Okay folks we're in the home stretch portion of 5 days till Rock the Block BK, Brooklyn's BIGGEST urban arts festival and party. So to help you navigate your way around DUMBO, I've posted some "visual landmarks" to guide you along the way. Trust me, It's REALLY simple if you know how to follow instructions. To begin if you're traveling via mass transit best bet is to take the F train to York St. station. Last car going downtown from the city, 1st if heading from BK. Once out of that loooong station tunnel make a right on to Jay St. and stroll down one block.
Cross Front St. and you'll see ReBar plain as day, which is where the VONY spoken word lounge, food, drinks, bathrooms, DJ's and live acoustic acts will be hosted in. Cool? That's kicking off from 1pm-6pm. Then back open later for a special VIP after party (11pm-4am) w/DJ Trauma & DJ Goldfinger!
Walk further past Rebar to Pearl St. and to the right you'll see a court yard w/ a lone standing building there. THAT'S the Dumbo Loft space! That's we you can purchase either an ALL ACCESS VIP pass or simply pay for whatever event you intend on see that day. For instance 2pm-6pm is the "Canvas & Chaos" fashion show w/ the Ahficionados djaying and live performances. Then after a brief intermission, from 6:30-10:30pm the huge concert starts w/ Jeese Boykins III, Print, Honey La Rochelle, Heavy, & Yazarah! FIYAH! A brief intermission again, then the night time fun begins (10:30-2:00am) w/ Rock the Block BK and Keistar's "B.I.G. PIMPIN' " -B.I.G. & Jay-Z tribute party w/ DJ's Spinna & Scratch...DOPE!
Do remember this is an event to showcase the growing culture of talent dwelling and networking within our vast city, we're ust bring you our personal favorites in ONE DAY! FYI* there will be a vendor's maket place located on the SAME block as ReBar a few doors down (you'll pass it on your way to the Dumbo Loft) as well. Enjoy the day.
