The Library of Vinyl Experience (LOVE) and the Somerville Arts Council are throwing a HIP HOP HISTORY JAM outdoor in the middle of Union square! This community hip-hop event will revolve around a series of thematic DJ sets re-presenting 6 eras of hip hop history in classic Beat Research style (e.g., mixed and mashed with a side of edutainment).

Some of Boston's best DJs/Mixologists will be taking the lead on each set:

Wayne&Wax - Jamaican Roots
DJ Yamin (Beats not Bombs) - Funk & Soul
DJ Def Rock (of Monstamind/Megabug fame!) - Birth of Hip Hop
DJ Drama (Elemental Compounds) - Old/Middleschool
DJ Flack (Mashit/Beat Research) - Golden Age
DJ C (Mashit/Beat Research) -Back to the Future

If that was not enough, LYRICAL and BRICK CASEY are hosting this event which will feature the ever amazing LOSST UNNOWN!

CRITICAL BREAKDOWN and the MASSIVE RECORDS family will be there too!!

Really, you want to come to this one (but if you miss it, try to get to the other crazy events below!). In the meantime these links ought to get you in the mood!
