Saidah Blount is a music and pop culture junkie born and bred in Kansas City, Mo. From an early age, it became quickly apparent to her family that music would be intrinsic to her life; so much so that by the time Saidah was a teenager, her music magazine, cassette and LP collection soon rivaled many local mom & pop record stores in the metro area.
Known for deftly mixing her interests in new music and nightlife culture, Saidah has been an active participant in NYC culture for over a decade. From journalism to DJing to her day job in marketing and brand strategy, Saidah's been lucky to work with the best musicians, magazines, and brands out there.
If she's not on a dancefloor or seeing a live show, it's good odds that you can find Saidah either baking treats, reading, taking long walks in the park or sporadically updating her music and pop culture blog, This'll Be On My Videotape.

It seemed slightly odd to be heading to the Mercury Lounge on a cold and blustery Sunday night in order to see local buzz bands Free Blood and Preacher and the Knife. To be honest, I’ve most memorably experienced both of these bands in very intimate, sweaty, and BYOB-friendly conditions — i.e. the uniquely tried and true NYC house party.
