In response to Reply # 4


          

This sounds like an incredible event! When, Where? I'm in Central Brooklyn and work with an organization that serves children and families of Crown Heights and Bedford Stuyvesant. This'd be an amazing thing to take a group of kids to. Not only would it be great to expose some teens to some great music. But also to get up close to the artists, rather than BBkings or the Garden, where you don't get to interact.

We gotta get the info!

In response to Reply # 0


          

I already loved that Dave invited artists that are not necessary popular household-named artists on his show to perform but he is wanting to create an even betta venue for their talents to be showcased. Maybe Dave Chapelle will be the jumpoff person to lead the masses into this other side of hip hop.....Just think!!!!!!! VIVA LA REVOLUCION, DAVE!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not hearing anybody say they actually have tickets. When I googled the block party/watts revival no one was even saying anything but 1 iota - even Chappelle's site. I am way too excited about this all-time-greatest-lineup for it to not happen!

Mr. Chappelle's block party

>The concert and the events surrounding the concert will be filmed in a documentary style. This film will establish the importance of the event and capture every aspect of the concert, from the performances on stage to the people attending the neighborhood block party and most importantly the events of the backstage areas as the artists spend time with Dave Chappelle, jam together and participate in the Brooklyn block party.

In response to Reply # 26


          

This excerpt was taken from MTV.COM

There's nothing funny about Dave Chappelle's latest project. In fact, it's downright ambitious.

On September 18, the comedian will celebrate the music and culture of New York by throwing the Dave Chappelle Block Party, an old-fashioned neighborhood jam that'll include musical performances from an all-star lineup of his favorite hip-hop and R&B artists. Kanye West, Lauryn Hill, Talib Kweli, the Roots, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Common and Dead Prez and are slated to take part, with Chappelle serving as master of ceremonies for the event.

"I'm glad to be a part of it. Dave just called me and broke it down," said Mos Def. "A lot of my friends and heroes are going to be there. It's very inspiring."

The party will be shot by acclaimed director Michel Gondry for a potential DVD release. Chappelle is hoping to re-create the vibe of Wattstax, a 1972 concert and subsequent film set in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles that featured performances by funk, soul and gospel artists like Isaac Hayes and the Bar-Kays.

Sources say Chappelle conceived the project by himself and is funding it out of his own pocket. He has sworn everyone involved in the project to secrecy on its location and other details of the event. Fans who register online are being bussed to a secret location in Brooklyn from another secret location elsewhere in the city. The concert is expected to take place all day.

"If all the surprises come through, this cannot be missed," said Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson of the Roots, who will serve as the event's musical director.

It would be so worth it.. Even from Toronto, 12PM-9PM is equivalent to like 4 concerts.. And you won't find that lineup anywhere else either.

i figured they would get rid of my "requested" status also, but they didnt.

it's reasonable that way too many people already registered for this: okayplayers, spitkickers, and lurkers alike.

In response to Reply # 41


          

the day it came out (or close to when), about 2 weeks ago - TRIED to register, ended up getting frustrated as the site kept taking me to the SAME beginning page.

I went back & re-did the registration quite a few times, finally saying FUK it, i'm in this damn sysyeem under 4 FOUR e-mail names. But STILL don't know if i registered.

& what's up w/the "no logos" or white shirts thing? i personally don't do much of either, but find this a bit weird, whether filming or not...& being bused in ONLY? if its a block party, won't the people who live there be able to attend? the people whom LIVE on the block will already be there, so technically you could go thru their house, out the front door it would seem, once one of your bwoys find out the spot (thought this is a bit far fetched)...unless they're clearing all folk from their buildings that day too...

this whole set-up is weird, & a mystery...& then the pics thing?

hmmmm...

this event probably ain't even real.

I requested 2 tickets on Sept. 2nd and it has said "requested" since then. I'm from Cali, and I'm planning on flying to NY and meeting my friend from Boston to see the show, but everyday the price to fly goes up. I don't want to buy my plane ticket to find that my tickets have been denied. Hopefully we will get some info on this soon... I'm about to drop $250 to see this show! :crazy:

just curious, cuz a lot of folks still are 'requested' status on that site, not rejected or confirmed.

In response to Reply # 56


  

          

I just checked the site today. Then I had to sit through a meeting with a big a$$ kool-aid smile on my face. Trying to explain to a bunch of professors and foriegn grad students why this is the concert of a lifetime!


I think either the fact that I used a zipcode within a 100 mile radius or that I unloaded a picture had to do with it. Cause my friend didn't get any yet either.

p.s.s.t. I am a GREAT a$$ guesser, i thought this would happen - note the SAT score !!!!

For those of you who already got tickets -- when did you request them??
Does anyone know for sure how many are being given out??

After a controlled experiment (read: logging on under a bunch of different emails, plus my friend's name), I believe I have unlocked the mystery to getting a ticket.

It may not be too late. I changed a zipcode and got tickets. Plus, you can just use a different email address. (note: google new york city zipcode and you're sure to fine one) Anyway, I think like any other biz they take their sweet time in handling isht and stop working at 4:59. So, you might want to give it one last try.

