Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat The Golden Child / Recap

Our last Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? screening featuring The Golden Child, despite it being cut short due to rain, was more than memorable.  The story starts with this event being (or supposed to at least) a make-up for our screening of the same movie, which also got rained out on its original date!

Add to that that it rained earlier on Tues which begged the questioned, would we still be able to do it?  We received a wave of inquiries via social media and email asking if we’d still be conducting the screening, especially with it being our last and The Golden Child being a favorite for a lot of people.  Lo and behold, we ended up getting the green light from the DowntownDC BID and to our excitement we were greeted by over 200 eager attendees.

And in our effort to not disappoint, 2-Tone spun one of his best sets, DowntownDC BID surprised guests with free ice-cream, and everyone got a sample of the high impact Jiu Jitsu (martial arts) demonstration from Darcio Lira Jiu Jitsu.  Thanks to our Jay Coleman for setting that up!

Thanks again to the DowntownDC BID for bringing us back for another run, props to Darcio Lira Jiu Jitsu for the demo, shouts to our cadre of media partners who helped spread the word about this year’s festivities, and special thanks to everyone who attended.  We certainly hoped you enjoyed the events as much as we enjoyed giving them and we look forward to seeing everyone as we’re back home at Songbyrd DC for our monthly CAN I KICK IT? events.  That being said, catch us there Tues. July 24th for the screening of Under Siege.

Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat Bloodsport / Recap

Our screening of Bloodsport insisted that you not overlook it – complete with an amazing DJ set by P.U.D.G.E Mental and an eye opening martial arts demonstration by Terence Nicholson, who conducted both a hand-form and weapons-form.

We essentially had the perfect trio: a thorough DJ set, which got the crowd open for a masterful martial arts demonstration, capped off by our CAN I KICK IT? version of Bloodsport.

See everyone next Tues July 17 for the final film of our outdoor series feat The Golden Child.  After that, we’re back at Songbyrd on Tues Aug 24 for Under Siege starring Steven Seagal.

Thank you to everyone who attended and thanks to our media partners for spreading the word.

Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? / feat Romeo Must Die / Recap

We’re halfway thru our outdoor series and its great to see how, each week, the crowds continue to grow, in addition to how diverse the crowds are from literally every category of demographic.  Age, sex, ethnicity, religion, etc…these events are a testament to how art, not to mention a good time, can bring people together, from all walks of life.

Thank you to everyone who attended (including those who participated in the 90’s costume contest), thanks to DJ Miss H.E.R for setting the tone, and shouts to our media partners.

We look forward to seeing everyone next Tues. July 10 for Jean Claude Van-Damme’s breakout movie Bloodsport.

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.
