"Get Yo Block Rocked!" -BK'S Biggest Block Party Comes to DUMBO, Saturday Aug 15th!
What exact IS Rock the Block BK? Only the fastest growing one day urban arts festival in Brooklyn, showcasing the boroughs most talented artist. Last year August, it was held at THREE different locations in one day, Frank White (live performances, guest DJs, "B.I.G. Pimpin' " -the Biggie and Jay-Z tribute, plus food & drinks sold), Yume (spoken word, live painting, chicken & waffle brunch, the after party w/a private performance by Ernie Gaines!) and lastly Not Just Vintage/Bush Baby (sidewalk fashion show, and vendors). You bought one pass ($20), and got access to all three locales...DOPE!
This year, man we've grown! This time around we've relocated it to DUMBO, secured a huge loft for the live performances (artist tba) and the "B.I.G. Pimpin' " event, plus a live painting/fashion show! A whole block for vendors, with Rebar as the venue resevered for smaller acts and spoken word. With a larger after party that'll go till 4am! So are you down? BTW we're still looking for talent (artist, singers, poets, photogs, intern help, models, etc.) so just check us theMreport@gmail.com Let's make memories together.
