BROOKLYN DIARIES: live painting at AFROPUNK AUG 27th-28th

SUPER psyched to be painting at AFROPUNK Art Wall (Saturday-Sunday, AUG27-28) this year again!!!  Shout to Matthew, Rasu (CDBK) & the AP team for getting me on board.  [photo by Rasu J.]

Dayum! Cee Lo Green, Janelle Monae, Fishbone, Santigold, Toro Y Moi, Res, Joi, Toshi Reagon, Ninjasonik, Cerebral Ballzy, Straight Line Stitch, Gordon Voidwell, Reggie Watts, Joe Jordans Experiment, Rocky Business, and more to be announced. 
The line-up of this year's Afro-punk Festival is killer! August 27-28 in Brooklyn, New York (Commodore Barry Park). You know you don't want to miss this one, kiddos. And it's FREE too! 

But wait, there's more in store:

- the Nike Battle For the Streets Skate and BMX Competition, featuring some of the nation's top amateur skaters and BMX riders such as Nigel Sylvester and P-Rod.

- the Afro-Punk Bites&Beats Food Truck Festival (over 20 dope food trucks from the NYC area).

- a custom bike show (dozens of bikes customized by Black riders), which will serve as the backdrop for the Harley Davidson/Denim and Chrome 2012 Calendar photo shoot (photographer Darius Vick will capture bad-ass tattooed beauties)

- The Skate Artwall (an artist will paint over 300 skateboards as part of one large mural) Phew! Sorry for making you fall off your chairs, but it's for a good cause. See ya there!  - Lou C-D of afropunk
