LA's Legendary Club Elements Returns For One Night Only
Club Elements, once a West Coast staple for hip-hop fans and artists alike, will return to host the official Freestyle Sessions After-Party featuring a live performance by Mass Appeal recording artist Fashawn. Having played host to MC battles and concerts from the likes of Common, Mos Def and Jeru the Damaja to name a few, Elements was the place to be in the late '90s and early '00s. Now over a decade later, fans will get another chance to experience West Coast independent hip-hop the way Elements did it.
"Club Elements featured artists like Dilated Peoples, Jurassic 5, Talib Kweli…I feel like Fashawn is one of the new artists that fits right into the movement we left off with," says DJ Bonds, one of the producers of Elements. In moving to an all-ages format, organizers hope to bridge the generation gap showing the youth how emcees, DJs and B-Boys should (and can) unite under one roof, "just like we used to do it back in the 90’s." While all ages are welcome, a full bar is available for those of age with ID.
The Broadchester is located at 8604 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90003. Tickets for the event will be available at the door for $10 with a Freestyle Session ticket stub, $25 without. Pre-sale tickets are currently available for $15 and can be purchased through http://bit.ly/elements1107.
Premier West Coast hip-hop event Elements featured MC battles and the nation’s top independent hip-hop artists in the late '90s to early ’00s.
