Delicious Vinyl presents: L.A. Old-Skool, 1982-1989
Get ready to "set it off" Strafe-style with some rare footage from the Delicious Vinyl Vaults, giving you a tour of early hip-hop in Los Angeles. You'll catch ultra-rare footage of Ramellzee and graffiti artist Jean Michel Basquiat at the Rhythm Lounge on Melrose--a rare pocket in the advent of L.A. hip hop culture. Also, Soul Brother "Legendary" will present highlights from 1982-1989 (from the Freak Beat to the Golden Era), from his upcoming Suns of James Brown documentary, which features footage of Uncle Jam's Army, Jam City, Ultrawave, and underground dance crews including early moves from members of The Pharcyde. Next, Delicious Vinyl artists (Tone Loc, Young MC, Def Jef, and Body And Soul) appear in a 1988 Electronic Press Kit made for the label by director Tamra Davis. Plus music videos, a live dance performance by the Soul Brothers, DJ set by KDAY Grand Mixer M-Walk, and some other very special guests! To top it all off, Peanut Butter Wolf will be in the house to VJ a set of visuals to cap off the night.
It starts at 8pm, which means I won't be able to lead GoGA this night, but if anyone wants to join me buy a ticket and we can ride out the Silent Movie Theater. I need to hear from you, or else I'm rolling solo to the theater.
Please feel free to meet at 8:30pm at Scoops and if I can I will post a route for the normal GoGA ride.
