Back to the Roots: Kool Herc at 5 Pointz

DJ Kool Herc
Free
DJ Kool Herc reputedly created hip-hop on August 10, 1973, at a rec-room party on Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx; he devised a new sound by using two turntables to manipulate soul, funk and disco breaks. That mythical night is why many music historians recognize August as the genre’s anniversary month, and on its 40th birthday, who better to spin records than the normally reclusive Herc himself? As part of its own season-long homage to the genre, SummerStage will cosponsor this must-attend party and painting showcase, where Herc’s soundtrack should inspire some epic designs from a roster of as-yet-unnamed artists.

Great party at 5 pointz today! At least a third of the audience was on the block showing off their moves and it was contagious!
