WAVES IX… A SPECIAL COLLABORATION WITH House of PainT 2017
TWO FLOORS, TWO DJ's, LIVE ART, BLAIR'S CHAMPAGNE BDAY & THIS MONTH'S MEDIUM
For those who aren't familiar, House of PainT is an annual festival (14 years strong) commited to elevating hip-hop in Ottawa and the arts and cultural aspects that surround this beloved genre.
Spray cans seemed like the perfect medium for WAVES IX since the festival grounds (underneath Dunbar Bridge in Brewer Park) serve as a legal grafiti wall throughout the year and are painted by Ottawa's graf community during the festival (#youreallygottaseethis)
AS ALWAYS… all art / artists are welcome.
if you need help locating an empty spray can to use as your canvas or have any questions about participating please feel free to contat Robbie, Stu, Kevin, Ezra, Jacob or Blair (for those in Montreal) or contact the Overkill facebook page.
HOP headliners JAYEMKAYEM & Smif N Wessun's DJ Logic will be alternating between upstairs at Mercury Lounge and at WAVES downstairs at Overkill throughout the night.
***think golden era hip hop meets the migos era turn-up we currently live in
