I'm happy to announce a last minute booking for a party benefiting a very cool project! My good friend, dope dj and wicked graphic artist and illustrator, Coral Michelin, is raising funds to publish a book of 20 unique poster designs by some of Brasil's most interesting young artists. Each design in the Livro-Pôster Canção will relate to a certain song and each poster is detachable for framing or display.
I'll be joining the already illustrious line up of djs André Amaral, Preto Serra, Bernardo, Icaro dos Santos and Paul Medder tonight for a night filled with funky grooves and cool people. All this for the low admission price of R$15! Hope to see all of you there tonight for Boombox!
