Last night's vitaminwater uncapped LIVE in DC was the opening party for a new space called, fittingly, vitaminwater uncapped LIVE. It kicked off 30 days of music, sport and fashion events in the nation's capital. Hundreds of people came out to show love for our favorite DMV artists. They enjoyed free Heineken, filled all three floors of the venue and made fine use of the ping pong table Joola graciously donated. DJ Alizay spun for the first hour, kicking off one of the tour's most stacked nights before Uptown XO opened up the mic-ripping. Fat Trel, our new favorite Twitterer, was more than happy to be there, and that makes us happy too. Actually, shout out Wale's twitter too—DC's native son and special guest headliner brought along a whole team with him, sharing shine with Northern Virginia's hottest MC Black Cobain, Tre from DC's great UCB band, Tiara Thomas (who ripped on guitar) and and fellow Maybach Music signee Magazeen. Rye Rye made the trip from Baltimore with her amazing crew of dancers, turning in another great uncapped performance that had the whole floor shaking and the whole crowd bouncing along. It's always extra crazy to fill your own venue, to have a place for artists to really let loose, and we were glad y'all packed it long into the morning.
