Now my name is MCA, I got a license to kill. I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill!

Vor genau einem Jahr erlag Adam „MCA“ Yauch seinem Krebsleiden. Heute an seinem ersten Todestag findet in Brooklyn der MCA Day statt, gestern morgen hat man dort den Adam Yauch Park eröffnet und weil wir alle nicht dort sein können, lasst uns Ärsche im Namen des MCA treten mit dem kompletten Wahnsinns-Livegig in Glasgow von 1999, gibt's hier als MP3. Unfassbare Show, so eine Band werden wir nie wieder kriegen. Und dass der Mann ohnehin unsterblich ist, wissen bereits kleine Mädchen:

The centerpieces of “MCA Day” will be the various visual installations displayed throughout the space. Attendees will get to see rare photographs of the band by renown music/skateboard photographer Glen E. Friedman who shot MCA, Michael “Mike D” Diamond, and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz before the trio became superstars. Pics by Sunny Bak, the photographer who captured the iconic image of the Beasties in front of the World’s Fair Globe, will also be a part of the exhibit.

Brooklyn artist and co-creator of the Jam Master Jay Foundation for Music’s “Jam Awards” Michael “Mr Kaves” McLeer will show some of his work, and fans will have the opportunity to present their pieces as well. The Beastie Boys fanthology project, Keep It On and On, will be showing artwork created by fans from around the world. For those people who will not be able to make it to New York City, Keep In On and On will run the images on their Facebook page throughout the day and provide free downloadable PDFs of the art.
