September 27 – Lexiglass (Cassette Launch) // Justin Hicks // Veronica Liu (Pre-Partum Release Party)

Lexiglass, uptown’s own live hip hop band, featuring Alexis Marcelo on keys and Will Glass on drums, celebrates its first official release: a cassette (and free download) of covers from the last A Tribe Called Quest album, The Love Movement. Recorded live to tape with no overdubs, it highlights the rawness and spontaneity that uptown audiences already know from their shows backing up The Machine, Tellie Floydd, Circa 95 and many more. Live instrumental set, with surprises. // The last time the amazing and highly original vocalist, composer and performer Justin Hicks played Word Up, he electrified a Sundayafternoon crowd with soulful tributes to Walter Dean Myers and Odetta. // Veronica Liu, founder of Word Up, joins in the celebration by presenting a selection of long-simmering writing projects that she has resolved to complete before having a baby very soon after this event.
