[NEWS] QN5 MEGASHOW 2011: EVOLUTION (8.19.11) @ Highline Ballroom NYC
It’s Cinco De Mayo, so that could only mean 2 things: 1) You probably won’t remember your own name by 11 PM and 2) It’s QN5’s Birthday!
That’s right, 11 years of independent Hip Hop brought to you by the baby blue armada. You’ve gotten us this far, and we have so much more to show you that we can’t help but be excited for what the future has in store. Speaking of the future, they say you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been. So, this year’s upcoming QN5 Megashow will work towards that end by providing y’all with a bit of a refresher course to go along with the new treats.
QN5 MEGASHOW 2011: EVOLUTION
2011’s Megashow marks a pivotal turning for us, as we celebrate a decade-plus of musical independence and multiple critically acclaimed releases. To mark this occasion, this year’s theme is Evolution. Eschewing the traditional ‘one by one’ line-up of previous years, the collective will be performing a ‘history of QN5’ in a collaborative format – year by year – that reaches for a peek into the future as well. Along the way, there will be plenty of special guests, special treats, and energy that have made the QN5 Megashow THE Hip Hop showcase of the year.
Clearly, this is not a standard club show…this is a concert experience. So, if you’re putting this off to wait until your favorite QN5 artist makes their way to your neck of the woods, you’re sorely missing out. If you’ve never seen a QN5 show before – THIS IS THE ONE TO SEE. If you’re a blue school veteran – YOU ALREADY BOOKED YOUR FLIGHTS. If your friends aren’t familiar with QN5 – BRING THEM ALONG. If you’ve never been to New York City before – THIS IS A GREAT REASON TO VISIT. And with this year’s theme, there’s no good excuse barring a death in the family to miss this.
ABOUT THE QN5 MEGASHOW
The QN5 MEGASHOW is an annual destination event thrown exclusively by NYC’s independent hip hop label, QN5 Music, for their fans. It is the only time the entire label’s roster (Tonedeff, CunninLynguists, PackFM, Substantial, Mr. SOS & Kokayi) converges on the same stage on the same night.
QN5 fans (ie. Blue Schoolers) from all over the world make their pilgrimage to this event to celebrate all things baby blue and see one of the most energetic and entertaining shows in Hip Hop. This event has torn down legendary spots such as CBGBs, BB Kings, The Roxy (LA) and now makes its second visit to NYC’s Highline Ballroom. As usual, there will be no photography or videotaping of this event permitted, so you’ll just have to be there to see for yourself.
