ART OF COOL HONESTY HOUR [WEEK 1]
The EXTREMELY dope Bull City-based Art Of Cool Festival has brought a sense of class and energy to the burgeoning music community in the Triangle region. I've experienced the positive vibes of the festival first-hand (i.e. The Foreign Exchange, Cody Chestnutt, Amel Larrieux), and I can safely say that it is garnering national attention. Along with Hopscotch Music Festival (and now Moogfest), we are showcasing to the musical world that indeed the South has something to say (to quote the mighty Outkast). This region is a hotbed for good, dope music. Leading up to the third year of AOC, fans and music aficionados can get weekly teasers from a new video series documenting eleven weeks of honest musical dialogue. Week 1 features lovely ladies Chelsey Bentley (@BCGmarketing_) and Cicely Mitchell (@drcicy) discussing Anderson .Paak, The Internet, Yeezy, as well as Kendrick Lamar's grand opus To Pimp A Butterfly. I am looking forward to the rest of this series leading up to May 6th-8th. I will be there...will you? Stay tuned for more insight into the AOC experience.
