they have this every year.. the first year had some alright shows.. the graff panel was pretty wack..it was jim prighoff, dzine, and recs.

 

last year was kinda cool.. lee was there, but he bascially just showed canvases... but some of the old pics were cool. dzine was there too, but that kid's a jackass legal eagle that just does canvases and uses graff for marketing and chicks... the concerts were too much for me too (20 bucks)

but bobbito and bambaataa dj'd at some bar... heard that was pretty cool.

 

the panels are mostly on stuff like the prison industrial complex, gentrification, and misogyney (sp?).. anyway.. peace
