Calling Wendel Patrick multi-talented is an understatement. The 39-year-old Baltimore resident usually has a Fender Rhodes keyboard, two turntables, effects processors and a microphone for beat boxing and vocal percussion at his shows.
When Patrick bumped into Erik Spangler (aka: DJ Dubble8) after a closing performance at last year's Artscape, they talked about creating an improv-based hip-hop series. Last November, they created the Baltimore Boom Bap Society, which now performs monthly shows around the city.
The duo uses instruments to improvise with musicians and MCs they choose to perform with them, and their latest show is at the Windup Space at 9:30 tonight. He recently talked about his eclectic iPod, gummy bears and more.
Worst pet peeve? People who don't use turn signals. It takes almost no effort.
What song are you hating/loving right now? I'm loving J-Live's "Half A Glass"
