Kanye West 'Yeezus' Listening Party

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
We're not really surprised that "Yeezus" leaked. The Kanye West album, which everyone is either hailing as a trainwreck or a transcendent, visionary work, is blowing up all digital communication networks and sending critics scrambling to put it in context after a few rushed listens. Let's all take a pause. Hold those "classic" proclamations, and take off the earbuds, step away from the keyboard and get immersed in the album with other real life humans. The record will be played end to end twice in a row on U Street Music Hall's sonic temple of a sound system, and then DJ Baronhawk will spin his way through other highlights from the Kanye catalog.
