Beans @ MOCA (2/28)

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

MOCA Mix: listen: Beans w/special guests Poetic Republic & DJ ONIT

From anti-pop to Prefuse 73; from fashion spreads in glossies around the world to subway sessions of freestyle excellence; Beans has proven himself to be an icon no matter what he chooses to do.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet BEANS, aka Mr. Ballbeam. Hip-hop rebel. Wordsmith extraordinaire. Sonic architect. Fashion renegade. Published poet. Culture star. Raised in White Plains, NY and first picked up on in the mid-90's as part of the mythic Soup/Boom Poetic collective, the word began to spread. BEANS harkens back to the glory days when all it seemed to take was real talent, real passion and the desire to actually be real and simply shine.

Having shared stages and toured with everyone from Radiohead to Vernon Reid, Prefuse 73, Ratatat, Dabrye, Bill Laswell, The Rapture to Tortoise, The Locust, Battles to DJ Krush, Kool Keith, Pharoahe Monch to Aesop Rock, DJ Shadow to Cannibal Ox, Attica Blues to Terranova, plus Coachella and DJ gigs at The Guggenheim and with Missy Elliott. BEANS has displayed his skills and the response has been astounding.

8:00 pm FREE for Moca Members, $6 for non-members
