Performance Timing: Approximately 90 minutes
This is a FREE event, and tickets are required. Tickets will be distributed two (2) per person in line beginning at approximately 7 p.m., upstairs in the States Gallery. Tickets are General Admission.
Following the discussion, join us for the Just Beats Listening Lounge, a gathering of people, under one roof, with a host, where we can all just listen to beats. By "Beats" we're referring to hip-hop music without lyrics; or original, sonic narratives created by hip-hop music producers. It's the place to be for hip-hop heads, and an authentic, safe space where people can learn more about hip-hop by participating in the culture.
