Monday July 28th! DRC Records Rap Showcase from BROCKTON! Plus the Prose Cuddle Challenge!
We might play outside again! This show’s not gonna be your regular mild mannered Gerund. Buckle up!
FEATURED PERFORMERS: we’re turning up the volume for artists from (DRC RECORDS), an independent record company devoted to releasing underground music from an array of genres. DRC (short for Drugrat City) was started in early 2008 by Shemrok and Acidrop to release and promote artists with similar interests. With DRC’s roots in both the Boston area and Los Angeles, the styles, fans, and Drugratz are quite diverse and devoted to the artistic progression and expression of one another. DRC is sending us the talented, free wheeling, wild, acrobatic verbal stylings of COOLER THAN SMACK and EGO SYSTEM w/ DIASTRO from Brockton, Massachusetts!
BONUS RUCKUS: PROSE CUDDLE CHALLENGE – this is (I believe) the fourth installment. Whenever the Dirty Gerund invites hip hop into the space, we like to counteract any possibility of over-aggressive, excessive chastising that comes from rap battles and completely flip everything on it’s tender hear. Usually in rap battles, the point is to verbally assault your competitor with rhymes that blaze like laser beams. Prose cuddle? Just what it means. Kill your competitor with kindness and points taken away for obsessive rhyming. Just talk it out, float those compliments in your softest prose style. The person who gets the most cuddly “awe’s”…. wins!
BASTARD KIDS continue their summer music residency! Open mics have been jammed lately, so get down by 8:30 to assure yourself a spot! MAREH K returns with snacks! YOSH & MIKEY have to stretch before shifts cause you gottem jumping around so much behind that bar! And bring them art auction dollars cause rumor has it that 2011 Worcester Arts Councul Fellow ship Winner DEREK RING is bringing the paint!!!! Did I mention this show might get a little wild! There, you’ve been warned!
