What You'll Get
Music is force powerful enough to calm a baby, soothe a wild beast, or compel the two to dance with each other. Be overcome by this deal to see the ONE MusicFest at The Masquerade on Saturday, September 1, at 1 p.m. Gates open at noon. For $30, you get a concert package (up to a $72 value) that includes:
- One general-admission ticket (up to a $52 value)
- One T-shirt (a $20 value)<p>
Now in its third annual year, the ONE MusicFest invites a lineup of more than a dozen artists for an outdoor jubilee of hip-hop, R & B, and deejay-ing. The genre-blending Santigold headlines behind this year’s Master of My Make-Believe, a follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2008 debut that featured the track “L.E.S. Artistes.” Before she broke out, Rolling Stone heralded her “kaleidoscope of organic and synthetic sounds held together by [her] attitude-filled flow.” Needling guitar riffs and hip-hop backbeats loom in hit single “Disparate Youth,” an anthem that triumphantly declares “a life worth fighting for.”
Liverpool-born Marsha Ambrosius boasts the room-rattling voice, but not the contractually obligated rose-petal entrance, of a true R & B diva. Part of the Grammy-nominated duo of Floetry, her solo album, Late Nights & Early Mornings, rolls glossy vocals over a pavement of piano and percussion. Finally, up-and-coming rapper Big K.R.I.T.’s lyrics, production, and Jimmy Carter campaign button bling all scream, “I’m from the South.” The Mississippi MC spent years building cred with underground mixed tapes, only this year to have both a major release, Live from the Underground, and his face on the cover on True Magazine’s Southern Respect issue.
Along with some 11 hours of live music, the ONE MusicFest has slated DJs, a video-confession booth, henna artists, and real-time big-screen Twitter boards. The festival has also partnered with the Food Truck Showcase for a fleet of four-wheeled kitchens that serve paninis, gyros, crab-cake sandwiches, and deep-fried stacks of vinyl to diners.
