Brooklyn keeps on taking it: ROCK THE BLOCK & ALTEREGOBAMA

This Saturday, I'll be painting at two of the coolest events in Brooklyn. In the early afternoon, I'll be at Yume (925 Bergen st bw Franklin and Classon, buzz 406) during the hot block party, ROCK THE BLOCK. Then I'll head to Greenpoint later in the evening to participate in the dopest Obama fundraiser. My Obama portrait will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go toward the campaign!

////////////////////////////// ALTER-EGO PRESENT /////////// ///ALTER-EGOBAMA


Time for your Alter-Ego to shred til dawn at our Evil Twin Dance Party /// Obama Fundraiser /// Moustache Extravaganza. Because Alter-Egos Support Obama. And we all need BASS.

My homies at ROCKSMITH Tokyo simply have some of the smartest and freshest tee designs out there. They came out with this super dope limited edition Ba-Rock Smith tee, which they will be selling at the event. This is the time to get yours since you will not see them in regular stores, not to mention that 100% of the sale profit goes toward the campaign.
