SummerStage to Screen WILD STYLE with Live Hip Hop Show, 8/26
On Monday August 26, 2013, SummerStage will present the Wild Style 30th Anniversary Celebration with a full-length screening of the seminal hip hop film Wild Style, featuring live performances and appearances by: FAB 5 FREDDY, BUSY BEE, GRAND WIZARD THEODORE, COLD CRUSH BROTHERS, THE ROCK STEADY CREW, LEE / LADY PINK / PATTI ASTOR / LISA LEE / RODNEY C and more.
Join SummerStage for a special 30th anniversary screening of the classic Hip-Hop film, Wild Style at the East River. For those craving the true roots of Rap, Wild Style captured the hard core South Bronx scene at its births. This 1983 film stars a pantheon of Hip-Hop pioneers, including: DJ Grand Master Flash, Grand Master Caz and The Cold Crush Brothers, and The Rock Steady Crew. "Wild Style" also showcases the works of legendary subway artists, Lee Quinones and Sandra Pink Fabara and follows the outlaw artists through the train yards to the clubs where Hip-Hop music and B-Boy culture were born. Phelim O'Neill of The Guardian says, "Nothing else comes close to capturing the atmosphere of the early days of Hip-Hop and spray can art." Movie Website: www.wildstylethemovie.com.
