Friday, Friday, Friday! The North Texas Hip-Hop Showcase, presented by us here at the Dallas Observer, brings heavyweights under the bright lights at the Granada Theater. In addition to -topic (pictured above), the show will feature Blue, The Misfit, Sam Lao, Lord Byron, Jaeson Green, AV the Great and your headliner, A.Dd+. The surprises planned will actually surprise you, I promise.
Tickets are $15 and you can buy them here. There's also a VIP package that's so exclusive only four spots are available and they aren't for sale. You have to win them right here.
Enter to win by doing a good deed for North Texas Hip-Hop. Buy a ticket to someone's show (definitely doesn't have to be this one), buy an album, put up some fliers, tell your Facebook friends about your favorite rapper or hip-hop night, whatever you can think of.
In order to win, Tell us what you did in the comments below, on Facebook or Twitter. You don't have to provide proof, necessarily, but those who do will have a better chance at the prize. We'll pick two winners based on creativity, energy and probably some arbitrary whims. You have until Thursday at 5 p.m.
What you get if you win is two of the four best seats in the house. We can't tell you where they are or what makes them the best seats yet, because that would ruin the biggest surprise of the night, but rest assured you will get a new Facebook profile picture out of it. There's more:
North Texas Hip-Hop Showcase VIP Package -Two exceptional tickets to the show on Friday -Two A.Dd+ t-shirts -A pair of tickets to Gorilla vs. Bear Fest 4 -Two Granada t-shirts -Two A.Dd+ albums -Two North Texas Hip-Hop Showcase posters
It's a lot. Make it a good deed.
