Exciting “Green Shade Glow” Performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe – 2/27

I am so excited to say I had a blast at my performance at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, New York City for Open Mic Monday on February 27, 2012.  I had a game plan and went in and execute with a lot of fun.   I had the green shades on tonight getting live (reason I wore them, because their spotlight be super bright, to blind someone on stage), I also perform the 1st single off my upcoming Hip-Hop Ep album “The Burna Effect” in which I decided to go with a photo I already had as the album cover.

I performed a little warm up freestyle called, “Get Up” in which is just a joint I use or going to tend pick up once in a while to fill my 5 minute time slot at Open Mics I will be attending.  I almost forget, the song/freestyle will be on the album (silly me), and I also performed “Girls” which is the first single off the album in which this performance is the first time I performed an original song with a beat created and produced by myself, so I was extra proud of that fact.

Either way the performance went like clock work, even though minimal and simple, I felt I am warming up to stage performances.  I can’t wait to get better. I did happen to have a prop malfunction which was quite funny to me, but it didn’t hinder what I was doing, so the show went on.

I insert a few comedic lines and storytelling in between songs, which worked pretty well.  I think I am going to continue to test those out, as well as my witty stage introduction in which I try to get some laughs in quick by the audience, because overall I want everyone to have a good time.

Thanks, for taking the time to read my experience and I hope you come and see my perform one day soon.  I should be doing many more shows at the Nuyorican and other places throughout the year.  But you can always see and listen to my works via Soundcloud ReverbNation and Vimeo Youtube if you can’t make it to a show or in a different city or country.




Thanks for reading again, and I hope to entertain you all, and take you behind the scenes of my journey.

PS: I will be updating this post and add some cool features, links and pics.  I am just rushing to get some other stuff done right now. 🙂 Have a great day.

Always Bitching, Well Wishes – Jixi Fox – [#Poetry]



Always Bitching…

I don’t know why she always bitching,
As I step in the kitchen I get that stare,
I walk away real fast I just don’t care,
I get up out the bed, put on pants don’t look back,


Well Wishes…

….coming soon

An Artist’s Struggle of 2011, Jixi Fox

It’s been a very tough year being myself on a creative side.  I have idea after idea not to see them produce into results.  The pain of not being recognized for my true talents has been getting to me a little bit.  Entertaining others and making sure everyone has a good time is what I what to do and is very good at but I haven’t gotten the chance to do so.

I can’t say the whole year was a bust, even though a fighting through my infamously known, “Fall Curse of Fail Productivity” ummm that’s just some name I made up to represent that every fall project I have had for the last 3 years were failures.  When I say failure, I don’t mean of the creative side, but  the deliver and being ready on time.

I am ready to break curse, I am ready to be me, I am ready to overcome my struggles and unleash my creativity, to entertain the world.  My album is on the way and so is my book.
