Hip Hop & Comics: Cultures Combine says
With Play (of Kid 'N Play), Portland comics writer David Walker, graffiti artist 179, Mix Master Mike, and other guests TBA.

Hip hop and graphic novels are two vastly different circles that intersect more than you may realize in the giant Venn diagram of the art world. We see the hip hop community of musicians and graffiti artists often drawing on superhero imagery, adopting alter egos, and creating origin stories much like comics. We also see comic creators incorporating hip hop’s rich visual vocabulary of music, dance, fashion, and art into their own work. Patrick A. Reed (Depth Of Field Magazine) will be bringing together graphic artists and musical innovators to discuss interconnectivity between these two creative cultures.

Featuring: the first episode of the Saturday morning Kid 'N Play cartoon and the videos for Madvillainy (Madlib + MF DOOM)'s "All Caps," Biz Markie's "La Da Da," Cut Chemist's "Spat," KRS-ONE's "Break The Chain," Slimkid3 and NuMark's "King," Ghostface's "Daytona 500," and more!

Presented as part of Everything Is Festival: Portland, an irreverent mash-up of events from the worlds of film, music, comedy, and art at the Hollywood Theatre and select venues across the city. http://hollywoodtheatre.org/everything-is-festival-portland/

Everything Is Festival: Portland is sponsored by Ace Hotel Portland, Everything is Terrible, Bunk Bar, Nemo Design, Lagunitas Brewing Co, Jim Beam, Laughing Planet, and Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade.
