For those of you who attended the inaugural run of the Festival of the New Black Imagination, you recall the great talk by Shaolin Jazz co-creator DJ 2-Tone Jones on the origins and inspiration behind the project that reimagines Wu-Tang Clan over classic jazz. Well, any of you in the DC area are in for a treat this coming Monday, June 25.
That’s when 2-Tone will lead the first ever live musical performance of the project. It’ll be him on turntables and backed by his fellow band members from Sound Of The City, along with guest artists. There will be two (2) shows, one at 8PM, the other at 10. So, pick your shot and get there. Tix are $18 and well worth it.
