UPCOMING: 2010 URB Alt Fest Launch–June 18


The URB Alt Fest kicks off its 5th year with a benefit for Harlem School of the Arts, one of its longtime locations that's in need of the community's financial support.  Let's all come out, start the festival off the right way and support HSA, so it can continue providing arts education to our kids.  Here's the deal:

ALT Launch–Tribute to 2001: A Space Odyssey

The Harlem School of the Arts
645 St. Nicholas Avenue
Harlem NY
$10 Cover for
most, $5 for students and teachers(much respect) and free for
kids under 15.


A, B, C, D trains to 145th St. Station then walk South 2 blocks.

Of the artists performing that night, Boston writes:

1)Jneiro Jarel – Dr. Who Dat?, Shape of Broad Minds, Master of Android
Boombap and LowEnd Feedback. Label Who/Lex Records' avant garde hip hp
artist brings the BASS uptown in his own unique way.

2)Dearling Physique – Minneapolis' electronic/rock outfit creates a
strangely cool experience that toys with pop forms, musical dissonance
and theater that is unlike anything else out there.

3)MiLO – LA art rock band introduces their angular slow burn to
Manhattan. Fronted by chanteuse Lola and musical directed by Mikael
Sandgren(Bill Viola), MiLO is all about a darkly elegant mood.

4)MuthaWit with special guests will raise their songcraft and
improvisational vibration to the fore in celebration of the release of
their new album "Men & Women or the Revenge of Uncle Baldy."
