This coming Thursday, Aug. 8, make your way to The Bourbon Room (400A Dalhousie St.) in downtown Ottawa for a special performance by three of Toronto’s most promising young talents including Burna Bandz, Houdini, and J Neat.

There’s also some local up-and-comers on the bill including CAYO, King Z and more. Additional music will be provided by DJ Porte.

The event, brought to you by CapCityHipHop, will be all-ages but anyone 19+ will be able to access to the licensed area in the venue for drinking. Anyone under the age of the 16 will need to be accompanied by a guardian and tickets must be purchased by an adult. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show will kick off a 7 p.m. You can find tickets now on Eventbrite and various Ottawa walk-in retail locations including NRML.
