- the Afro-Punk Bites&Beats Food Truck Festival (over 20 dope food trucks from the NYC area).

- a custom bike show (dozens of bikes customized by Black riders), which will serve as the backdrop for the Harley Davidson/Denim and Chrome 2012 Calendar photo shoot (photographer Darius Vick will capture bad-ass tattooed beauties)

- The Skate Artwall (an artist will paint over 300 skateboards as part of one large mural)
Phew! Sorry for making you fall off your chairs, but it's for a good cause. See ya there!

I must add, props to Matthew and the promoters who OBVIOUSLY work seriously hard on making a killer line-up.  This is where I say corporate sponsorship is useful (yeah I said, it, quote me) because it would be near impossible getting a two day line-up of this caliber & quality for FREE any other way. 

Milk that hungry big business dollar trying to get your loot; support the bands by showing up and BUYING their products (yeah actually cds, remember those?) and merchandise (t-shirts and posters).  I'll be there.

DOPE!  But where is CX KidtroniK?! He's the man and rocked the fest before.  Unless he has commitments outside the country, it would crazy off the chain to see him too. You have to check it and his album KRAK ATTAK if you haven't, a whole other level.
