True Laurels Zine Release/ KAHLON Photos

If you were at The Crown in Baltimore this past Saturday to celebrate the birth of KAHLON/True Laurels zine launch, THANK YOU. We packed it out and danced all night. Shoutout to everyone that came to the table to buy a zine and chat it up with me. Big ups to Al Rogers, Abdu Ali, TT The Artist, David Revlon, Gurl Crush and Ponyo for giving a crazy show. If you didn't catch me at The Crown, the zine will be available to purchase online very soon and keep checking the site to see online features of those highlighted in the issue. Thanks to Jonathan Hanson and Abdu for the photos. Also peep the cover and Table of Contents for the zine!

KAHLON: All Night Rager + True Laurels Zine Release Party

If you're in Baltimore next Saturday (November 9th) you should definitely come be a part of KAHLON—an all night dance party and rager with live sets by my friends Abdu Ali, TT The Artist, Ponyo, Gurl Crush and David Revlon. But best of all, KAHLON will also be the release party for the first issue of True Laurels' zine! I've been working on this for a while and I'm excited to finally share a physical component of the blog with people who've been reading from the start and anyone who happens to stumble by. Overall, it's a collection of conversations and insight with people that inspire me a great deal. Catch Cities Aviv, Abdu Ali, DUOX, Modi (DCtoBC/Trillectro), Neil Martinez-Belkin, TT The Artist and 83 Cutlass in the first issue, along with contributions from some talented friends! I've been fiending for a more personal connection with artists that are featured through interviews, profiles or docs in various pubs, so that was the aim for the zine—intimate moments with those who push the culture forward. Without mouthing my way to completely defeating the purpose of an invite for its release, come by The Crown (1910 N. Charles St., 2nd Fl) next Saturday. For those not in Baltimore, some online components of the zine will be posted soon after the release.

RSVP to KAHLON here!
