“THE ENDOWMENT is a celebration of Hip Hop culture and the spirit of resistance that drives it. Featuring some of the most dynamic, boundary-pushing performers in the Twin Cities hip hop scene, as well as dancers, poets, and the legendary DJ Kool Akiem on the wheels of steel, the intergenerational lineup is based around the theme of “what we inherit, we pass on.” In that spirit, the show is also a fundraiser for Twin Cities organization TruArtSpeaks, as well as the birthday celebration of the organization’s founder, Tish Jones.”
The good people over at Studiiyo 23 will celebrate their 5th anniversary this weekend with a massive block party. Not only will they be hosting the stacked lineup of Finding Novyon, Greg Grease, Metasota, BdotCroc, Sarah White, Bionik and special guests Mike The Martyr & DJ Low; they’ll also be throwing their 6th Sneaker & Arts Exchange. This event has flown a little under the radar but we guarantee that it will not disappoint, there will be plenty of things to get into for all ages. That being said make sure you drink responsibly around the youngins, mark your calenders and stay tuned for more.
