Peep My Feet, Bro
A few weeks ago, Reef embarked on a 440-mile adventure that lasted an entire weekend. It began on a Saturday afternoon as he made his way to an event called “Peep My Feet” in Richmond, VA. It was the inaugural opening for the mini convention of sorts, a place where you could buy, trade and even sell footwear along with vending from local, independent or established clothing and accessory brands. He met old friends and made new ones, which is always good. The real reason we were attendance was to support our brother company, BluEmpire Entertainment, the Marketing and Management entity who actually sponsored the event. In all, Reef connected with many different people and brands that hopefully, you will see some collaborations with in the coming months through the brand or with our events. Stay tuned!
Baked Goods, Cuzzo…
After that, it was off to DC to check out a private show in Adams Morgan called Baked Goods. Our good friend, whitneyABSTRAKT was the DJ and sent us the invite and with a few of our peers were on the bill, it was definitely an event worth attending. The setlist included Nicos Gun, JFK , M1platoon, Kali Uchis and Meche Korrect. It was in an apartment that was converted into an art studio so as you could imagine it was a lovely environment to meet and network with people. In my opinion, these type of events are the best to attend. Everyone killed their set and the event as a whole was an pleasurable experience.
Enter the Broccoli City!
The conclusion to the weekend was the Broccoli City Earth Day Festival at the Half-Street Fairgrounds right outside the Nationals ballpark in Southeast DC. This festival proved to be a unique experience for the team, it started off with linking up with a good friend of ours and musician, Young Scolla. He had an interview with Philly’s hip-hop blog HipHopSince1987 for their new project 30 for Thirty. After finishing up with that we ran into Phil Ade who was also on the bill for the festival. We experienced a bit of technical difficulties trying to get into the festival but it eventually all worked out and we and bee-lined to the food trucks which happened to be one of the best things the festival had to offer beside the music. The Broccoli City Festival was all about Earth Day and the awareness of taking care of where we live. The highlight of the day was being able to get up to the stage and take some pretty nice pictures which you will see below.
