Fort Knox Recordings & Capitol Hemp Present: THE BIG BOOM w/ Free Ticket Giveaway

FORT KNOX RECORDINGS AND CAPITOL HEMP HOST MASSIVE DC CELEBRATION “THE BIG BOOM” AT U STREET MUSIC HALL

Local Washington, DC Businesses Join Forces to Present a Massive  4th of July Concert Event

Fort Knox Recordings and Capitol Hemp have joined forces with DC’s most exciting new venue, the U Street Music Hall to put together a solid concert for the 4th of July Independence Day celebrations.  Fort Knox Five, See-I and Nappy Riddem will all perform with live bands, with DJ support from Rex Riddem, JonH and Raskal and live visual projections by John Bowen of Video Killers and Empresarios.

Capitol Hemp recently expanded and opened their second location in Chinatown.  As DC’s only hemp stores, they have received widespread support from the community and are actively giving back to the community.  The Capitol Hemp “Custom Waste Veggie Oil Delivery Truck” will be parked out front as an interactive bio-fuel exhibit.  Adam Eidinger and Americans for Safe Access will also be on hand to help celebrate the 4th of July.

Fort Knox Five are on fire right now with a series of remix singles, releases and a brand new music video featuring Afrika Bambaataa.  Their music was recently licensed to Oscar Winning Best Documentary The Cove, the trailer for Touchstone/Disney’s You Again and Greg Stump’s forthcoming ski movie Legend of Aahh’s.  You can catch both Fort Knox Five and See-I on tour all summer long at some of the best venues and festivals nationwide.  Nappy Riddem and See-I are both releasing singles, remixes and finishing up full-length albums.  Fort Knox Recordings has been very busy and as always it is 100% Washington, DC artist owned and operated.

U Street Music Hall is the perfect venue for this exciting event.  Still brand new and boasting the best sound system in town, the audience will truly get The Big Boom experience!  The venue is also owned and operated by some of DC’s finest DJs and musicians – people who know and respect the local music industry.

As all businesses involved are 100% independently owned and operated, this is a non-corporate event of the local business community.  We rely upon your support in spreading the word.  All artists and musicians involved are eager to speak with the press and offer free giveaways and exclusive news for your readers.

Featuring live performances by:

FORT KNOX FIVE
SEE-I
NAPPY RIDDEM

I haven’t been to any parties this year, at all. Six damn months of no partying, Insane. I have been taking care of my children and working on my live funk, jazz, dub project as well. Now I have a minute and would love to see this show, and funk it up in DC. I need some fresh aural love….Please???

A coupla reasons you should consider me: I’ve been getting into the FK5 a lot recently and helped stoke them online and to west coast friends considering the Joshua Tree Music Festival or their SF gig. I’ve missed most of the local dates recently–incl. the block party . I’ve heard great things about SEE-I and Nappy Riddem and would love to see them for the first time at U Hall! I already love Capitol Hemp–legalizing industrial hemp and furthering the biofuel mov’t is (part of) the answer! If you choose me, I promise to bring another 4 with me. Namaste, Marc
