Doug E Fresh, Brucie B - Brower Park 7PM FREE
promise myself I’m going to remember these hidden under-promoted
live gems all summer at the more obsucure parks around town. Tonight
Fresh is throwing down for free in Crown Heights' Brower
Park. The human beatbox or the entertainer, known for the…,
not for the…, will be appearing with Brucie B. Though not
as well known for the... as Fresh, B is an important figure in the
evolution of hip hop - the 1980s king of the mixtape. Both together
will be something to behold. The only way you can beat this is if
Fresh announces, “Slick Rick is on next…” And,
just in case you wondered what the odds of that are, Ricky D is
neither on tour, or getting harassed by cops or the INS, he’s
in town getting ready for his gig at BB King Blues Club on Sunday.
And, if this isn't your nostlgia show, feel free to go catch the
sweet sounds of Harold Melvin's Blue Notes sans Harold Melvin (RIP)
at Crotona Park.
