The Best Thing Since White Bread and Guac: navigating multiple identities through hip hop Created by and for up-and-coming Hip-Hop artists, enthusiasts, and new timers from all five elements, 'The Best Thing Since...Series' is a new hip hop event series fostering community at the open mic, inspiring conversation by thought-provoking artists, and working up a sweat on the dance floor. Be there in person or from anywhere with a data connection. The first installment is "The Best Thing Since White Bread and Guacamole: Navigating Multiple Identities" hosted by Angel City Brewery in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 7PM. The night kicks off with an open mic at 7:15PM (signs up from 7-7:15pm). Starting at 8PM, come see featured performers including Omar Offendum, Dyalekt, Maya Jupiter, and Gangsta Goddess, followed by a killer dance party by DJ Mixcrate. Admission is $14. Using hip hop, well explore the complexities of navigating multiple identities. Beyond the socially-constructed confines of race, what constructs identity? How do we code-switch across the multiple worlds we exist in? Through the five elements of hip hop, well have a multi-dimensional interactive conversation that will foster self-reflection, expression, and community. More than a show, The Best Thing Since...Series aims to reinforce the fifth element of Hip-Hop: knowledge. How do we do this? By utilizing the other four: Graffiti art, Breaking, Emceeing and DJing. The Best Thing Since...Series is collaborative partnership between #CultureFix, Mixed-Race Mixtape and Bondfire Radio.
