If you find yourself with tomorrow night wide open, you sad little wallflower, may we suggest checking out the opening night of Hip Hop on the Wall; a hip hop inspired art show that will be hosted in Latitude 53‘s community space from January 28 to February 11.
The opening night party starts at 8, features art (in case I hadn’t made THAT patently clear), specifically “hip hop-inspired huge graffiti panels and artist portraits” – a description that comes courtesy our friend Omar “A.O.K.” Mouallem. There’s going to be a lot of performance too; specifically, slam poetry from the Breath in Poetry Collective and music from DJ Weezl, reDef, Locution Revolution, DJ Budakron and one of our faves, The Joe.
The whole shindig benefits the Hip Hop in the Park Foundation, which describes itself as “a non-profit organization endorsing hip-hop expression in a non-violent and positive way.” (Read more about the group here).
The opening night revelry gets underway at 8 p.m., tickets are $10.
