This Thursday, The Hood Hippie crew will have a booth set up at Fondren First Thursdays. For those who don’t know, Fondren First Thursdays is a monthly arts, music and food festival that is held the first Thursday of each month in the Fondren Arts District of Jackson. (It’s happening the second Thursday this month because of the weather).
We will be posted up throughout the evening, so come through and meet us. We want to get to know more artists around Jackson and form closer relationships with the artists we have already connected with. This is just the first step for a number of major moves and projects that we have planned for the artists in this city, state and surrounding states.
We will have lots of cool stuff to check out and fun games and challenges for artists that would like to participate.
My personal favorite is going to be the Aux Cord Approval Challenge! We all the responsibility that a person takes on when they wield the aux cord. We’re going to have a portable speaker set up with an aux cord for musicians play their songs right there on the spot. The catch is that we are going to review the song right then and give a prize to the artists that get the approval nod. Are you confident enough in your music to take the challenge?
Don’t worry though if you just want us to hear your tracks that’s cool too.
We will also be having a contest for graphic designers, painters, graffiti artists, sketch artists, etc. to design the cover of The Hood Hippie’s first compilation mixtape!
So if you can, please come out and support the movement for a more artistic Jackson. We look forward to seeing you there and working with you all on some of our upcoming projects. Thanks to everyone that has continued to click our links and visit the site as we continue to build and grow as a brand. The wait will be well worth it.
Come Out and Get Connected! Don’t Miss The Wave!
