About Me

Since the beginning, the focus of Afro-Punk has been to give a voice to thousands of multi-cultural kids fiercely identifying with a lifestyle path-less-traveled.
It all started with 2003's Afro-Punk, the seminal cult classic film spotlighting Black Punks in America.

Afro-Punk became a touchstone of a cultural movement strongly reminiscent of the early days of Hip-Hop.
Alternative urban kids across the nation (and across the globe) who felt like outsiders discovered they were actually the core of a boldly innovative, fast-growing community. The online members have been the driving force behind the exploding Afro-Punk (AP) culture, creating an authentic virtual home in www.afropunk.com.

As the AP movement continued to gain momentum and influence, it went front-and-center at CMJ and SXSW, press coverage ranged from Pitchfork, URB, Vibe, and Nylon to The New York Times, Variety, Entertainment Weekly, MTV and The Los Angeles Times.

In 2005, the very first annual Afro-Punk Festival debuted to wildly enthusiastic crowds at the iconic Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). The festival celebrated and unified the cultural cornerstones of Afro-Punk: music, film, skate, and most importantly, the fiercely independent and influential individuals that are the lifeblood of the AP community.

Now in its 5th year, the Afro-Punk Festival is bigger than ever: 40 bands, skate/BMX parks, visual artists, movies and thousands of audience members.

    How's it going? I have a heads-up if you're interested. Another AP member has posted some videos featuring alternative black women. What's interesting is that most of it is new stuff. The member's name is The Martinez. I told her I was going to tell on her, so if you haven't seen the video, check em out.

   Hey, I made another video.  It's nothing like the others. I have no idea how AP will take this one but I think it's pretty cool_dark as shit_but still cool. I'm calling it_ drum roll please_ Spookycreep's House of Horrors.

   It's too bad it's not October.

    I just picked up the CD from the post office today. I had to get a new ID made first so I had to wait a minute. (Me and ID's don't get along too well.) I had thought about asking if I could have a T shirt instead of the CD but you guys/girls sent the shirt, CD and the movie? Very cool! Thanks a bunch.

    AP rocks!.

   I can't get the message in response to the donations to go through.

   Spookycreep will do for the mention and my real name and address for the CD.

    If this website fails it won't be because I didn't support it.

   Keep up the great work!

    p.s. no website.
