Friday To-Do: Rock Street

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 9:58 AM


9 p.m., Vino's. $5.

Emboldened by the success of the Cool Shoes parties, local promoter TJ Deeter is branching out. He's launching two regular branded parties early this year, Rock Street and Reverb. After some 450 tried to squeeze into Downtown Music last December, Cool Shoes goes to 18 and above to enter in January. Reverb, which debuts in February, is essentially the Cool Shoes concept, but open to all ages. Friday's inaugural Rock Street event takes that dance music concept and applies it to a hip-hop party. Local rappers and promoters 4x4 Crew host. Standout local MC Rockst*r performs a couple of new songs. Ditto for Bonafide Music, an upcoming duo of hip-hop school alums. But the DJs get top billin': DJ Fatality, DJ Trukula and Mister Deetrix (the latest of Deeter's ever-evolving DJ names) spin all flavors of hip-hop — old-school, blog fresh, bounce, snap, hyphy, hip-hop house, East Coast and, surely, a hearty dose of Dirty South. There'll be graffiti artists, hip-hop dancing and open-mic slots, too.
