Sip The Juice is proud to present a one-off party that Bristol hasn’t seen the likes of before: a rare showing of DJ Bobbito Garcia’s acclaimed basketball documentary, ‘Doin’ It In The Park’ complete with all-vinyl 45s DJ sets from Bobbito aka Kool Bob Love himself plus DMC champ Mr Thing, local hero Boca 45 and funk edits king Jim Sharp.
Back in the 90s, if you knew your hiphop you’d know about Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito’s show on WKCR radio. It ran from 1990-1998 and from Nas to Jay-Z to Big L to Wu Tang, the show gave many of today’s hiphop superstars their first few bars of airtime, and was rightly rewarded the most influential hiphop show of all time by Source Magazine.
But music isn’t Bobbito Garcia’s only area of expertise. As well as being a sneaker aficionado (his book ‘Where’d You Get Those?’ is essential reading for dap lovers), he can ball too. The cultural overlap between hiphop and basketball is bigger than Lebron James’s flip flops, and ‘Doin’ It In The Park’, a documentary focusing on pick-up basketball (aka street b-ball) co- directed by Bobbito is another superb entry in the list of films that bridges the gap between the sport and the art form.
Sip The Juice have secured an exclusive screening of the film and on the night will feature DJ sets from the aforementioned artists plus food from Bagel Boy, 5 Pointz giveaway and streetball competitions with the Bristol Braves basketball team in the yard too. So what you waiting for? Come watch a legend of the court and the turntables in action.
