Experiencing the Bluebird

leave a comment »

Hip hop was the music of choice at Tonic Saturday night during the Bluebird Music and Arts Festival. Indyground record label provided a handful of artists including Stiddy P, Earthworms, and DJ Mahf. Though the crowd wasn’t so big, the atmosphere was intense. Local artists painted to the beat of each of the sets performed. It was really a perfect blend of music, art and entertainment. Too bad you had to be 21 to get in.

Tonic Lounge was just right around the corner, but a totally different experience. A performer called FStZ mixed music on the spot. The DJ pulled me close and told me,”Check this out,” as he switched to a track labeled Trick My Trick. The crowd of festival attendees bobbed their heads to the beat as one guy overhanging the balcony area shouted in excitement. There were a cluster of dancers and smoochers cuddled on the lounges dance floor for most the night.
