and I decided to entertain him until he took the stage. Since there is no spots in town that make vegitarian barbacoa tacos, we took him to his favorite Vietnamese joint, Mai's.

Being in a Vietnamese state of mind, we suggested visiting some spas on the East Side of downtown to get a "lil boom boom" but time was an issue! Instead we headed over to Sound Exchange to do some diggin. There we ran in to Panhandle Slim a.k.a. Max G. Arnold, who was diggin as well and also on the bill that night doing a opening set for his birthday.

Klassen took the stage at 12:30am and opened up on the CDJ, with some glitch action that made the audience pause and observe. From funky disco, electro beats, and remixes, Klassen created a vibe that seemed a little to next level for Rock Box patrons. Regardless, honeys shook their tail-feathers and got nice and sweaty, of course drawing more attention to themsleves, "love it mayne." Others watched closely to the mixing skills from the Prince and by the end of the night one fan had so much fun they decided to pull their pants down and show the package, "I ain't sayin no names!"

Overall, Klassen rocked and entertained the crowd with his set. Rock Box will definately bring him back in the future for those that missed out. Don't sleep on the Prince. Big shout out to everyone that made it out, see ya next Thursday!
