Cancelled - Pisces & Aries Birthday Celebration "The Transition"
Due to Corona Virus COVID-19 pandemic we will be postponing all events. On March 20th, 2020 we throw our 3rd "BeattHeoddZ" event at Collaboraction. The first one we had a gallery showcase from the art of Eddy "Popkorn" Edwards. The second we had a 15 year anniversary of the release of one of the BRICKHEADZ films featuring an all vinyl set from the dj collective the "BIN BANDITS". Now we celebrate and honor all the Pisces and Aries in hip hop because that day, March 20th, 2020 is the cusp (The Transition) from one zodiac sign to the next. Sabrina Saenz and the rest of the team has been working hard to curate and make each event happen with our own funds. This time we try to enjoy this one while reaching out to sponsors and showing them our vision. Come make this one special. Just vibe with great company and enjoy some good hip hop!
