What is Return of the Rhythm Rug Art & Music Jam?
Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 8:00pm, at Identity Lounge, begins the NYC Event that blends music and graffiti street art in celebration of the Vernal Equinox, for a real unique experience. DJ’s, Sameer, Shmileen, Tera and Mark VIII will be spinning live, Oktopus will be performing, and artworks from JOSL, CES One, Amierinks (Loco Lou), Meres, J. Mamarella, Mike Die, and Luv 1 will be on show for your viewing and buying pleasure, along with a special meet and greet with the artists.
Rhythm Rug was started by Marley’s Angels and Dennis the Menace (who was a fixture in the NY rave scene back in the early 90′s) to bring people together to enjoy the ecclectic mix of music and street art that is pure New York City. Most, if not all the artists grew up in Brooklyn and have been a part of the graffiti scene since their teens. This year the event returns and plans on being even better than the one before.
Here are some samples of artwork the artists have done in the past to get an idea of what you will see at the event:

CES aka Wish 4, a graffiti artist veteran and one of the The Return of Rythym Rug’s featured artists, talks about how he got into graffiti and his artistic style, with clips of him at work.
If your one of the lucky ones who live in New York, mark your calendars, for it is sure to be an amazing event. You can check out the Return of the Rhythm Rug Facebook Page for more deets. Will you be attending?
