On March 24th, UpStar Records hosted the 4th BBQ in the Avenues Open Mic for the school year. This show was co-emceed by Ksmacks and Rymeeze. There were performances by Pretty Boy Roy, Lily, Goof Milz, Sire, Rymeeze, Kia Nichole, Swish Vader, Mas L, and more! Although it was an insanely rainy day, we still drew a large crowd of teenagers, young adults and families. Along with first time performers such as Malachi.
There was delicious food like ribs, chicken, burgers, and hot dogs that left people going back for fourth and fifth servings, grilled by UpStar’s very own Mo and his kitchen crew! There were also games like musical chairs, rap battles, and networking that helped get the crowd involved and keep their energy up. “I loved meeting new people, listening to and supporting other people’s music, and watching performances from all of the artists on the stage,” said Pretty Boy Roy, one of the artists who performed at the event. Cat Ballard, a youth who attended the event said, “The performances were different and very energetic, and the food was delicious!”
There won’t be an event in April, but there definitely will be one last BBQ event May 26th 2017 from 4:00-7:00!
