So technically, it's the weekend before the last weekend of summer, especially if you're a schoolkid, so you're probably gonna be out there trying to smoke loosies, drink cheap wine and make out with everyone you see. But kids! There are more constructive things to do with your time! Like load all of your new supplies into your backpack ORRRRRR dance your face off in Brooklyn this Saturday at the Teen Passa Passa party ("where teen dancers buss!"). In Issue 53, we profiled Ricky Blaze and his place in the growing scene of indigenous Brooklyn dancehall, and Ricky's performing there along with Ding Dong (FADER 38), Fresh Prince (hear him with Ricky on "How Mi Look"), Jason Fox ("Aunt Jackie"), DJ Webstar ("Chicken Noodle Soup") and a grip of other folks. There's also a troupe appearing called the Acid Dancers who we have to think are going to be mindblowing in every way. We'll be there sometime between 2pm and 9pm perfecting our Gully Creepa on the sidelines (we're not teenagers), so holler if you're in the neighborhood. Full flyer after the jump.
