A Night of film, music and style mixed together in a revolutionary way. Enjoy the INSPIRATION behind several projects created by filmmaker MESSIAH RHODES.
It will begin with a sneak peak of a short film Messiah has been working on, directed by DAVID ANDALMAN called THE NETWORK.
Followed by artist collective THE PEACE POETS who will be showing their Music Videos,One of which Messiah directed. They will also be doing a LIVE PERFORMANCE of songs from their new album "STATE OF THE ART."
Then a screening of a short documentary about HAIR FORCE ONE COLLECTIVE/PHRESH CUTZ and then chill the rest of the night away with hair cuts, music and drinks.
The Peace Poets is a collective of artists that celebrate, examine and advocate for life through music and poetry. Our art can take you on a journey from the Boogie Down to Berlin, from the border to the bodega. Our style emphasizes lyricism, rhythm and authenticity. We hail from the Bronx and have been rocking the mic since 2005.
PHRESH CUTZ is a spot for queers and friends of all kinds to kick it with like-minded individuals over drinks, snacks, and beats while tightening up their look!
MESSIAH RHODES is an editor, director and writer who's short documentary's have been featured on websites such as VICE, New York Daily News, BKLYNR, Current TV, The Blaze, Huffington Post and many others. He is currently a Multimedia Production fellow at Democracy Now!
