Whoa, hold up. The Lyricist Lounge still exist?! That’s craaaaaazy! I thought they folded back in 2007! Talk about going back into time! Check out what they’ve been up to in the past few years down below…
Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation and Lyricist Lounge are pleased to announce their collaboration in co- hosting the 5th annual Restoration Rocks Music festival on Saturday, October 8th, 2011.
Now in its 5th year, Restoration Rocks will showcase emerging and established artists on an outdoor stage in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Along with the following day’s 30th Annual 10K Community Run and Fun Walk, Restoration Rocks is a part of a week-long celebration known as Bed Stuy Alive! which celebrates the rich artistic legacy and cultural diversity of our community. Restoration Rocks is sponsored as part of Restoration’s Center for Arts and Culture which seeks to promote and present the culture of the African and Caribbean Diaspora.
Since its inception in 1991 Lyricist Lounge has maintained its commitment to acknowledging and promoting up and coming raw talent while acknowledging the pioneers in the Hip Hop community. This year’s Lyricist Lounge production of the Restoration Rocks Music Festival will present live performances by Idle Warship, Pharoahe Monch along with Mos Def and the Brooklyn Philharmonic and more to the stage. – via Restoration Plaza
