DJ Shadow at Marathon Music Works w/ Teeko and Quiet Entertainer

So I found out about the show several months ago. So I was already going to be there. Then they added Teeko to the bill! I’ve been following Teeko for about a year ever since I saw him on the Mikidz show.

So, I wanted to make sure I was in attendance! But I was secretly dreaming about a way to get on the show. Then later on, I saw this video on Goalcast and that settled it.

So long story short, The fine people at Marathon Music Works plus the fine people working Deep Tropics worked their magic. And now I will be representing Nashville at this show. I can’t wait.
