DOOMSDAY: MF Doom on the cover of his 2004 collaboration album, Madvillainy, with producer Madlib.
I told you so.
Hate to say it, but I heard through the digital grapevine (e-mail/MySpace) that Tight Bros. promoter Randy Castello was only one of many pissed people after MF Doom's lip-synched performance at MJQ last Thursday, Dec. 13.
I wasn't there to see it for myself, but sort of predicted as much in our Holiday Guide preview of MF Doom's show that ran a couple of weeks ago. (Click here to read it.)
Anyway, thanks to Marc Crifasi (formerly of WRAS-FM [88.5] and Criminal Records), who reposted Randy's original MySpace post. Funny stuff. Although my gut tells me that it's all a part of Doom's act.
To be continued, perhaps...
Subject: Repost: MF Doom in not a nice person
Body: On top of this when I called the number he kept trying to offer me a Macy's gift card. What a dick!
Many apologies go to all of you who came out to the MF DOOM show last night at MJQ and paid $30 of your hard earned money only to watch him lip sinc (sic) for 20 minutes at 1:30 in the morning. This was by far one of the single worst experiences Iâve had as a club promoter and I sincerely apologize if you walked away feeling cheated. To make matters even worse MF DOOMS appointed doorman took off with all the money from the door after the show! As soon as we realized the money was stolen we decided to help ourselves to all of MF DOOMS merchandise which included a bunch of T shirts and posters. So, in an effort to make it up to everyone who walked away feeling cheated, weâre giving away all the merchandise for free so come and get it while supplies last!! And if thatâs not enough, feel free to let MF DOOM aka Daniel Dumile know how you really feel by calling him at his home in Kennesaw Georgia.

Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
