CAN I KICK IT? / “The New Legend of Shaolin” / Recap

pic1

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.

Stay tuned for our next CAN I KICK IT? which will be Tuesday May 26th.  For more recap pics click Read the rest of this entry

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.
