If you love hip hop you will not be disappointed.

The show was packed with awesome performances and special guests like Jesse-James Cameron from Makeshift Innocence (, Joe Nolan ( and Sykamore. Newcomer The Blue rocked the stage performing a powerful duet with Transit and beat-savvy DJ Crosswalk ( kept the tracks and filanthrofists going all night.

Overall we were completely blown away by this high-energy jam-packed show.

Indie Music Monday – Hello Moth
