Urban Renewal

Lately, it seems there’s been a rise in events combining live music and visual art. Saturday’s Soul School Special Assembly at Mix Ultra Lounge is no exception. Hosted by Serum, the event features national artists Sket One, Pon, and Shane Jessup, and local artists Duane Hosein and Spen One. On the audio front, there will be live performances by Sev Statik, Rhema Soul, Pornobots, and Fusik, as well as DJ sets with Haviken Hayes and DJane.

“[It’s] not the first of its kind for South Florida, but definitely a progressive step for the urban arts scene down here,” event organizer Alex Vidal says. “With the websites wizardsleevetoys.com and wstworldwide.com, and the launch of our Soul School events, it’s exciting to be a part of something in its growing stages as far as mainstream/underground popularity.”

Soul School’s in session from 5 to 10 p.m. at 1903 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. Tickets cost $10. Call 954-925-2555, or visit wstworldwide.com.
