Talib Kweli

DJ night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli has performed with many acts over the years -- his work with Mos Def as Black Star and DJ Hi-Tek under the Reflection Eternal are the particular standouts -- but no matter the name, he's known for conscious lyrics and politically charged actions. Kweli DJed at Little Miss Whiskey's during the second Obama inauguration, and he's back on H Street this week for a free party on the upper levels of the newest RedRocks pizza joint. Admission is free, but space is limited, so make sure you show up fashionably early.
