Inaugural Third Thursday Live and Local w/Lushlife & More at Race St. Pier June 20

Inaugural Third Thursday Live and Local w/Lushlife & More at Race St. Pier June 20

It shouldn’t be a surprise to any of our more dedicated readers that we have much love for über-talented emcee/producer Lushlife, a.k.a. Raj Haldar. We were already fans of his mixtapes, and when he entered HotBox Studios and threw down for our first Choice/Cuts session, everyone in the place knew that we had just witness some real genius shit. And the fact that he was so nice and humble about his skills made us love him even more. So while we wait for the rest of the world to catch up to what we and hopefully most of you already know (which we think will happen when he finally releases his collaboration with one of our favorite local electronic outfits), we’ll gladly take advantage of watching Lush perform for free this evening at Race Street Pier as part of the new Philebrity-curated free concert series, Third Thursday Live and Local. (Ugh…this is a pretty unimaginative name, but we get the point.) He’ll also be joined on the bill by Roots affiliate Dice Raw, Jade Alston, D’Vina and DJ Benz. The inaugural event is in conjunction with Black Music Month Week Philadelphia. (“Month Week” - who named this too?) The series will feature a different genre each month as well as established performers alongside up-and-coming acts. Race Street Pier, Race St. & N. Columbus Blvd., 6pm, Free - Q.D. Tran
