BAY.NYC.Philly.ATL: Top Weekend Event List

posted on June 30th 2011 in Atlanta & featured & Music & Nitelife & oakland & Rich Medina & San Francisco with 0 Comments

The Bay FRIDAY NIGHT

“Friday’s event places the Supernatural Black Experience in the context of live performance. The speakers of the previous evening join with additional guest artists and are transformed into conduits of the divine spirit, celebrating ancestors – the Gods – with expressions of spirituality, sustainability, solidarity, and sovereignty delivered in music, food, & word. Bamuthi and jazz-hop virtuoso Kev Choice both pay homage to legendary jazz poet and social commentator Gil Scott-Heron; Johns channels soul diva Nina Simone, reborn as an Oakland b-girl; “rebel soul music” creator Martin Luther invokes guitar visionary Jimi Hendrix; and Medina lays down a deeply rhythmic soundscape which will touch on everyone from James Brown to Fela Kuti to Bob Marley to Michael Jackson. Ekundayo will provide the invocation for what promises to be an evening long to be remembered – in this world and the afterlife.”

SF: 7/2 Saturday Night

“This month we’d like to bring to you a very special guest DJ. As a matter of fact, this will be his first time DJing in the city of San Francisco. He currently resides in Atlanta and his resume speaks volumes. Bay Area, we’d like to introduce you to DJ Rasta Root. Rasta Root is currently the DJ for Phife (ATCQ) and Dwele. He’s a staple in the Atlanta nightlife rocking some of the ATL’s premier events. When Rasta Root is not in the “A” you can catch him on the international tip, doing what he does best – move the crowd”
