Celebrate the 35th anniversary of 'Wild Style' style tonight at the the East River Amphitheater

There's a free SummerStage event this evening at the East River Amphitheater.

Here's more via the EVG inbox...

It’s tough to overstate just how influential Charlie Ahearn’s 1983 film, “Wild Style,” has been in the development of hip-hop culture. The evocative film culminates with an infamous, real-life 1982 concert that took place at the East River Amphitheater, in which the likes of Rammelzee, The Fantastic Five, and Treacherous Three, performed. Thirty-five years later, the stars of the film invite fans and friends to celebrate with them at that very place.

Featuring pre show hip-hop dance workshop with Fabel at 6 p.m.

Special Guests Include:
Almighty Kay Gee
Busy Bee
Charlie Ahearn
DJ Grand Wizzard Theodore
DJ Tony Crush
Grand Master Caz
Patti Astor
Rodney C

Note sure exactly what time the film screens (dusk?). The SummerStage website lists this event from 6-10 p.m.

The East River Amphitheater is in East River Park between Jackson Street and Cherry Street.

If this helps...
