DJ & Dance, Seasonal Special Happenings

LKWD Music Fest

When: Sat., Aug. 23, 2 p.m. 2014

GZA’s 1995 masterpiece, Liquid Swords, is considered by many to rank among the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. There’s something beautiful and jangly and strange about the Wu-Tang approach to the genre. GZA takes it to another level on this one (and the guest appearances, along with RZA’s production, kick it even higher). Lay low this afternoon and toss this one on your Spotify playlist. GZA’s sharp lyrical martial arts distill the best of Wu-Tang. Nearly two decades after dropping that album, the Genius rolls into Lakewood for the third annual LKWD Music Festival. The full lineup includes: The Coup, Fiscal Spliff Band, Djapo Djembe Orchestra + Dancers, the Floorwalkers, Cotton Jones, Nomads, Nights, Commonwealth, Fake Species and plenty more. Cleveland Flea will stage a pop-up market boasting awesome vendors, and the food and drink options will dazzle all day and night. If you missed the last two years, then surely you already know what your Saturday plans are. (Sandy)
