The good folks at Manifesto have been putting it down for the Hip Hop community for a long time. They work in, and with the community to support and promote the various types of art. I’ve have been to various events and workshops that they have put on, including last years Manifesto 10 concert at Echo beach in Toronto, where Kaytranada and Anderson .Paak rocked the crowd.
Tonight they are kicking off their annual weekend of events with the “Manifesto 11 House Party”. They’re turning The Drake Hotel venue in Toronto into a house party vibe. There will lots of amazing artists performing including Practice, Birthday Boy, Killa Kells, Sammy Raval, Revy B, Abscvnd, and Laith.
The different areas of the venue will be transformed and each will be a unique experience. Here’s how it’s going down from the Manifesto crew:
You know the basement’s always where you find the band gear. Down here we’re opening the floor to Practice, the legendary night of curated musical improvisation, in a live setting. While connecting, highlighting and bolstering Toronto talent, Practice also gives music fans a chance to witness real-time musical creation. And if you’re up to it, jump on stage, grab an instrument and lay it down smooooove.
♦THE LIVING ROOM♦
We’re turning the dining room table into a DJ booth and taking out the couches so there’s room to slow dance. And by slow dance we mean fast dance. And by fast dance we mean…well you know what we mean.
Featuring the bad kids from the neighbourhood:
→KillaxKels (Gxxrls Creative Agency)
→Sammy Rawal (YES YES Y’ALL)
→Dj Revy B (SUPAFRIK)
When you need a quick breath of fresh air, head upstairs to the patio to catch a quick chat with the crew. We’ll keep the mood nice and easy with some future beats, throwback classics and other laid back sounds.
→Birthday Boy (Collectif Nude)
→Laith (PlusMood Radio)
→Abscvnd (Omit Limitation)
This is a 19+ event and tickets are available at the door. Hip Hop Authority will be in the house so come check us out as well when you’re there!
