Tonight, I went to see “New York Legends of Hip-Hop” at the Victory Theater in Times Square. Looooooong-time friends Marjory and Kim Holmes (pictured) were featured dancers, along with Rock Steady Crew and other representatives of Hip Hop culture, essentially from the beginning of it all. 😀

The show was great! 😀 Reminded me of ‘back in the day’, going clubbing all night, then hitting ‘Round The Clock or Midnight Express for breakfast before or while the sun was coming up. I’m sure it was even better for people that weren’t aware of or didn’t have access to the culture. Our seats were next to a tourist named Melanie. She was from Sweden or Denmark or The Netherlands, I can’t remember which. We took pictures on her camera, which wasn’t digital, so she’s planning to snail-mail me a copy whenever she develops the film!!! hahaha She enjoyed the show a lot, too.
I made sure I had my kicks, sweats & KR3TS shirt, in case I had to ‘get loose’. 😀 I had seen Kim recently, but hadn’t seen Marj in ages, so it was great to watch them perform and hang out with them after the show. This is the last weekend of the show, and all the remaining dates are sold out… as they should be, because “New York Legends of Hip-Hop” is well worth seeing… whether you lived through the evolution of Hip Hop in NYC in the streets and in the clubs or you didn’t, but you’re a fan of the style & energy of the culture.
