CAN I KICK IT? / feat Shogun Assassin / Recap

Now that we’re screening CAN I KICK IT? on both floors of Songbyrd (three screens in total) we’ve been able to amplify the experience via more space for attendees along with benefiting from the sound system from Songbyrd’s first floor.

Thanks for everyone who attended and spread the word and thanks to Songbyrd for hosting.

We’re taking a short break in June with us again conducting CAN I KICK IT? outdoors, in partnership with the DowntownDC BID, at Freedom Plaza, so we hope everyone can attend.  The outdoor versions, due to the huge scale, take our experience to another level and should not be missed.  They take place every Tues from June 5 – July 10, so be sure to check out the schedule here.

Beyond that, we’ll back at Songbyrd on Tues July 24 where we’ll be screening Steven Seagal’s classic Under Siege.
