Wild Style playing @ Film Forum, Spank Rock show tonight

by Black Bubblegum

In celebration of what some see as the ultimate cinematic document of Hip Hop culture, Wild Style, director Charlie Ahearn has released a 35MM print of Wild Style that will play from Nov 14-20 at Film Forum in NYC. Tickets are available here. Here’s what my favorite film critic at the New York Times had to say about the movie:

“Wild Style remains, to borrow a term from the rap lexicon, permanently fresh. In capturing the Hip Hop aesthetic at an early point of ferment and vigor, Ahearn’s film was able to intuit what Hip Hop would become.”
-[ A. O. Scott, New York Times]

To kick off the celebration, Ahearn enlisted the help of original cast members Busy Bee, Grandmaster Caz (Of The Cold Crush Brothers), Grand Wizard Theodore, and Double Trouble (of Funky 4+1) as well as the headliner Spank Rock to play Danbro Studios in Bushwick, tonight, Thursday November 13, 2008. The Todd P show also doubles as a benefit for Showpaper. Get on out and support the old sch-, -er, ORIGINAL school of hip hop! Charlie Ahearn was recently interviewed on WNYC (check that out here) and the New York Times ran a piece on Wild Style‘s anniversary. Todd P party details, and the Wild Style trailer, are below…
