305 Arts Festival
Most rappers couldn't put on a good show if their lives depended on it. But Garcia, a member of Crazy Hood Productions, knows how to rock the mike without relying on hoary traditions and making the crowd "say ho!" Whether freestyling over instrumentals of radio jams or ripping through "Anti-Social," a rock/rap track from his album of the same name, Garcia knows how to entertain an audience that doesn't have the slightest idea who he is. The 305 Arts Festival, a concert, fashion show, and networking event for local hip-hoppers, should provide a perfect introduction to one of the city's best MCs. The other two acts on the bill, South Beat Records' Mr. Haka and Mayday, aren't as seasoned as Garcia, but they've been putting in work, too.
