Art Beats + Lyrics @ the Hippodrome Friday 2/20 $0 free!

Just to be clear, I don’t know much about this event.

Apparently, it’s a celebration of urban art, which usually means graffiti, spoken word, and breakdancing.  However, it seems like the Jack Daniels-sponsored AB+L fest is focused more on painting, sculpture, and photography.

Not that I have a problem with DJs etc., but its good to see something called “urban” and not be the same weak stereotypes; this multimedia exhibition seems to expand hip-hop, rather than confining it.  While there will be the usual collection of MCs, DJs, graffiti artists, and slam poets, this could be an interesting event for lovers of more traditional media as well.

It’s free, which is awesome, and did I see somewhere that there are free drinks, too?  Wow, this really IS breaking from the mainstream!
