CYPHER NIGHT AT MAXIE'S, HOSTED BY DJ HA-MEEN
A cypher (in Hip Hop parlance) is an exchange of ideas. This can happen with sound, image, and movement... but *especially* with voice.
Maxie's has partnered with DJ ha-MEEN to present a monthly showcase of our local and regional vocalists, including emcees (MC's, rappers), singers, poets, beatboxers, monologists, and perhaps more.
The first hour (7-8pm) will be completely "open-mic" format. Just show up, and sign up.
The second hour (8-9pm) will feature invited poets and singers.
The third hour (9-10pm) will be the emcee cypher, in which the DJ will play a continuous, diverse selection of beats for emcees to rhyme over. "Off-the-dome" freestyles AND pre-written rhymes are welcome.
Cypher night is FREE and open to all ages. Please note that some language and subject matter may not be appropriate for young children... we won't be censoring the artists!
If you have questions or want to participate, please message DJ ha-MEEN here (or by text: 607-227-4295).
