Remember this name: Jack Preston. His performance was one of the best I witnessed at the recent A3C Hip Hop Fest. And dude is prolific: The Atlanta-based producer/musician/MC's new EP, Trouble, is the fifth project he has released this year.
On top of that, he's been collaborating and performing live with a host of local artists, from noise-folk experimentalists Back Pockets to jazzy afro-punkster Bosco. Yeah, the cat has range.
The new five-song EP features production from him, including two instrumental tracks. My favorite of the moment is the title joint, "Trouble":
His EP release party and performance (with backing band the Dojo Collective) goes down tonight, so drop what you're doing and head on over if you wanna be up on thangs. I have a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more from Mr. Preston in the near future.
Another CL favorite Sa-Roc opens the show with DJ Sol Messiah. $5 (includes a copy of Trouble). 10:30 p.m. The Sound Table, 483 Edgewood Ave. 404-835-2534. www.thesoundtable.com.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
