After Growing to 50 People, We’re Ditching the Office Completely: Here’s Why – Open

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Uncategorized

Buffer (link to article) ditched their office for productivity without restrictions. That’s a great move especially for what they do.

I have found Buffer to be a magnificent tool. It’s made for not only social media managers but the average Joe who is constantly on the move and want to make sure their admirers alway know what’s happening at the right time.

One day it will be beneficial for me to work from anywhere and earn an income that allows me to do the things I’d like to.

Thank you for sharing Buffer. I urge everyone to check them out. These guys have become a lifesaver for Joes (my name is Jay) like me.

Thanks for reading.

The Summer Weekend Riot Tour

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in The Real Clash Blog

Unless you catch us at the Tampa Bay June Acoustic Music Showcase this year, #TSWRT is most likely to be our last show for at least a month.

Come out to see what we have going on. I heard there will be raffles for Apple products, Vans Warped Tour tickets and other amazing giveaways. A bit of a warning nudge, dress for the summer. It will get hot.

#DISCLAIMER: We will not be responsible for any hospitalization from dehydration that may occur if the performance sets the stage ablaze (purchase insurance).

Civil Youth was selected as one of the top 4 bands out of 100’s that participated in the battle of the bands. It provided them with the chance to open up for 21 Pilots at this year’s event. Find out the results of that contest soon by following them on Facebook.

Next Friday bare witness to some great sonic wizardry as we open for these boys followed by our friends Natalie Claro & Glass House Point who both are suspected to reveal new music that day. Tickets are available at Ticketfly or before the show by any band member at a reduced rate.

See you soon! Peace! ✌

We were invited by Ian Beckles to perform at the first Dignitary Party hosted at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. It was a great networking experiencing. Many people had an opportunity to witness us in our element. The food was great, Reginald Wrangler and Eric Darius also put on exemplary performances. All in all it was a night most of us will not soon forget.

DESTINATION OKEECHOBEE ROUND 2

Remember last week when we shared with you that we were in a race to be selected to perform at this year’s Okeechobee Music & Arts Festival? Guess what?! We made it to Round 2 of the competition for our region! Every sincere  Click, Like, Comment and Share by you, made this turn into something real.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Now it’s up to us to honor your love, doing things the only way we know how, by kicking ass and winning this thing. Don’t you think?

Although we have not been given the full details, this is what we know so far. The next leg of the race, for The Real Clash, takes place at State Theatre on February 17th. Fortunate enough to get this far, we’re confident that we will play the OMF this year.

On Wednesday, fatefully fitting, February 17th, The Real Clash hopes we can count on every one of you to be in the audience cheering us on. A humongous factor in determining our success is all of our TRC Family being in that theatre, tearing the roof off, making it undeniable who will be the “last band standing” as the smoke settles. So please, we hope you don’t mind if we ask a little more of you.

As more details come through we’ll keep you updated!

Thank you! See you on the 17th!

Clash Wednesday Review

The Real Clash presents debut album Clash Wednesday this Saturday

The release party at Crowbar also features sets by Flat Land, Dynasty and Rahim Samad

Posted By on Thu, Jan 7, 2016 at 6:00 AM

 clash_wednesday.jpg

The Real Clash has been appearing in the pages of CL ever since nabbing a cover story back in November of 2013. At the time, the hip hop ensemble spawned from St. Pete College’s MIRA program was in the midst of ramping up their presence in the local scene, and more than two years later, having established a rep on both sides of the Bay, The Real Clash is finally unleashing a proper full-length.

Most of Clash Wednesday was produced at MIRA Studios and Rock Garden Recording, and the 11 tracks showcase TRC’s vibrant synthesis of hip hop, soul, R&B, jazz, funk and rock, taking the spirited live energy and chemistry they maintain so effortlessly on stage and refining it for the studio. The mix is good — you can actually hear what the drums, keys, guitar and bass are doing, both individually and as a well-oiled whole — and the production embellishments manage to enhance (and not detract from) songs that were already great before they were given the studio treatment. Case in point: the band’s anthem about burning up stereotypes, “Effigy,” has heavier drama by-way-of synth swells and strings plus a rather fine breakdown of beat-boxing and violins, while the clever bumping and creeping attack of “Stupid” has its own little percussive interlude tucked amid the fiery crashing “We get stupid, that means outrageous” chorus. Shadcore and Jay Acolyte still prove fine rap foils to each other, balanced by the melodic vocal thrust of Eliana “Voxx” Blanchard, who varies between robust belting, tuneful crooning and snotty rhyme-slinging.

The Real Clash presents Clash Wednesday at a bombastic Crowbar blowout this Saturday, with support from some other high quality hip-hop rooted talents: Flat Land, Dynasty and Rahim Samad.

The Real Clash Album Release Party takes place on Sat., Jan. 9, at 9 p.m., Crowbar, Ybor City; admission is $10.

Clash Wednesday Is Here

This is a very exciting moment for the band.

The Real Clash started in mid 2012 together as a group of college students with mismatched opinions about how far an institution based musical ensemble would take them outside of a classroom. It was an undertaking, that until they went into the studio for the first time to record, wasn’t anything more than something they were doing for a grade every semester for extra credit.

Shadcore and Jay Acolyte, co-founders of TRC and two out of four of the remaining original members, had a vision that there was need for a curriculum that shed light on the influential area of Hip-Hop that does not solely promote many derogatory and often misogynistic themes as much of today’s commercial rap music does.

The album is done and it’s pretty much the dopest fusion of Hip Hop I’ve heard in a while. This record will set the mood for any occasion. From start to finish it’s hit after hit after hit. Be sure you get a copy when it drops Jan. 8th.

On January 9th, the very next day, our album launching party is happening and will feature some of our good friends and best local talent Rahim Samad, Flat Land and Dynasty.

So bring your dancing shoes. Meet us at the Crowbar @ 9p on the 9th and prepare for lift off. It’s only $10 at the door. Mention this article and get a free download of “Clash Wednesday!”
