LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – While big name acts like Sam Smith and My Morning Jacket brought in the crowds at Forecastle this year, it was the little Ocean Stage tucked under the interstate that packed in Saturday’s most surprisingly raucous crowd.

Local hip-hop artist Dr. Dundiff worked hard to get himself into the lineup at Forecastle and he brought as many friends with him as he could.

Billed as Dr. Dundiff and friends, the Doctor was joined on stage by the who’s who of local hip-hop acts – many of whom he produces.

Everyone from Shadowpact and Touch AC to Jalin Roze and Bird Zoo – including 1200 Music, Bonez KY and Smoke Shop Kids – packed on to the small stage to drop verses and, basically, put on a big party in celebration of Louisville’s underground music scene. Beach balls, water guns and a hot pink wig added up to one of the better shows we saw all weekend. There’s something about a bunch of guys having a good time on stage that really catches on with an audience.

Of course, everyone was bound to have a good time when local hero Jim James took the stage to join the party. Simply finishing the set adding some backing vocals – the energy was electric and there probably wasn’t anyone happier than Dr. Dundiff himself who gave Jim James a big hug at the end.
