Now, nearly year later, the collective is back in action, and throwing a new night thatll put Broward rap back on the map. Its called the Get Down, and the premise is a little different than past outings: Its still weekly, but each Wednesday night has a different theme one week may hold a riotous, freestyle emcee battle and the next a chill, come-as-you-are affair with casual tunes spinning all night. This week, on the fourth Wednesday of the month, its the Get Downs live concert night; heading to the stage are The Benchwarmers and Killa Bus, each celebrating a CD release, along with Willy Evans Jr. and two Jacksonville acts, Tough Junkie, and The N Word. Therell be a busload of great music plus the weekly All-Night Garage Sale, where peeps can hawk records, crafts, clothes, or whatever else they want, and the Nintendo Grudge Match, a retro video battle taking place on an 8x 8 projection screen. The Get Down goes down at 10 p.m. at OMalleys Sports Bar (1388 State Rd. 7, Margate). Visit www.myspace.com/getdownrightnow for more info.
