WHERE: AUGUSTA HOUSE, 152 Augusta Ave., Toronto, ON
It's hot on the block and we plan on keeping it that way. This month we will be playing strictly Westcoast music. Come out and get down to the sounds of NWA, the late Easy-E & 2Pac, Dr. Dre, DJ Quik, and more. Come throw up your gang sign and rep your set...
Drink Specials: $4 all domestic beer and $4 bar rail mix drinks
Featured Performance by: The I.N. Crowd
MC Welldone, Harr1s aka H1, Shafiq, and Big Chips come together to make the I.N. Crowd. This rap group is no stranger to rocking shows in the downtown ciruit, and is expected to be releasing their 3rd mixtape titled, "Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll".
Hip Hop exists in its fullest effect when the community that supports it comes together and unifies for a common cause. Hip Hop culture manifests through the creative self-expression of individuals who embody its spirit in their respective art-forms. This power of creative self-expression, the unification of a community for the great purpose that is Hip Hop, happens at The Cypher...
Artists sign up to take part in group performances called cyphers, in which each performer takes a few minutes on the mic and then passes it on to the next performer. All performances occur over music supplied by a live DJ, spinning hip hop instrumentals. Local producers also have an opportunity to have their music played at The Cypher and rapped over by the performing artists. There are also a few spots at The Cypher reserved for featured artists to perform their own sets.
To perform in The Cypher, just show up and sign up with F.E.L.N.
PRODUCERS who want their instrumentals played, email beats to: firstname.lastname@example.org or bring a USB with beats on them.
Bring it to the Cypher is brought to you by:
Hip Hop Headz (H3)
The Canadian Indie Movement (CIM)
