TVD's 4th of July Party/Vinyl Giveaway: The Big Boom with Fort Knox Five, Sunday, 7/4 at U Street Music Hall!

It’s the FOURTH OF JULY !!

Time to really give our motherland a big HIGH FIVE! and show our respects by consuming an obscene amount of grilled meat and booze while sweating our *balls* off and haphazardly shooting flames into all directions!! God Bless America!

This Sunday night after your daytime festivities, come celebrate with the funkiest line-up of DC’s favorite homegrown reggae/funk/DJ artists at DC’s newest [and now favorite] music venue, U Street Music Hall!

Fort Knox Five, See-I, and Nappy Riddem will all be performing with live bands along with DJ sets by Rex Riddem, JonH and Raskal and some very, very rad visual projections by John Bowen of Video Killers and Empresarios.

The new single, "Shift" by Fort Knox Five featuring the legendary Afrika Bambaataa saw its inception over Inauguration Weekend, carrying with it a revolutionary and progressive vibe, is the perfect anthem for the Fourth. "Shift" has also recently seen a cascade of stellar remixes including a dubstep mix by Sub Swara, a electro-house/breaks mix by Malente as well as others.

The show starts at 9pm so that means you still have time to have the whole day to waste before ending the holiday on a funky [and always happy] note.

Capital Hemp, who have just opened a NEW LOCATION in Chinatown/Gallery Place, are just one of the many local artists sponsoring The Big Boom. Expect a Capital Hemp bio-fuel exhibit outside as well as info about Americans For Safe Access.

Come to the show! Save some money (tix are $10 each) and cop some tickets below! The Vinyl District has TWO PAIRS to giveaway! Not only that but we are also giving out TWO double gate fold vinyl of Fort Knox Five's "Radio Free DC" sent directly to your door!

I love America because we are a melting pot. You can eat authentic vietnamese for lunch and authentic carribean food for dinner. We live, study and work with people from all religions and cultures. In fact most of us are a mixture of nationalities. And even in our founding document its stated: "we hold this truth...All humans are created equal!"

I love America because she doesn't tell me what to do. This includes eating breakfast at dinner time, wearing socks that don't match and not passing judgment when I pee in the ocean. Yep, she's a pretty cool dude.

I love America because it stood up to England. Looking for tix,

I love America for its subtle understated hubris and urbane cultivated graciousness.

And, of course, 'because it stood up to England'. Are we talking about the World Cup or a little more distant history?

In any event, have a frightfully splendid July the 4th.

Love Dickie
