“It Don’t Mean A Thang”!!!

Date: SATURDAY, MAY 22

Time: 10A (music scene) or 4PM (club scene)

Location: ENGINE 11 FIREHOUSE TAVERN, 30 North Ave. NE (next to North Ave Marta Station)

FluxSIMP, and Q-San are the artists. They came by and tracked their verses last week and they are FANTASTIC! Mike Moore and his crew at Studio 8 are doing the production so you already know it’s going to look professional. Atlanta’s Burn Unit and Down South Swing are the dancers The blending of their distinct styles on the floor is going to be monumental. G.P.W.F.L.Y. is to act as the band. Now all we need is the cool kitties and finger poppin’ daddies to come out and fill the club. 2 dollar beers and 4 dollar cocktails will be available!

We are asking everybody to dress in something that could be considered “period attire”, but with this aforementioned modern touch. We have attached some photos as examples. Draw influences from the likes of Janelle Monae and Andre Benjamin, while showcasing your own personal style. Think “Idlewild” meets “The Sartorialist”.

There will be 2 distinct scenes we need extras for: the music scene at 10am (dancers, band & emcees) and the club scene at 4pm. Please RSVP via email tobeko@beatstudies.com or leave a comment here to confirm your time slot and availability. Space is limited.

Please come show your love and get some face time on the camera for this video that is going to go completely VIRAL!

Presented by “STUDIO 8”. May 8th it’s going down at the:

Mattress Factory Studios

Bio(Courtesy of Answers.com):

One of the first rap groups to use a live band, Brooklyn’s Stetsasonic formed in 1981 and were also among the first to promote a positive black consciousness that found its ultimate expression in the so-called daisy-age sounds of De La Soul and the Jungle Brothers. The group consisted of DJs “Prince Paul” Huston and Leonard “Wise” Roman, keyboardist/drummer/DJ Marvin “DBC” Nemley, and rappers Glenn “Daddy O” Bolton, Martin “Delite” Wright, and Bobby “Frukwan” Simmons. Daddy O and Delite founded the group as the Stetson Brothers, after the hat company, and began performing in New York hip-hop clubs, picking up other members along the way. Their debut, On Fire, was released in 1986, but it was the follow-up, In Full Gear, that brought them critical acclaim and an R&B hit, “Sally.” 1991’s Blood, Sweat & No Tears was considered by many to be their best and most diverse album, but Daddy O decided that they had run out of ideas and broke up the band. He went on to work with Mary J. BligeQueen LatifahBig Daddy Kane, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as a producer and remixer. Meanwhile, Prince Paul had already established himself as a producer for his work with De La Soul and Fine Young Cannibals, and later worked with Frukwan in the Gravediggaz. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
