We piled in a grip of Bass Ale and head up to the tippy top of Greenpoint, Brooklyn this past Wednesday to celebrate the release of our Aaliyah icon issue. Dri, Blaqstarr and Free Blood, all featured in the issue, performed in the palacious Shangri La. Dri covered Aaliyah while wearing a dress of dollar signs, Blaqstarr jammed out Baltimore club, Free Blood (backed by the Brothers played a no wave ebb-and-flower, guitar shred and yelpy yap. People chilled, we chilled, couches, cat and unfinished construction. Loft party photos of the beautiful people after the jump.
