Barack Obama Benefit with Lil Wil

A few weeks ago, Prince William approached us about doing a benefit for the Obama campaign. We were down for sure, but we wondered-- who would participate in such a show, and where the hell could we do it? At least one venue told us that they didn't want to get involved with anything "political," and a lot of other venues were simply booked on the one night that we could do it. We almost had to cancel the thing all together because it's set to take place this coming Thursday, May 8th, and we didn't think we would have enough time to promote it and secure a venue. Luckily, we were able to get in touch with the guys at Neva Dug Disco to secure their DIY venue spot at 3612 Commerce St. (just down the street from Doublewide), which provides a great atmosphere for a show like this. Anyway, take a look at the line up:

Lil Wil
Hawatha
Johnny Moog


with Prince William, Sober, and DJ Fishr Pryce spinning before, between and after the sets.

$6 cover donated to Barack Obama's Presidential Campaign; BYOB ( By the way, this benefit has absolutely no official connection with Barack Obama's presidential campaign)

In case you didn't know, Lil Wil is the Dallas based rapper who has been making national headway with his single "My Dougie," and we're very excited that he and everyone else involved has elected to donate their time for this show. We'll have more on this for you throughout the week. Check "My Dougie"

Obama prays to white jesus every night, thus he is black jesus. Our savior and hope for the future.

I would go if the music was any good.
I'll just donate an additional $6 directly to the campaign instead.
