Food 4 Thought

When first creating Da Bassment Blog our intentions was to create a platform for underground artist to showcase their talent, while giving an outlet to unsigned artist who spoke from the heart with a raw un-filtered emotion that hasn’t been tampered or manipulated from record executives and corporations. In our 8 month endeavor we have found much success connecting new artist with fans, most being heard for the first time. This way was working well but we wanted to push the envelope and take it a step further. We wanted to transform Da Bassment Blog from digital to tangible, so we reached out to local artist Aziza, Izzy, Siri, Jumanji and Perez to be apart of Da Bassment Blog talent show case and mixer. ‘Food 4 Thought’ A captivating event for those who embody creativity, expression and revolution of ideas that captivate the senses and stimulates the mind. Using their art to speak on current events and social injustices taking place. Feeding the mind body and soul with poetry/ singing and spoken word as well as food and spirits provided by Elephant Walk (170 W McMillan St, Cincinnati, OH 45219) a Black owned business located in the heart of the university of Cincinnati campus. We encourage any body who enjoys good vibes, food and people to join us Saturday October 22,2016 from 6pm-10pm as we elevate the art of kick it and as always….
