I Am Legend - KRS-One | Slick Rick | Rakim | Bodega Brovas [Dallas Museum of Nature and Science Fair Park (what????)] - Perhaps the most insane show that will be going down this whole weekend. I guess it’s appropriate that the venue is a museum considering the hip-sop history that this lineup is responsible for. Also, we heard yesterday that the Bodega Brovas, locally-affiliated Headkrack, KeyNote, and Travii the 7th, will be opening? Cool.
All-Star Sneakend - DJ Clark Kent | Mayor | DJ Greg Street [House of Blues] - This one runs early, from 3-6pm, but promises to be a heavily attended event that will be a veritable who’s who of the sneaker game. Expect to see some insanity on display at this sneakerhead’s delight. There will also be a “Dunk Contest,” so bring your flyest Nike Dunk for a chance to win a juicy prize.
Doug E. Fresh | DJ Premier [The Boardroom] - From 5-9pm catch the Kick-Off Party with Doug E. Fresh, while the night cap will feature DJ Premier and be hosted by Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce. Yet another unbelievable All-Star event.

To Haiti With Love Dallas - Steve Austin | Yung Phill | Tomeka Pearl | Lil Ronnie | Blofly | Official | Jonny Price & Don D | CoLab | Dawg Wonder | Blaze Won [The Lounge on Elm Street]
