The Summer closes with another promising Holocene takeover, and it’s Northwest vs. Everybody
For all the sorry souls who missed it, We Take Holocene III featured Alia Zin, Blossom, Karma Rivera, and Vytell. Each artist from the all-female lineup brought some serious juice to share with the crowd, and we drank it right up. There was also a live on-stage painting happening throughout the show from artist Ta Zha, and a surprise (?) dance element was added to the show during Alia Zin’s set.
And it was so incredibly lit:
Needless to say, the evening was yet another successful Holocene takeover, complete with a packed house of Portland hip-hop fans, quality local artists artists and loyal supporters.
“With every We Take Holocene I want to give our audience an experience,” says Glenn Waco, the creator of the Summer hip-hop concert series.
In May, Waco sat it out for the most part, only taking the stage as a host, to perform his fresh new single “Assata” and to provide extra hype support for the girls. For this one, though, Glenn is back as billed performer for the evening, no doubt to promote his upcoming album Human. And I’m almost positive he’ll perform its lead single “Assata,” which focuses on the way law enforcement has wronged the black panthers. Waco has also been shooting scenes for the “Assata” music video every time he makes a trip back to Portland.
