Moving on the Wires: The Afrofuturist Affair, JJ Doom and The Noisettes

* On July 13, the Afrofuturist Affair will be launching their website Afrofuturistaffair.com. Here is a description of the website from the organization:

The site serves a dual role. It functions foremost as a landing page for the organization, where you can find out more detailed information about our mission, upcoming events, and purchase tshirts in support of our mission. In its second role, the website is also a personal site for the Afrofuturist Affair’s founder and Creative Director, Rasheedah Phillips. You will also find a sneak preview of the upcoming novel Recurrence Plot, if you look hard enough;)  In serving these multiple functions, we have tried to make the site as interactive and stimulating as possible. We intend for the site to continue to evolve alongside the organization, so more will be added over time.

* Jneiro Jarel and Doom (MF Doom) joined together to create the group JJ Doom and will be releasing an album on August 21st called Keys to the Kuffs. The album will feature guest appearances from Beth Gibbons of Portishead, Khujo Goodie of Goodie Mobb, Boston Fielder and Muthawit, and Damon Albarn of Blur and the Gorillaz.
