getting $mashed.

Collaborating with Bronx Underground, last night Afropunk had their monthly Epic Smash concert series and dance party at The Studio @ Webster Hall on 11th street.
The earlier portion of the event started with an all ages dance party rocking powerpop, indie, electro, and techno featuring DJ Tim, DJ Rambunctious, Redlight Dystrict, Blast rocks midtown, and DJ Mike. DJ WAZU held down the late show, starting at 9:30 featuring performances by two noted afropunk groups, The Juggs and Activator.

Old school and newbie rockers filled the studio-- mobbing and boozing of course, including legendary rock star, Moby, along with New York's finest rising afropunk stars and faces. If you missed this month's party, join afropunk and Bronx Underground at the end of every month to get epically $mashed while jamming to good live music at Webster Hall. Check back on this blog every Monday for dates, location, and artists scheduled to perform.
