Last week, Rob Sevier and Jon Kirby left on a mission trip to the Pacific Northwest to spread the figurative gospel on what Numero does, and how we do it.

Seattle: Set to an infinity loop of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Posse On Broadway” (Instrumental), we stopped by Sub Pop to grab a copy of the new Shabazz Palaces record and a set of spare keys. We also discovered the top ten reasons that Kurt Cobain is gay (circa October 1991).

Ferry rides are encouraged.

At the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, it was discovered that neither the Numero Group or the Phillips Brewery stagehands had slip mats. A call was placed to 1993, yielding two of these cushiony relics to keep our records slippery.

After Danny Brown exited the stage and we returned, the crowd mostly evaporated, save for two enthusiastic record collectors who turned out to be Psycho Les and Ju Ju (pictured) from the Beatnuts. Ju Ju lamented that we couldn’t remain on site in order to provide intermission music between sets by the Beatnuts, Kool Keith, and Del the Funkee Homosapien, who would all grace the Phillips Stage the following night. We couldn’t agree more.

On the ferry ride to Vancouver, we met another band from Rifflandia. Jon and Rob are in the background whilst BnW (Blondtron x Waspy) fill in the foreground.

Every single person we encountered in Vancouver was amazing and friendly and we have zero documentation to prove any of this. Thanks to Shad for the floorspace and Wifi, Tim from Kingfisher Bluez for letting us use his cell phone (and for the Toshi’s recommendation), and the whole entire crew at Pacific Rhythm Session for throwing the perfect party. Everyone every step of the way was remarkable and kind, and we dreamed sweet dreams of all the new friends and future friends, from the comfort of the Seattle-Tacoma Airport floor. Until next time, The Numero Group
