B-Girl Be Summit

B-Girl Be 2006 Logo This second annual celebration of women in hip-hop is this weekend at Intermedia Arts. The Women’s Press has a pretty good write up on it.

Along with graffiti artists, DJs and spoken word artists, this year’s event highlights the dance aspect of hip-hop, paying tribute to the original definition of a b-girl, or “breaker girl.” … A major goal of the B-Girl Be Summit is to be family-friendly and to give the community, and especially young girls, a chance to participate.

The Summit runs this Thursday through Sunday (June 29 – July 2), but the exhibition is showing all summer (June 29 – August 19) at Intermedia Arts. The Capri Theater, Nomad World Pub, First Ave & 7th St Entry, the Hennepin Center for the Arts (Studio 5B), and Jawaahir Dance Company are also hosting events during the Summit. Check the full schedule for details.

I see that there’s a live music event on Friday night at Nomad, featuring Desdamona and Black Blondie (amongst others). Desdamona’s the bomb, and I just saw Black Blondie for the first time at the Uptown Pride Block Party. They are smokin’ hot!

I know everyone out there loves them some Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, so make some time to drop by Intermedia Arts this weekend.
