Alabama and Vancouver come together at Fortune Sound Club July 15 [News]
Vancouver, B.C. – July 15 at Fortune Sound Club, Alabama native Yelawolf hits the stage alongside some of Vancouver’s best and brightest. Coast2Coast Entertainment will be presenting the young, talented artist as part of their mandate to “bring the upcoming artists out and show support for the underground community.”
Clay Aelbers – aka beatboxer Cashius Clay – of Coast2Coast Entertainment is a regular fixture at Fortune Sound Club and wants to “bring up the freshmen and try to change the scene in Vancouver.” Aelbers is also heavily involved in a rather lofty venture with Westside Gallery, an exclusive art gallery and lounge that caters to the industry elite.
The night will be hosted by local MC and beatboxer Emotionz, and will also include a showcase from Surrey-based clothing company Ephin Apparel: co-owner Ryan Wiese promises “an interactive, live fashion show with performances from a multi-talented group of performers.” Ephin’s roster includes Snak the Ripper, Caspian, DJs D-Rec and Rhek, as well as B-Boys Savage Rock and B-minus from the Now or Never crew. Wiese also mentions that this showcase is a precursor to next year’s Canada-wide tour which will also include skateboarders and graf writers, and will occur at the many retail outlets which sell Ephin Clothing.
