Historic: Bernie Worrell 75th B-Day DJ Party

We miss him dearly, but he will always be with us. This year, BERNIE WORRELL, the Wizard of WOO, would have turned 75. So, we brought together a couple of his collaborators and fans to spin some funky tunes created, inspired, or influenced by our own dearly-departed, pioneering Funk Legend. DJ Logic, Vernon ReidDJ Sugarfree BK and Starchild & The New Romantic hit the decks in a musical toast to the Man.


A sound that follows no traditional rules.

Historic: Private Screening of Black Panther presented by BRC + Buddhabug Records

Much thanks to everyone who helped us pack the house and raise money for the BRC. It was epic on so many levels, being able to have so many of our friends and family in the theater to celebrate such an important cultural character and watch something that brings to light so many of the issues that we face in this country—as Black folk, as Black men, as Black women, as heirs of legacy, as Diasporans, as artists, as fans, as underestimated geniuses, as exploited and oppressed communities, and as ever-ascending scientists, warriors, and leaders. The room was full of powerhouses, and because of you we raised over $2,000 for the Black Rock Coalition. Extra appreciation to Luqman Brown (Buddhabug Records) for having the idea and sharing it with us, and to Greg Tate, Warrington Hudlin, Regine Sawyer, and Tim Fielder for sharing their wisdom on this very notable moment in time.
