We’re pleased to announce that we’re back this summer, partnering with the DowntownDC BID to conduct CAN I KICK IT? outdoors for their Summer Flicks series. This year we’ll back at Freedom Plaza and we’re excited to inform everyone that we’ll be adding more dates this time going from June 5th – July 10th and screening classics such as The Karate Kid, Kung Fu Hustle, and Bloodsport.
We look forward to seeing you there and for more info and to RSVP click here.
This month, Tues. May 22nd at Songbyrd, join us for our next edition of CAN I KICK IT? as we screen the cult martial arts classic Shogun Assassin. Some might even consider this film to be a hip-hop classic as it was sampled and given prominence by one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s founding member’s GZA for his legendary debut album Liquid Swords.

We have a number of firsts this week and to add to that list we’d like to announce the launch of WHAT’S GOOD(?) – an editorial series where we interview and profile select influencers, innovators, and cultural purveyors who’s tastes and work are akin to ours.
And with our first edition of WHAT’S GOOD(?), which drops Monday November 13th, we talk to Skeme Richards: world renowned DJ, rare collectibles connoisseur, and martial arts films aficionado (to name a few hats). Stay tuned for the drop.
Last week I was fortunate to get the shout about the screening of Spotify’s first documentary I’m with the banned.
Really liked how they flipped the editing to give it almost like a cinematic music video-feel.
Essentially I’m with the banned is a music initiative to empower artists and fans from different cultures to come together, and to amplify the voices of people and communities that have been silenced. The documentary focuses on a variety of issues that impact different communities today–from immigration to LGBTQ equality–through artist collaborations, performances and original content.
I’m with the banned chronicles a musical collaboration between six artists from Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, Yemen and Iran; the countries incorporated in the proposed travel ban, with six American artists such as Pusha T, Dr. Lonnie Smith, BJ The Chicago Kid, and K.Flay. And since the artists from the Middle East cannot enter the U.S. they and the American have to record in Toronto.
In addition the complimentary drinks and popcorn at E Street Cinema, where the screening was held in DC, the good people at Spotify saw that it was also only fit to do an after-party (open bar) at a spot downtown featuring artists from the documentary Moh Flow and DC’s own Oddisee.
I’m with the banned will air, in it’s entirety, on VICE this month so stay tuned and for the additional info about the doc click here and to check out the full event recap click Read the rest of this entry
