Awesome artists both musical and traditional, took to the stage and blew out the Rhythm Lounge on Saturday night. Afrika Bambaataa did his piece and the crowd could not have loved it more. They knew they were with one of the hip hop greats. Nearly every song a breaking circle broke out as people took in the sights and sounds.

Between the local artists and the music there was alot going on, one of the artists painted a piece from an older photo of Afrika Bambaataa throughout the show and finished in the middle of his set.

Alot of local talent was out that night showing off their old school dance moves, breaking, pop and lock, the robot, and someone even broke out the big guns, “The Worm’. The crowd was pumped and most definitely entertained. Great night at the Rhythm Lounge.

Here are some pictures from the event:
