There's a lot to do this weekend. It's August so that means this month is yo last chance for some summer-fun. Here's what to do. Friday at Charley's in Fircrest, yeah I said Fircrest, go see Fame Rilla, Q-Dot, Darius, and C.H. of Clear Mind. It's a good bill and the show starts at 9pm. Q-Dot's been on a roll as of late after releasing his new album, "Declaration of Dopeness" and C.H. is an M.C. in Washington who has roots in the other Washington, D.C. that is.
If ya looking for some actual outdoor summer-festival fun, then go to Peoples' Park on Saturday at noon for the 5th annual Hip-Hop In the Park. This event is put on by The D.A.S.H. Center For the Arts and is one of the most fun community events this city has to offer. This summer there will be performances from the D.A.S.H. students, Awall A.K.A. 2-Piece, Xola (formerly Kid Sensation), and myself. Get there with some money if ya can because there will be lots of venders. This Hip-Hop In the Park should be extra fun - due to the beer-garden. This is the first time there will be a beer-garden at Hip-Hop In the Park - so props to The Tempest.
End it all on Sunday night by doing something good and meaningful. Hit The Backstage Bar and Grill where there is a benefit/fundraiser for Christopher Virdell and his family. Chris has been missing since Feb. 9th 2012. Tickets are $15 at the door or $10 in advance and can be purchased on brownpapertickets.com or through the Virdell Family. Tacoma M.C.'s Jay Barz and Illizm will be getting-down and at 11pm there will be a firework show. If anyone knows any information about Chris's disappearance, please call 253-200-7856.

Banff National Park is a breath of fresh air. A small mountain town with world class facilities...
Too many cover-bands play at The Swiss.
