On August 19th, the QN5 crew (CunninLynguists, Tonedeff, PackFM, Substantial, Mr. SOS, Kokayi and DJ JS-1) are planning on tearing down the roof at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.
2011’s Megashow marks a pivotal turning for us, as we celebrate a decade-plus of musical independence and multiple critically acclaimed releases. To mark this occasion, this year’s theme is Evolution. Eschewing the traditional ‘one by one’ line-up of previous years, the collective will be performing a ‘history of QN5’ in a collaborative format – year by year – that reaches for a peek into the future as well. Along the way, there will be plenty of special guests, special treats, and energy that have made the QN5 Megashow THE Hip Hop showcase of the year.
Clearly, this is not a standard club show…this is a concert experience. So, if you’re putting this off to wait until your favorite QN5 artist makes their way to your neck of the woods, you’re sorely missing out. If you’ve never seen a QN5 show before – THIS IS THE ONE TO SEE. If you’re a blue school veteran – YOU ALREADY BOOKED YOUR FLIGHTS. If your friends aren’t familiar with QN5 – BRING THEM ALONG. If you’ve never been to New York City before – THIS IS A GREAT REASON TO VISIT. And with this year’s theme, there’s no good excuse barring a death in the family to miss this.
I am in complete agreement. Hit the jump for the official flyer and be sure to get your tickets here.
Also, CunninLynguists, Tonedeff and Homeboy Sandman are still on their Oneirology U.S. Tour. Check the rest of the cities/dates here. The big shabang is going down in LA though. Details can be found on the flyer to the right.
