The Return of Cody ChestnuTT: Saturday, July 3rd.
The ever eccentric, peculiar, and talented Cody ChesnuTT. It seemed like this quirky brotha was poised to be our next Black rock savior of sorts. But he came in and largely bowed out of our musical world in 2002 like a flash of light. Almost eight years later, he reemerged this past Spring with a new single and is now set to take to the stage in NYC tomorrow as part of the Weeksville Heritage Center's Garden Party event, commemorating Emancipation Day! I'm sure Cody will have copies of his new EP Black Skin/ No Value on hand to vend. In addition, the event features a film screening and a lecture on the history of Haiti.
More info here. Have a happy Emancipation Day! Have fun, y'all!!
Note: if you don't know about Weeksville or Emancipation Day (as it pertains to Blacks in New York City), do your homework.
