In an exclusive for SR News, I broke the news that Hash Rotten Hippo is launching an open mic night named ObSceNE in Gateshead at Arch Sixteen Cafe on Saturday 1st April.
North East Hip Hop’s leading blogger, Hash Rotten Hippo has announced a new Hip Hop night to take place in Gateshead as an SR News exclusive. The hub for local rap artists online is taking his brand to live events in partnership with the Arch Sixteen Cafe for open mic night ObSceNE. Premiering on Saturday 1st April from 8-11pm, ObSceNE is Hash Rotten Hippo’s first live event but is looking to put on regular events afterwards.
The event is being branded as more than an open mic night however as Hash Rotten Hippo describes it as a “North East Hip Hop social.” He explains ‘ObSceNE’ is an opportunity to “hang out with those square boxes you recognise from Facebook – get to know one another and if you fancy it, step to the microphone and show everybody what you’ve got! All are welcome and anything goes, please leave your negativity at home!”
ObSceNE is an event for fans and rappers alike but for those who want to perform Hash Rotten Hippo says “To make sure you get your spot on the mic, drop a comment and we’ll get you booked in! Feel free to bring your own beats, preferable on USB… 90Bro will have plenty instrumentals at hand for those just wanting to rap!”
