Who’s Got the Happy Hour?! – A Happy Hour Celebrating Boot Camp Clik

April 10, 2014 Leave a comment


happy_hour2We put these on hold to find a new spot which is actually like a homecoming because we’ll back at Lounge of 3.  I’ve been a fan of Boot Camp Clik since day 1 when it was just Black Moon and its been dope to see them evolve as a certifiable force within the music industry.  It was also dope to have met most of the crew (all cool cats) as well as having worked with Ruck and Rock (when their 1st project Nocturnal dropped in ’96) during my intern days with Kalodge Projects in NYC.  We conducted a photo shoot featuring them for a streetwear line called Head Hunters on the rooftop of a spot in BK.

At any rate, to RSVP click here and to view the range of flyers clik Read more…
