The term "party" has been worn out. The word is used to describe a diverse set of cultural practices from misogynist rap video debauchery to garish, hollywood-style orgies of celebrity worship. thePeople family has prided itself on staying rooted in what really matters conducting communal feasts on food for the soul (music being the main course). Partying just is so 2011.
The idea that music can anchor us to our spiritual homeland while taking us beyond the day-to-day didn't come out of the blue though. It originates from ancient sources, of course, but for the children of the hip-hop generation and beyond, there was a movement of young street corner shamans that translated the ancient wisdom into a vibrant global underground culture. Bobbito Garcia, is a member of this vanguard, a peaceful warrior who uses music and culture as weapons. Bobbito is one of the nations most respected tastemakers and his endeavors as a radio show host, a documentarian, club dj, writer, and more, span every relevant, urban, sub-cultural category of his era. His accomplishments are too numerous to fit in an invite. But the important thing to know is that, if you're tired of just partying; if you are ready for something next level, Saturday, at thePeople, is where you wanna be.
