CAN I KICK IT? / feat 13 Assassins / Recap

Props to everyone who trooped through the snow to attend CAN I KICK IT? last Tues.  Despite the snow, we’re fortunate to have caught the downside of the passing storm and those who came caught a classic – 13 Assassins.

Thanks to Songbyrd for hosting, salute to our vendors Earl’s Closet and New Moon Made for braving through and setting up, and much appreciated to everyone who spread the word.

CAN I KICK IT? / feat Kick Boxer / Recap

On Tues. we introduced CAN I KICK IT? to 2018 and what better way to bring in the new year than doing so in-style.  Nu Wears, a new men’s accessories line by notable producer SlimKat76, held down the pop-up shop – upping our “style game” as well as the “style-game” for those fashion-forward people who bought the brand’s hand crafted ties and handkerchiefs.

Thank you to everyone who attended, props to Songbyrd for hosting and shouts to Terry for holding down the bar, salute to Nu Wears for supporting, and much appreciated to everyone who spread the word.  Lastly, salute to DJ Iran for dropping some gems on the turntables.  If you stayed long enough you got blessed with some rare samples.

Next up, on Tues. Feb. 27th we bring you a classic from the Jackie Chan archive – Drunken Master.  See you then and for the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
