On Friday, Oct. 23 and Saturday, Oct. 24 the Kamikazz Festival will take place at 100 Arch St. in Greenwich, CT.
The two day festival is featuring artists such as DJ Felli Fel, who sings the popular hit “Get Buck in Here”. The Knock Out Kings, ILO Productions, The Click Clack Boom, Villains, RJ Brachitta, Young and Divine, and the Super Mash Bros will also be featured Friday night.
On Saturday, the sold out show will be featuring artists Shwayze, Chris Webby, a Greens Farms Academy alum, Wiz, M. Ca$h, ILO Productions, and once again the ever popular Super Mash Bros.
The featured artists at the festival mainly fall under the genre of hip-hop/rap with the exception of the collaborators making up Super Mash Bros.
Nick Fenmore and Dick Fink are the collaborators that create the music for the Super Mash Bros. These artists mix all different types of songs together into what is known as a mash up. For example on their newest album “All About the Scrillions” one of their song’s cleverly encompasses Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle”, Ray J’s “Sexy Can I”, and Devo’s “Whip It” together, resulting in a catchy and entertaining mix.
Morgan Goldberg ’11 plans on attending the Saturday portion of the festival, where Super Mash Bros. will be featured. “I’ve been a fan of theirs for a while and I guiltily follow them on twitter” said Goldberg. Along with Goldberg, many Staples students are excited to attend Kamikazz.
Along with the lineup, all night smoke and laser dancing from 6:30 – 12:00 p.m. is provided, according to the official Kamikazz 2009 website.
Ella Hirten ’11 is excited for the festival and she predicts that will be Kamikazz “a really good time.”
The Friday show still has tickets available, with the total proceeds from both shows are going to help benefit Greenwich’s Arch Street Teen Center.
