Daaaaam! It's the weekend ALREADY?!? Not that I'm complaining but the weeks are going by mad fast it seems. Right? Well it official is now the count down to the "Rock the BlocK BK" event which will be huge for my reasons. For one, I'll be the first collabo event with Keistar Productions and the Minority Report...in BK...in years! Secondly, it will be the first appearance of famed DJ's Goldfinger & the legendary DJ Scratch (of EPMD)...in Brooklyn...in years!
Not to forget, it's a non-corporate sponsored Art festival in 3 locations at once, plus a B.I.G. & Jay-Z musical tribute (B.I.G. Pimpin') to top things off as a bonus, for the first time EVER...in Brooklyn (where else?)! All for $10 ALL day long. But before we get to that, here what's happening around town THIS weekend.
