After the success of our 1 year anniversary we wanted to hit the ground running for our second year. To show appreciation for our environment we invited the upper echelon of the DMV music scene to party with us. As always DJ Underdog will be taking us through time and space, but in addition The Cornel West Theory will be rockin Fela covers down stairs and Slimkat78 will be joing Underdog on the 1′s and 2′. The thought of it makes my heart twitter honestly. If you managed to miss the 1 year anniversary you can scroll down and check out some photos.
When: April 29th, 2010
Where: Bossa Lounge
Why: Because you need to get down and dirty… I know you do.
Slimkat78 has been blessing hip hop heads with material for years. The DMV based producer has most recently been noted for his work on the Diamond District Album “In the Ruff” and on Yu’s latest Album “Before Taxes”
About The Cornel West Theory:
The Cornel West theory is a Washington, D.C. based hip-hop band. With the blessing of Dr. Cornel West, the Princeton University professor and renowned author, the band takes its name from his prolific writings and philosophies that have shaped contemporary thought throughout the world.
Inspired by the rich musical history of the nation’s capital and the struggles of poor people worldwide, the band was created in 2004 as a response to social oppression everywhere. They are here to deliver music that holds a mirror up to the world, with a core focus on political, cultural and spiritual commentary.
The band’s purpose is to speak the truth to the masses, while communicating to young and old alike. They create soulful music that entertains, informs, educates and provokes awareness and activism. Their sound, filled with drums, bass, piano, and electronic sounds, contains elements of all great music – from home grown Go-Go to jazz to rock to hip-hop.
Their music is rooted in hip-hop, but that single genre does not define the range and variety of the musicians in the group
