    A HipHop KickBack to Enlighten the Soul will do just that. The speaker, Dr. Dana, will discuss history in a deeper, sophisticated, and more passionate way than the average university professor might. The music performed will leave one's mind wondering down the rabbit hole. The atmosphere will hold peoples of all sorts, so be prepared to network and meet somebody who could potentially be a business partner in your future. This is a primary function of what we do at UNDRGRND RLRD: scheme on how to take advantage of the present and how to better the future. The $10 cover will be charged at the door, and the event is strictly 21+. Don't forget to BYOB! The doors at the Ava Lounge will open at 7p, and there will be appetizers served until 8:30p. Then, around 8:30p, Dr. Dana of Cultural Oasis in East Liberty will speak on the metaphysics of history - this is definitely a lecture you DO NOT want to miss. By 9:30p the performances will begin, and by 11:30p the celebration will begin, lead by DJ I-Money who plans to keep the vibe going until 2a.

    If you are invested or interested in Pittsburgh's hip hop scene in any way, this is a can't-miss event for you. This is the 3rd event that the Pittsburgh Hip Hop Collective ("Pittsburgh Renaissance") is organizing. We are bringing together nine of the main players in the local scene (veteran artists, newcomers, managers, engineers) to have a discussion about Pittsburgh's local hip hop scene, its strengths and weaknesses and the experiences artists have had over the years. Hosted by Palermo Stone & R.A.R.E. Nation, the hope is to bring together in one room, for the first time in recent history, the main artists of Pittsburgh's hip hop culture to talk together about Pittsburgh hip hop and ways to make the culture here stronger for all involved. Even if you are not one of the panelists, we encourage you to attend and get involved in the conversation in order to unite Pittsburgh and strengthen its hip hop culture. Panelists: Beedie, B. White, Chicken, Crystal Seth, Hitt of MCM, JKJ, Liana Maneese, Norman Dean, Zekiel "Zeke" Nicholson. With special performances by CHRIS Mitchell & Shad Ali. Admission is only $5 (to cover cost of facility rental).
