Join me, editorial intern Xavier Perez, for the final R.O.O.T.S.2 show this Saturday at Rebar in what promises to be a lively mashup of photography, art, and hip-hop. The spectacle features live visual art created to the sounds of battling DJs. Under the stage moniker DJ X Boy Rd, I form one half of the duo PotoWotoMiniMac, and my partner is DJ L-Gee. We promise to get you on your feet with danceable hip-hop grooves, and diverse artistic stylings will have you staring at the stage all night. Can2 from Netwerk Exclusive, known around town for his wicked airbrushing and unique clothing line, will be the featured artist. Each piece of artwork will be up for sale and extremely affordable, often as low as $30 per piece. Chris Saucedo from Saucy Images will be snapping the official photos, capturing the event in case you forgot your camera or were just too drunk to remember the night. All images will be available at the show and can be found on his website at saucyimages.com. Free, 10pm Saturday, December 13, Rebar, 8134 Broadway, (210) 320-4091.
