When: Fri., March 6, 5:30-8 p.m. 2015
In honor of Women’s History Month, Youth Radio’s Remix Your Life will be hosting an all-female panel of hip-hop musicians at its Bites and Beats showcase, which takes place on the first Friday of every month in its arts venue (1719 Broadway, Oakland). The women who will be sharing knowledge aren’t just musicians, either — they rock in journalism, poetry, youth advocacy, authorship, and production as well. The lineup includes MADlines, Coco Peila, Dom Jones, Rocky Rivera, Jazz Monique Hudson, Hazel Rose, and Talia Taylor. The inspiring group will speak about their careers and contributions to hip-hop, and will then open up into conversation with each other and the attendees. In addition to the talk there will be a performance showcase involving Youth Radio participants. Youth Radio’s Remix Your Life is a program for youth and young adults to develop their musical and artistic voice, offering education and professional studio time. Bites and Beats is one opportunity for participants to wow crowds with their impressively mature talents.
