Review: Oreo Jones “Cash For Gold” Release Show

Hi there! Space here.

Been super busy the past week, but I’ve got a treat for you today! Saturday night I went to Pioneer in Fountain Square for the “Cash for Gold” release show for Oreo Jones.

Indianapolis artist Oreo Jones, released a new project, Cash For Gold. It’s album and a zine that I’m super excited to check out. Oreo Jones very is a busy man in Indianapolis. He’s an artist, a rapper, host of TV show host Let’s Do Lunch with Oreo Jones, and the founder of the dopest Hip Hop Festival in Indianapolis, Cheerce.

I’ve seen Oreo preform some solo sets  this year, and I noticed that grooves had changed. He’s introduced a more experimental electronic sound. The beats are vast, droning, and pretty out there. This new sound is similar to and likely inspired by friend, producer, and Indianapolis artist DMA, Sedcairn Achrives. The two released an album together in 2013 so I shouldn’t really be surprised. DMA was even on bass during Oreo’s set.

Oreo’s bars are as fly as ever, and he was looking super swag in a dashiki and a black rimmed hat. I’m excited to give the album a listen.

Check out some photos from the show below. All photos were snapped by me with Impossible Project silver framed film.
