Discorder, that magazine from CiTR 101.9FM presents a showcase of emerging, Vancouver-based hip hop Friday, November 18 at the Media Club. The lineup is comprised of some of the most talked about and should-be-talked-about hip hop artists in Vancouver, including So Loki, Missy D, R.O.M.I., Something August, Spotty Josif, and Freeman Young. CiTR’s Crimes & Treasons will be DJing and MCing.
“Vancouver is home to rappers making that chemistry found in the forefront of rap. Vancouver artists are working hard to define a new influence and sound that has only been hinted at before.” -C&T's Homeboy Jules
In addition to providing a venue for local hip hop, this event is also a fundraiser to support Discorder’s operations in print, on air, and online. Discorder is a free, monthly magazine produced with the support of volunteer contributors. Partial funds from the showcase will be put towards maintaining operations and printing costs.
“Vancouver hip hop and rap is underrepresented in local publications, Discorder included. Artists seem to get more press outside the Lower Mainland than they do here. We recognize that. This showcase is an opportunity to introduce our readership to some of the underground talent that surrounds us. This is a commitment to give it more representation, while also fundraising to help keep us in print.” -Discorder Editor-In-Chief Brit Bachmann
Tickets are $10 in advance on brownpapertickets.com or $15 at the door. This event is 19+.
