Celebrate Indepence Day by supporting independent music and the movement of rebellion. Kill your Black Entertainment television.
For a solid week the planet of Brooklyn will be home to some of the most progressive, trendsetting musicians you can hear right now. Don’t get it twisted, the Afro Punk movement is Hip-Hop. More Hip-Hop than your T.V. sets or your radio since all that shit is programmed by the Tall Israelis anyhoo.
The Afro Punk Film and Music Festival is your chance to catch my favorite band GAME Rebellion as well as some other tight groups do their thing with a swing and swagger that only comes from cooking a gumbo filled with Public Enemy, The Clash, Bad Brains, Big Daddy Kane and FishBone to name a few, but it ain’t just music either party people. Afro Punk is a lifestyle bitches! Take a look at all the events that are popping off this week.
