CAN I KICK IT? / “BIG TROUBLE in LITTLE CHINA” / Recap

IMG_20150728_180712

Despite the rain, this edition of CAN I KICK IT? was one of our biggest, yet.  We actually had to post-pone last month’s installment to due to severe heat and then the storming that followed.  And since we received a great deal of interest regarding the movie (Big Trouble in Little China), in addition to 2-Tone and I being fans as well, we decided to screen it for our July event.

Props to everyone that attended, the staff at Marvin for holding us down, Alexis, TC, and Cherisse for our PR/marketing support, and huge salute to Sherry, Frankie and their Soul and Ink team for conducting their live screen printing experience.  Stay tuned, as we’ll definitely have them back for other screenings.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the end of Aug for our next screening and for more recap pics Read the rest of this entry

CAN I KICK IT? / 5/26 / Screening “REVENGE of the NINJA” starring Sho Kosugi

“Revenge of the Ninja” is one of my FAVORITE joints.  Such a classic 80’s martial arts film that really popularized ninjitsu (showing a variety of the martial art form’s tenets) and had every kid that summer rocking a ninja costume.  Sho Kosugi (the lead) is an icon in the game and this film, including it’s former – “Enter the Ninja” along with Sho’s other films, certainly back my statement.

See you guys Tues May 26th and for more info click here.

The weather is finally starting to break and the turnout for our most recent CAN I KICK IT? certainly reflected that, along with a pretty expansive promotion and marketing effort.  There’s not too much that beats a 70 degree Spring evening in DC and “The New Legend of Shaolin” had attendees locked from the opening scene and Jet Lei’s kid co-star, 9 year-old Xie Mao (Tze Miu), provided a surprising boost with dynamic martial arts skills that rivaled his adult co-stars.

Props to everyone that attended; salute to Marvin for hosting, special shouts to our amazing bartender Alyssa, Madison Davenport PR, Som Records, and Palace 5ive , DSE Live – our media partners, and thanks to TC, Cherisse, and Duane for the promotional lift.  Thanks also to Lyft – our transportation sponsor.

Our 1st CAN I KICK IT? of 2015 was nothing short of dope.  Despite not having done one since Nov. ’14 and us conducting it in another room in Marvin, people showed and proved with their attendance and really engaging both facets of the event: the movie and the accompanying music.  Salute to all of the attendees, Marvin for bringing us back, Shaw Bros Films for asking us to be apart of their re-emergence campaign, Madison Davenport PR, Som Records and Palace 5ive, and Lyft as our transportation sponsor.
