Fashion, hip hop music to create a fusion event

Date Posted: 2007-06-01

Talents of military musicians on Okinawa take center stage in a hip hop musical evening that also showcases the latest in fashions.

Sponsored by World Wide Soul Music, the June 8th event will strip away uniforms and weapons as local musicians demonstrate their musical dreams and aspirations for a better future. The Military Meltdown at the Ashibina Theater in the Korinza Mall in Okinawa City has six acts set to perform. MC Birdman, who will host the event, says “We have so many bright and talented stars here on Okinawa that we could easily do four or five Meltdowns without using the same acts twice.”

Most of the six artists are veteran performers active in the underground mix-tape scene. They include Siege, International Grindaz, Fly-Boi-Ent, and G-Status, with DJ B-Eazy on the boards. Siege will perform numbers from its just released independent CD. The CD is available at Spin City and Teruya Records.

A fashion show will center on the latest in formal and casual clothing lines, as well as swimwear that’s just right for the upcoming summer season. DV Clothing on Gate 2 Street is sponsoring the fashion show, and promises a bevy of fabulous models will walk the stage.

The Military Meltdown runs 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., with doors open at 6 p.m. for a happy hour autograph signing session. Organizers say they hope to create a monthly Meltdown, giving every interested artist or group an opportunity to perform.

Advance tickets are $20/¥2,000, good for both the show and the after-party at Club Else in Okinawa City. Tickets at the door will be $30/¥3,000. Tickets are available at Kadena ITT and Spin City. Ticket information is available at 090-1947-1624 in English, and 090-7587-1624 in Japanese.
