TVD Ticket Giveaway: DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, Renegades of Rhythm Tour, 9/4-9/5, 9/8-9/9

DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist are joining together for what may be the hip hop celebration of the summer. Co-headlining the Renegades of Rhythm Tour, the turntablists and producers are honoring the work of hip hop legend Afrika Bambaataa.

The Renegades of Rhythm Tour is not like any other hip hop tour. It plans on taking attendees through the roots of hip hop via vinyl. And not with just any vinyl, but 650 hand-selected pieces from Afrika Bambaataa’s original record collection held in the Master of Records archive at the Cornell University Library Hip Hop collection.

A second show at New York City’s Irving Plaza was recently announced. Tickets for the second Irving Plaza show officially went on sale today; however, we already have a pair to give away. In addition to tickets for either of the NYC shows (9/4-9/5), we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to both the Fillmore Silver Spring (9/8) and the Baltimore Soundstage (9/9) shows!

Celebrating a founding member of hip hop culture is no easy feat. It takes the teamwork of two world-renowned DJs to properly pay homage to Afrika Bambaataa. Co-headliners DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist have both also had an impact on hip hop culture. DJ Shadow, aka Josh Davis, helped create the experimental and instrumental hip hop sound.

Cut Chemist, aka Lucas MacFadden, blends beats and rhythms from around the world to create an international sound. While both DJs have collaborated before, the Renegades of Rhythm tour is said to be unlike any other tour. The legend Afrika Bambaataa himself stated that the DJs “are going to blow your funky mind.”

Want to enter our three-in-one giveaway? To win a pair of tickets to the Renegades of Rhythm Tour, leave a comment below naming  your favorite DJ collaboration AND the city of the show you want to attend. NYC entries must have the date written. At the moment mine would have to be “Ten Feet Tall” by Afrojack ft. Wrabel.

Three winners will be chosen on Friday, August 8. Tickets are still available.

    “World Destruction” by Time Zone (Afrika BamBaataa, John Lydon and Bill Laswell) is definitely the one for me. If I win, I’ll take the September 4th Irving Plaza (NYC) tickets (though I will take the 5th if necessary – I want to see this show!)
