Bits and Pieces Street Art Exhibit // Saturday May 31st @ Rockstar Showrooms

Street art extravaganza, Bits and Pieces, featuring aerosol imagery from a selection of the original style creators and emerging street artists is presented by Steady Baltimore for your visual pleasure. The style of the letter is a primary tool with which many graffiti artists choose to express themselves. Much like professional calligraphists, Baltimore based artists JaziRock and Booda Wyse have spent decades studying the art of the letter.

Characters and abstract shapes are a constant inclusion in visual art with an urban foundation. Blister & Ways along with other artists in the show have introduced to the public their diverse platforms of creation through their previous exhibitions in the Baltimore, DC and Philadelphia metro areas.

With artists who specialize in adaptation, this malleable show space will be transformed into a three dimensional plethora of visual expression. With an alternative display of canvas, mixed media and other true school artifacts this event will be something Baltimore has never seen before.

Enthusiasts and artists alike will enjoy the exhibit focused on accentuating the individual characteristics of the graffiti art form. Complimenting the artwork will be Monkey Hustle and Steady Baltimore’s own, DJ Stretch (, spinning break beats, club and hip-hop.

The opening reception is from 7pm-2am on Saturday May 31, 2008 at Rockstar Showrooms at 515 Cathedral St. Baltimore, MD 21201 (just south of Centre St. in Mt. Vernon).

Many of the works will be on display for one night only so come enjoy organic art and music fresh out of the oven! Refreshments and light hors d'oeuvres will be served., or email

White T's White Belts - THIS FRIDAY!!!


Lo-Fi Social Club
1825 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21201

Named after their own independent record label and production house, Emynd & Bo Bliz’s Crossfaded Bacon 2008 Mix” is a double disc mix E&B prepared before hitting up SXSW this year for the Flamin Hotz showcase in Austin, Texas. Each mix is a tightly-wound, inte nse, listenable journey that demonstrates each of Emynd & Bo Bliz’s personal tastes, production, and DJing abilities. Emynd’s mix starts off with some lesser known New Orleans Bounce music (including his NOLA Bounce remix of the South Rakkas Crew “Mad Again” which will be released on Mad Decent later this year) and then steadily progresses through some Hyphy, some up-tempo, breakbeat-heavy old-school rap, switching up rather dramatically to explore some House before finally progressing into Baltimore Club and Philly Party music (most of which is self-produced). The mixtape focuses on Emynd’s production abilities and showcases several tracks that will be released this year on Mad Decent, Flamin Hotz, and independently on Crossfaded Bacon Records.

Bo Bliz describes his mix simply enough as “a mix full of songs I like to listen to.” Chock full of Philly rap, Dirty South anthems, Dancehall, and Soul and R&B classics, Bliz’s mix is a very listenable exploration of his far reaching personal tastes. While several of these tracks are club staples that never get old, Bo didn’t forget to include some rare and exclusive tracks you’ve likely never heard before, as well as several songs that he himself produced.

The April 5th NBTB show @ Lo-Fi Social Club turned out to be a wide assortment of visual and performance art. The exhibition displayed the works of more than 15 artists from various wavelengths of the street art scene. Vive La Decadence also came through with an awesome 'theatrical' entourage of rhythmic talent on the stage. DIG Dj's Napspace and Landis Expandis rocked it as expected... check them out at Joe2 for DIG Tuesdays or our next Nothing but the Breaks show on June 6th. We have nothing but appreciation for those who came to check us out.

In the 70's, art and music exclusive to the streets and YMCA's of the Bronx personified an inner city environment that begged for an escape from crime and poverty. While POSE 2 designed the fliers and Afrika Bambaataa controlled the crowd with the ones and two's, people from all over NYC for one night forgot about gangs, poverty and politics.

Should it be a surprise that with those same hip-hop founding conditions existing in Baltimore today, that it too is seeking an outlet? Steady Baltimore and DIG's "Nothing But the Breaks" has become that outlet for an emerging sub-culture of street and graffiti artists and lovers of funk and soul music.

Also known as "DIG" on Tuesday's, DJ duo Landis Expandis and Napspace keep the B-Boys and crowd moving spinning nothing but the funkiest breaks around. Emerging street and graffiti artists BillyMode, Jazirock, El Toro (PHILLY), Adam Neubauer (DC), Ners Boogie and Joe Ride display 70s themed works on canvas, 70s vinyl records and found material.

Politics, poverty and crime aside, Nothing But The Breaks is Baltimore's answer to its vices and ills.


We have joined forces with Vive La Decadence to include a live performance by sister cabaret VERMILLION LIES!! featuring Monsieur Paco along with world champion juggler JEN SLAW, real-life dance revolutionary STRANGE POWERS and Transmodern favorite, ELISA URTIAGA in a mind-blowing, soul-expanding night of drink, dance, and debauchery!
