AfroPunk 2012… Lost Photos

I had an AWESOME time at AfroPunk 2012!
Unfortunately, my battery died and revived semi photo-less.
I usually make a video when I  DO show up but didn’t salvage enough clips to make a solid one. 
I figured some of you may want to relive the awesome memory of the incomparable

AfroPunk 2012: “I stand behind it. I GUARANTEE it”.

       Who can resist the awesomeness of the 
AfroPunk Festival?
Every year since 2008, I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the rawness and excitement of great black artists. Whether it be great musicians, skaters, or painters, each year AfroPunk has something new to offer. At Commodore Park, wonderful people put together this “great engagement” where you’ll get to whitness BMX Rider contests, Live performances from both renowned, Independent, and basement bands, Graf artists and designers; all uniting for two whole days.
