The Famous Factory and Sickamore, in association with XXL magazine, are proud to present the latest installment of The Famous Factory Show this Friday (July 23) in Brooklyn, New York, featuring a special set by Curren$y.
The New Orleans native will perform his new album, Pilot Talk, live in its entirety. Dom Kennedy, Laws, Skyzoo, and Skotch Davis will also hit the stage during the event, which will be held at the Public Assembly in Williamsburg.
The Famous Factory Show provides the Internet’s most dedicated fans an opportunity to see the artists to which they’ve given the heaviest online buzz. In addition to assembling those in-demand artists from all across the U.S., The Famous Factory Show is also meant to open doors for younger audiences, who often don’t get the chance to see their favorite artists perform inside 21-and-older venues.
“I wanted to create an experience for teenagers to experience the artists they helped build on the blogs,” says show founder Sickamore. “Arcades are gone, as well as skate [rinks]. The Factory is that new place for them to get together.”
This will be Curren$y’s second Famous Factory performance. Spitta headlined the inaugural concert of the monthly series last May alongside Vado, Sean Price and Rich Hil. Nipsey Hussle, Donnis and Big K.R.I.T performed in June.
