Your Guide to FarFetched, the Collective Busting Music Scene Segregation

373222_477509862259298_70273738_n.jpeg
This week's music feature is the story of the fledgling music collective FarFetched. RFT Music writer Ryan Wasoba describes the group early in his story: "The FarFetched Collective is exactly what its name implies, a once-improbable union of musicians across race, gender and genre lines. To its figurehead Damon Davis, the title means something else. 'I was trying to think of something that would say what's next, what's left field,' Davis says. 'I think it really describes what we're doing, something out of this world. I have a real space obsession, like space travel and futurism. FarFetched is like that. We are the weird, we are the innovators, at least in my mind.'"

It's a colloquialism, Trace. See, adding "ass" onto another word serves to bring emphasis. In an informal setting, such as a popular music performance, it is exceedingly commonl to speak in this manner. I've actually met Tef Poe, and my wife has worked with him while organizing events to benefit social causes, and he seemed like a smart enough guy. I'd also like to point out that the truly educated use proper capitalization - for instance, at the beginning of sentences.

'segregated-ass?' what does that supposed to mean exactly? segregation isn't his problem - education is.
