Fashion Citizen On The Move : The DMV President’s Day Hip Hop & Urban Rock Concert
This year I promised myself that I'd make an effort to attend more events in my "fashion citizen" capacity and after Kevin of FRESHE Entertainment contacted me to promote the concert here on the blog and attend the concert, I was all in. The venue was Slaviya Lounge in Adams Morgan, a quaint venue with the stage behind the main bar. I got a chance to meet the team behind the Bustamante DC x PHRK x Superior Worx collective( @RoSoBDC, @ClownPHRK, and @PHRKCHOPS) who just happened to be one of the sponsors of the event. It was good to actually meet the gentleman behind a few of the pieces that I've got in my closet. Check them out here. After chopping it up with those gents for a while, I ran into a few of the people I regularly tweet with like @BrandArtisan, @reneeCabactnoh and @jo_thestylust.
I wasn't there just to meet and greet, I was there to hear the artists as well. Fat Trel definitely made his presence known on stage and started the night off. Ra the MC hit the stage in a sequined dress with a live band backing her. She might've been in a dress but Ra ripped the stage like she was in jeans and timbs. Phil Ade did Hollywood and by that time, the night was in full swing while the crowd bopped to Phil Ade's hit. David Correy capped the night off with what he calls "urban rock" and if you don't know what that is, I urge you to Google David Correy and get familiar. As a matter of fact, Google all the artists and support their music. It was awesome to see folks put their heart and soul on stage and let their art flow through sound waves.
All the acts were great and it made for a great night of hip hop and urban rock. I ran into Kevin of FRESHE Entertainment near the end of the night for a few words of congrats and thanks, not to mention Kevin had on the dopest Gucci varsity jacket I'd ever seen. That was my night and I'm excited to go to more events and bring them to you here as well.
