Featuring a special DJ Set and presentation by DJ KTF!

This November, CAS is celebrating the 20th anniversary of one of the most significant hip hop albums: A Tribe Called Quest Midnight Marauders!

Along with De La Soul, Jungle Brothers and Queen Latifah, A Tribe Called Quest were part of Native Tongues, a hip-hop collective modeled on Afrika Bambaataa’s Zulu Nation. On their third LP they balanced socio-political consciousness with light ditties about getting a milkshake underpinned by kickin’ jazz-funk grooves. It reached Number One on the Billboard R&B/HipHop charts and remains A Tribe Called Quest’s most commercially successful effort.

Join us to first listen to music that either inspired or was relevant to this LP such as Jungle Brothers, De La Soul and Queen Latifah followed by local expert DJ KTF dropping some knowledge about the album.

Then the lights go down, the volume goes up and we play the album from beginning to end on vinyl on our audiophile hi-fi.

Food/Drink will be available from Empire’s Chinese Kitchen, which is an experience in itself.
