After Party featuring DJ Spinna
Dance the night away at a lively After-Party following the performance, featuring Brooklyn-born hip hop producer DJ Spinna. As cornerstone of hip hop’s late 90’s indie-uprise, DJ Spinna has broken down musical barriers between the worlds of hip hop, deep house, soul and jazz through esteemed artist collaborations and an obsessively curated vinyl selection.
