Today the Smithsonian Folklife Festival kicks off on the Mall, and Head-Roc, the Mayor of DC Hip-Hop, starts the party off right. Head-Roc is everywhere in this town, fronting his band GODISHEUS, writing for Huffington Post DC, and broadcasting on Capital Resistance Radio 97.5 FM. You’ve got two chances to see his “Black Rock Super Hero Music” set today, on the MONSTER Panorama Room sound stage at 1:30 PM, then again at the Good Hope and Naylor corner at 3:30 PM. Always championing causes close to his heart, he recently created a theme song and music video for the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 400 chapter. I hope you get to enjoy the first day of the Festival instead of being locked in an office all day like me!
