NYC: Pharoahe Monch and Baloji, Sat. July 2nd - FREE!
We've been anticipating Congolese/Belgian crooner Baloji's arrival in NYC for a while now, and this upcoming weekend he'll be touching down in the Big Apple for a visit. We're pretty much in love with everything about Baloji - his rad Sapeur style, his groovy voice, his French raps. So this Saturday, July 2nd, come celebrate Emancipation Day (commemorating the historic end to slavery in New York state) with Pharoahe Monch as the headliner, and Baloji and DJ Manchildblack on the bill. Completely free (with a $5 suggested donation), the festivities began at 4pm, with Bajoli going on at 6pm, followed by Pharoahe Monch at 7pm. All the events are at the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn (1698 Bergen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11213). Check the flyer above for more details.
