The Cool Kids

Damon “Dame” Dash co-founded Roc-a-Fella Records, helped launch the career of Jay-Z and discovered Kanye West. He’s produced or executive-produced about a dozen films, including the well-received 2002 urban flick “Paid in Full” and the 2004 movie “The Woodsman,” starring Kevin Bacon.

New venue Under 100 (located in the basement of the Tribeca building where Damon Dash‘s office is located) is quickly becoming famous, after just two shows. The first, in November, featured sets by Sleigh Bells, Javelin & Knyfe Hyts 81 with help from Mos Def, Curren$y, and others. The second, just two nights ago (12/8), was rumored to include a performance by Blakroc (featuring Mos Def) who were on Letterman that same night. That didn’t happen, but The Cool Kids, The London Souls, Curren$y (again), and some others did play. Mos Def and Damon Dash (again) were just hanging out. The third show is….
