The One Program

posted by on November 16 at 11:43 AM

The realm of the three kingdoms…
l_00e978ca2cdce9ea70b0acf4702454ca-1.jpg…will be represented during The Program, a five-day hiphop festival curated by the Blue Scholars.


If Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland made even a little effort, the three cities could be experienced as one urban realm. The Program is a kind of hiphop expression for that desirable connection, the linking of the three into one idea, one consciousness, one movement. Swollen Members, Dyme Def, Sirens Echo are some of the many regional acts that will rock the one reality in the dead middle of December. To read more about The Program, go to its website. There’s lots to see; lots to think about.


This is the new dreaming.

the local music scene has become too cerebral for me as well.

As much as we shit on Portland, the three cities of Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland rock so much harder than any other group on the west coast.

What? no new group yet named Tumescent Turnups? or Wee Kuntzpel?

The hip hop scene here isn't too cerebral - it's pretty varied if you get into it. Check out The Saturday Knights if you don't want your music with any deep thoughts. Dyme Def is there too. Fun shit.

Saying "cerebral" is too cerebral for me.

There's some pretty good hiphop outside that triumverate as well. Mt Vernon? Check out the Dr. Bronners-esque manifesto!

Haha. I'm planning on going to at least two of these nights, but this article makes it sound so dreamy... I was hoping for some sick beats and sweaty dancing!!

Only lame-os refer to them as "the Blue Scholars". It's "Blue Scholars".
