A3C, A3C Hip-Hop Festival, Andy Allo, Atlanta, FunkJazzKafe, Joi Gilliam, Kat Goduco, ONE MusicFest
I will admit this was my first time going. It reminded me of an outdoor expanded FunkJazzKafe mixed with ONE MusicFest. The event included live performers, D.J.’s mixing, a B-Boy breakdancing contest, and panels on the music industry. A cool event, I’ll have to start going in the future.
I skated over after work to peep Andy Allo’s first performance in Atlanta, but unfortunately she was not a part of it. I will also admit, I was surprised an artist like Joi Gilliam was not included.
All in all, I cannot complain, just bummed I missed out on seeing my homegirl Kat Goduco there, and missed meeting Andy Allo. But I have been beaten up over the last few weeks, had a prior engagement and couldn’t hang.

Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
