Melissa Czarnik Album Release & Film Premiere
Thu, April 20, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Join us at Urban Outfitters, Space Ninety 8, for the album release of emcee and poet, Melissa Czarnik’s forthcoming Rainbow Skies EP and the premiere screening of her short film, Significant One, starring Lynette Williams and Joel L. Daniels.
There will be food, drinks and mingling including a short discussion with the director and actors. Special guest performers include Ali Carter and Lynette Williams.
Rainbow Skies is the brainchild of poet and emcee Melissa Czarnik's hard hitting and melodic flow, who has been called by Bitch Magazine, "an inspiration to young emcees everywhere." Her 90s era storytelling evokes memories of her early inspirations like Nas, Lauryn Hill and Ani Difranco. There's one thing that all Czarnik fans can say, is that the soulful fluid rapper has produced a surprising, potent and thoughtful mix of funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop, a genre-defying sound that music lovers of all types can get behind.
Significant One is a smart romantic comedy that mashes contentious flirting, the denial of attraction, and soul searching between two strangers, in a way that brilliantly takes ingredients from Aziz Ansari’s Master of None and Woody Allen’s Manhattan to create the perfect recipe.
