Garden Party

Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn (1698 Bergen Street) is hosting a 'Garden Party every Saturday in July. The free shows will open at 4pm, except the first one on July 2nd which opens at 2pm. Pharoahe Monch (who plays a few shows in July) and Baolji play that Emancipation Day Celebration.

Theophilus London (whose last NYC show was at Music Hall of Williamsburg during the Northside Festival) plays the Garden Party on July 23 with Phony PPL (who also opened for Theophilus at Brooklyn Museum).

I hope Theo gets your memo and really gives it some thought, maybe on the way home from his beachfront gig in Cannes.

Pathetic.

Phony PPL are the best band in New York.

Not kidding.

Theophilus London is such a cornballito.
Kind of a warmed over "Mos Def / Fab 5 Freddy" but this guy can't spit to save his life.

However, he may be on to something with this stick. Talent is becoming very overrated. You just need to convince the right people that you have arrived!
