We're now only a couple of days away from the opening night special of the Manchester Marauders exhibition brought to you by Air Adam. If you've no idea what I'm talking about, get familiar by reading on.
"Manchester Marauders is an exhibition of my photography celebrating the Manchester Hip-Hop scene and some of the people from it who have influenced me since I came to the city.
Twenty years after the release of A Tribe Called Quest's "Midnight Marauders," the centrepiece of the show is a re-imagining of that famous album cover - featuring 49 respected Manchester-connected Hip-Hop figures - on display for the very first time.
This opening event will be headlined by a cipher from a number of the "Marauders" themselves - MCs and DJs featured on the piece throwing down live!
Also on the night, DJ sets from;
Mikey D.O.N (Krispy, Night of the Living Dread)
Lee Majors (More Bounce, Superbad)
DJ A-Up (In The Loop)
Omas & DEEJAY13 (At Large) - special Tribe breaks & samples set!
Prints of the main piece will be available to buy and take away on the night - maybe just a small future piece of local history? ;)
FREE ENTRY - please come down and enjoy the work!"
The evening starts at 6pm with a short film from In The Loop's Agent J and Bedos followed by the unveiling of the "Manchester Marauders" centre piece of the exhibition. Then there will be DJ sets and a cipher from the artists mentioned above.
Here's a small teaser trailer to give a little idea of what the exhibition is about.
