This Wednesday evening at 7pm (for our weekly movie night in the shop), we are showing "The Harder They Come" - a 1972 Jamaican crime film directed by Perry Henzell and co-written by Trevor D. Rhone, and starring Jimmy Cliff. 

Enormously successful in Jamaica, the film also reached the international market and has been described as "possibly the most influential of Jamaican films and one of the most important films from the Caribbean"...

QC Sounds of Summer Block Party @ Hatties Tap & Tavern - May 28th

This Sunday at Hatties Tap & Tavern, we'll be out at the 1st annual, QC Sounds of Summer Block Party kicking off the Memorial Day weekend. Come check us out - along with Killiam Shakespeare & Reesa Renee, as they bless us with a sound track for the summer. 

-Killiam Shakespeare is a critically acclaimed music collective based in Philadelphia. Led by Steve McKie and Corey Bernhard – both seasoned musicians and producers whose status as artists are matched only by the caliber of performers they've collaborated with, including Bilal, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and John Legend. Versatility is synonymous with Killiam Shakespeare, who seamlessly blend jazz, funk, hip-hop, R&B and soul. The band prides themselves on their creative process and collaborations, which in turn translates into their progressive genre blending sound, as also noted “...breeds an eclectic palette that comes more from musical experience and community than outside sources." - Huffington Post

-Reesa Renee offers a very unique sound and energy that resonates with her fans and everyone she comes in contact with. With an undeniable energy both on and off stage she is destined to take this industry by storm!

"Think, Jill Scott, meets Andre 3000, just to turn back around and meet Lauren Hill. That's Reesa Renee all wrapped up into one. When Reesa Renee sings, I feel her heartfelt vocals deep down in my soul. Her voice is effortlessly beautiful, and powerful enough to make you stop what you're doing,listen and take notice..." - www.SalootMagazine.com

-To perfectly blend it all together, we have the genius himself on the wheels, DJ Justice (JETA Team) and the incomparable Bluz as your host.

-Did I mention vendors galore?!?! 
Noda's most creative boutique, Dupp-n-Swat, along with DRC, organize a premiere pop-up shop with local vendors. #shoplocal 

Food Truck on deck too!
