Hip Hop Karaoke MTL returns this Saturday, July 11, inside Le Belmont [News]
Montreal, QC – Hip Hop Karaoke Montreal (HHKMTL) is kickin’ off its first show of the summer with an R&B edition this Saturday, July 12, lining up the evening set list with smooth, classic jams of the golden era.
This special R&B edition, deviating from HHK’s rap-centric manifesto, will also incorporate special collaborations with local event Chocolate Jungle, already a Montreal nightlife staple in less than a year, dedicated to the conservation of hip-hop culture and community by way of hypnotic tracks, eccentric fashion and impressive dance choreography.
In other news, with HHKMTL shifting to Saturday evening (as opposed to its traditional Thursday nights), the show’s organizers are expecting a shift in the standard audience demographic, with working folk enjoying their weekend groove by staying out later and partying harder. In addition, HHKMTL will no longer remain a monthly soirée, but rather an intermittent event with emphasis on collaboration with other local events.
As usual, the one and only DShade will be hosting the upcoming festivities, and Fool’s Gold Records’ DJ Shash’U will be on the turntables heating up the night! HHKMTL starts things off with this summer kickoff event on July 12 at The Belmont (4483 St. Laurent). Doors will open at 10 p.m. Cover is $5 before 11 p.m. and $10 thereafter. More info after the jump.
NATIVE SHOE GIVEAWAY
To spice things up even more, HHKMTL has partnered up with budding new shoe line NATIVE, and will be giving away the hottest summer styles throughought the night. As the the Vancouver’s Aleesha Harris wrote back in March, Vancouver’s Native Shoes have firmly stomped its unique thermoplastic footprint on the shoe industry. The company, which debuted in 2009, has carved out a niche for itself in the proverbial shoe closet among companies such as Vans and Crocs, leaving an almost cultlike following in its wake.
