This past Saturday, BaltiGurls, a Baltimore-based art collective of black and brown women, threw the first of their Edge Control party at EMP Collective in downtown Baltimore. The packed-out show, which was decorated with the collective's merch, projections of black hair commercials and wavy hair graphics had sets by Joy Postell & The Breedz, Trillnatured, Sneaks and DC's Kleonaptra. Below are photos from Edge Control by Branon Price and a few snagged from party-goers' Instagram posts.
