I was recently able to attend the Naked Truth Runway which was a beautiful event celebrating black artists and the visual artist that sometimes get left behind. All the models were painted with the theme of Black Panther. There was also a fashion show with live music and food.
The first and second Night Of The Freq"s (NOTF) were so much fun we're doing it all again! The third event in what's shown itself to be a series of fun, safe, out of this world EDM shows here in the Twin Cities. The space has been secured, six fantastic artists from across the five-state area have agreed to drop beats for your listening and dancing pleasure.

In mid-December, news came that Pam the Funkstress had passed away. Although many of us knew that Pam had been in the hospital we all thought she'd pull through. I don't think it dawned on any of us that she might not make it, so when we got the news it was a complete shock.
When I saw it on my facebook timeline, I immediately tagged others and news was already spreading quickly. Many people suggested some kind of tribute or fundraiser and this prompted the B-Girl Be family to begin talking about a celebration for Pam in Minneapolis. We had brought Pam in to deejay a number of times for the B-Girl Be Festival and also for other events over the years.
