Hey Folks!

Words, Beats and Life is celebrating their 10 year anniversary of putting in WORK!  Founded in 2002, WBL transforms individuals and whole communities by using the core elements of hip-hop culture– emceeing, djing, b-boying and graffiti writing.  To celebrate, WBL is hosting Philanthrobeat: The Soulquarians Edition, tomorrow (1/12) at Liv.  The event will feature The Diamond Cutter DJs (DJs RBI & 2-Tone Jones) & the Soul Controllers (DJs Book, Jahsonic, & Bush Head Ed).  A $10 donations is all you need. Your donation will allow WBL to continue to apply our creative approaches to working with youth in addition to preserving and presenting the arts.  ThatKellieGirl has worked with WBL, so they are a great organization helping out the community. 

To get you ready for the event tomorrow, check out this Midweek Mixx of the Soulquarians from DJ Flash Gordon (I used Upload King).
