Scene: Stankonia Tribute

27 May

I don’t know much, but I do know this: Any event put together by Devoya Mayo and the Soulflower Group is a guaranteed good time.

Tonight the group takes over Audie’s in the Tower for Stankonia, a tribute to Outkast. Today is Andre 3000’s birthday, making the party even more timely and special.

If you’re able, I highly recommend checking out this event. It’s only $5 and, like I said, a guaranteed good time. At the last tribute, to Prince, Devoya handed out tiny tambourines she’d decorated with Prince’s symbol.

I mean, tiny tambourines. Come on.

Brunch was served on the patio while Dilla tracks were played. The crowd was enthused, the music was great, and the mimosas kept on coming. It really was a great experience, and one that I would do again.

Following are photos from the event.
