It's been a minute since the HHK NYC fellas teamed up w/ Rare Form to bring something fun and memorable to the masses. A couple of years back, Southpaw was the home to two editions of an event called Off the Books, part hip-hop karaoke and part dance party, spun by DJs Spinna and Evil Dee, respectively.
It's now 2009 and we've decided to ressurect that once again. But this time, we're gonna take it out in the sun. Governor's Island to be exact. Come out to a FREE, outdoor event on Saturday, August 15th and take part in LIVE @ THE BBQ. Same formula: your favorite hip-hop joints karaoke-style LIVE on stage w/ a special hour and a half intermission of nothing but classics (singles, remixes, album cuts, samples) spun by the one and only RICH MEDINA. Surrounded on all sides by water!
Here's the rough schedule:
12:00pm - Doors / sign-up
2:00pm - HHK set 1
3:30pm - Rich Medina
5:00pm - HHK set 2
6:00pm - End
As with all Hip Hop Karaoke shows, sign-ups are at a first come, first serve basis. We have two HHK sets to accomodate as many people as possible. Arrive early. We'd love for you to hang out all day if possible. Food and drink are sold on the island. This is the ONLY hip-hop related Governor's Island event of the summer so come through and have a good time w/ us. This is also an ALL AGES event.
How much is food and drink @ Governor's Island? Funny you ask...
