The lighting from the skyscrapers cast a heavenly glow down on the proceedings popping off at “Elevate Block Party” at Woodruff Park in downtown Atlanta.
Rapper B.o.B., an Atlanta native (Decatur) blessed the outdoor party by ripping through a string of his best known hits like “Strange Clouds,” “Airplanes,” “Nothing on You,” “So Good” and other cuts that riveted the audience at this free concert.
The “Block Party” was hosted by radio personality Emperor Searcy and the entire “Elevate 2015” was curated by Fahama Pecou.
The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs is presenting The ‘Art of Organized Noize’ exhibit. The exhibit traces the legacy of Organized Noize and their Dungeon Family Collection (which includes Outkast, Goodie Mob, Joi, Slimm Cutta Calhoun, Big Rube and more) from their dirt-floor basements to stages around the world. The exhibition features archival items from Organized Noize and the Dungeon Family including photographs, artwork, studio equipment, notebooks, costumes and more.
The “Elevate” 2015 began on Oct. 15 and will continue on through Oct. 23. Log onto ocaatlanta.com for more information.
