Weekend Picks: Stretch & Bobbito's Film Premiere and After Party



Presented by Red Bull Music Academy, head to the Chop Shop this Friday for the film premiere of Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives. Featuring Q&A sessions with Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia in the flesh, you’ll have a chance to get to know the forefront guys in hip-hop radio followed by Chicago’s exclusive premiere after party.

A dynamic broadcasting duo, Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia began co-hosting on Columbia University’s WKCR’s late night show that helped jumpstart the careers of the biggest names in the industry – Notorious BIG, Jay-Z, Big Pun, and more. Selected by Source Magazine as “the best hip-hip show of all time”, this Friday you’ll experience a documentary that will expose the depths of their successful 90’s broadcasting career. The event will be hosted by Jeff ‘Chairman’ Mao that’ll guide the audience through a screening and Q&A session. Don’t be in a hurry to leave after the credits – the after party at 11PM will kick off with an electrifying opening set by special guest: DJ Pickel.
