January 16, 2014

Rap N' Roll 2015 e-flyer

What the funk?

Dalton Higgins presents Rap N’ Roll: The Afro Alternative Music Showcase

This “urban alternative” concert experience features the genre-bending electronic, punk, reggae, soul and nouveau-rap contributions of Complaints Dept, Adrian X, Pursuit Grooves, 88 Days of Fortune’s Ayo Leilani, Brendan Philip / Jahmal Tonge (Fake Art Records) and some very Special Guests – musical mavericks who are reshaping the urban music landscape. Afro-punk’d. Blipster approved.

Tired of predictable BET (or commercial “urban” radio) Top 20 playlists that take pleasure in trafficking low musicianship and hip hop and R&B caricatures?

Interested in Jimi Hendrix, Janelle Monae, Bad Brains, Flying Lotus, Grace Jones, Frank Ocean, Chronixx, Mos Def, Cody Chestnutt or Pro Era (including the late Capital Steeze)?

Then this carefully calculated & curated music showcase is for you!

Where: The Piston (937 Bloor St West @ Ossington – Toronto, Canada)

When: Thursday February 27, 2014

Time: 9pm

Damage: $10
