I hope 2 see some Afropunks at this:

#b00tyCall is back with a vengeance. Reset your internet, and map the Wonderbox (a warehouse/art space) at 79 Hanover Place NW*. This alley warehouse space is primped and primed for lots of "WHERE U @" #b00tyCall texts and bottles in a paper bag (BYOB style, yo)! Spend... your night with Anthology of Booty and all your closest friends as we pump out scandalous Global Booty Beats: dancehall, pirated kenyan pop, no wave, miami booty bass, balkan beats, cumbia bass, kuduro, reggaeton, funky disco and pretty much anything that has the word "BOOTY" in it.

Anthology of Booty Presents:
a clandestine warehouse party

$5 presale through Thurs 3/9 (
$7 before midnight
$10 after
BYOB + $1 special jello shots made by each member of Anthology of Booty
at The Wonderbox
79 Hanover Place NW (The warehouse in the alley between N & O Streets and 1st & North Cap NW. You know you're on the right track when you see a mural of Chuck Close & Marvin Gaye)

with Anthology of Booty djs:
Natty Boom
Special MC ZOMBIE!
Live performance by Ashley Shay and tha Booty Crew!

RSVP on facebook:!/events/383398891688240/

^^The Anthology of Booty is a DJ crew in Washington DC seeking to create unique and welcoming social spaces. Our crew is a mix of people from many different backgrounds, and we are painfully aware of how social spaces like dances, clubs, and bars have been used to keep people apart and maintain social dynamics such as racism, misogyny, and homophobia. We are committed to resisting these negative forces by creating spaces for dancing, community-building, kickin' it, and art with an emphasis on inclusion and respect. ^^

++This is a benefit towards the Wonderbox space itself, which hopefully can support rad community oriented projects like ours in the coming year.++

** In order for us to work with the neighborhood and ensure the longevity of the party, please be aware that a police car will be present in the alley for most of the night. On one hand this is not much different than any of our neighborhoods, but we mention it because we have strong feelings about the cops like you may.**

Thanx to everyone that came out to Swenka on Sunday night!  Look forward to more Afropunk connection.  By the way, what's next?! Music share meet-up perhaps?!

P.S. Red Line is amazing! How do we get them to play more?

Def wanting to go to this show

Comment by Mothershiester on January 31, 2012 at 1:15pm

hey folx,

A new year equals more opportunities to connect outside of the virtual realm.  Anyone interested in some afro punk get togethers.  Let's scheme!

In the meantime, I'm djaying this MAD event.  Check it out!

On Sunday February 19, 2012 (President's Day Weekend) we a go do this propa!

SWENKA! is a new celebrating the past, gets down with the present, and visualizes the future of African dance riddims, beats, and culture.

All across the diaspora, the fires of innovation and creativity in music continue to burn. Today we just fuel the flames with laptops, flash drives, smartphones, Soundcloud, Youtube, and international flights between Europe, the US, Lagos, Accra, Freetown, JoBerg, Capetown, Luanda and more destinations.

Our DJs for the inaugural session are:

Underdog (Lunchbox Theory, BBC Radio)
Mothershiester (Anthology of Booty, Africa Is Not A Country)
Brian Senyo (, The KirkOut)

We’ll be cranking the sounds Afrobeat, Soukous, Hip Life, Naija, Afro house, Kwaito, Coupe Decale, Kuduro, Afropop, UK Funky, it’s free to get in and it's going on down at The Wonderland Ballroom, 1101 Kenyon Street NW, Washington DC.
Come out, wear your wax print, beads, wave your flags, and get #Swenka!

The name Swenka! is based on and takes inspiration from the Swenkas from South Africa, which are men who dress up and compete to showcase their style, class, self respect for themselves and their community. There is an amazing documentary on the Swenkas that you should absolutely see. Read more about them here.