I requested two tickets and I was going to fly from Cali to see the show, but now the plane ticket price is wayyyy high. I wish they would just confirm or decline all the tickets.

I don't have any friends or family working in the music industry. I am from Brooklyn. I just got an e-mail and I responded to it. Most of the people going to the show are REGULAR people who heard about it through websites or e-mails.

I'm sorry you didn't get a FREE ticket, brother. Don't blame it on Dave though, or negate the spirit of him doing the show.

I love people from around the world but I know their are forces moving wickedly for selfish intentions around these tickets. Everyone I've asked about these tickets never has a response or carries I got mine type of attitude around going. So if I sound frustrated I am becuase i want to go and enjoy that day myself for more than bragging that I got a ticket purposes.

I know I'm more than a day late and a dollar short on this thing but hey closed mouths don't get fed either so is there ANYBODY out there with tickets that can come off them because they can't go or have extras ? Please let me know so I can jump on the bus to NY (in what would be my 1st trip) tommorow. Just a head that feels like this is a historic event that I need to do everything in my power to try to get to. I ain't got thousands of dollars for tickets or anything but I just really wanna be a part of show featuring these artists that I admire and respect and am inspired by. If anyone can help, thanks in advance.

148. "Right Around The Corner"
In response to Reply # 146


          

I was walking home last night and passed by the venue. Its right around the corner from my house. I don't want to give too much away, but its on the border of Clinton Hill and Bedford Stuyvesant. I KNEW it'd be in my neighborhood. I justdidn't think I'd be able to see it from my roof. Oh well, glad I got tickets.

YO DAVE and others on the bill - I got the chill green room if you need a breather.

review from me:

it was insane, sickest show ever. i showed up early and got up front, maybe 5-10 people back. i was standing is the exact same spot from 2-10, not to mention all the standing i did before that. that was the only downside, all the waiting and standing. for the first 4 acts, there was like a 30-40 min downtime in between sets, then once the roots came out, it was on.

kanye came on first @ 2:30 with a marching band on the side. he was alright, no one was tired yet so the energy was decent. a lot of people were still missing at this point, not that many in the crowd.

next, dead prez came out, they was hot. eryka badu was next and jill scott followed. both ladies held it down.

dave chappelle was comn out in between shit and he was fucking hilarious, cant wait to see the dvd.

the roots came on at probably 6:30, im guessing but it was around then. they were pretty sick, although they didnt do a long set. they did the movement, and then jill scott and eryka came out for you got me. sickest version of you got me, eryka and jill scott! it was nutty.

after the roots finished, the band stayed on, and chappelle introduced the 3 sickest mc's on the stage at once. common, talib, and mos def. they was sick. couldnt believe i was seeing blackstar + common w/ the roots playing in the middle of a street in brooklyn. anyway, they all did some classic shit, respiration, definition, the 3 of em just kept on rotating, doin a couple solo songs, then grouping together for a collabo.
talib did I try, the blast, get by, and another from train o thought.

after everyone cleared the stage, mad people left, thinking it was over for some reason, but it was DEFINITEly not over. they started changing ALL the equipment, and setup 3 mics. it was about 40 minutes of waitn and guessing as to who the suprise closing act was. my money was on tribe called quest, which would have been sick as fuck. but it was none other than.......the FUGEEs. they blew the place up. did mad classic shit, ready or not, many mics, killing me softly, etc...
thats some crazy shit though, chappelle got the fugees to reunite and perform. i read something today about maybe an album from them in 1-2 years (allhiphop.com)

o well, that was my review, i wrote it quickly, but the show WAS the ill shit.

The 1st poster summed up the show beautifully. I still can't believe how hot and historic this concert was.

DAVE CHAPPELLE is the F'IN MAN for putting this all together. Even for being the host he's the man.

I still can't believe they got the Fugees to reunite, even if just for one night (which we hope it isn't). Forget all that Lauryn nonesense I hear folks spoutin'...this was about the GROUP, not the individual. After all the beef, the drama, and the babies seeing three people who feel like family to me come back together was magical.

Man, the Roots killed it. Jilly killed it. Talib, Mos, Common killed it. Erykah killed it, as did Dead Prez. Kanye assaulted it. It was straight murder up in Brooklyn yesterday. End of the day, none of us was left standing (how could we, our feet hurt too much!).

Man, that was the most amazing musical day in my life. AND it was right around the corner from home, so you know a brother dipped out to take mad breaks.

The show was magnificent, as the earlier poster said. But don't sleep on Jeru, Kane, Dice Raw, Jean Grae, Martin Luther, Bilal, who else? I think I saw Kool Herc back in the back.

Man, it was like woodstock in BK. At one point, Dave was killing time and Mos got on the drums and they did a bit with some jokes and the drums. Dave did poetry, "Rain Rain Rain. 5000 Black people. 19 White people. We're looking for the mexican."

Dave put on a great event. Everyone was wondering how it would go down, without it being mobbed by people, but I guess alot of people couldn't find it. They opened it up to the public in the afternoon.
The DVD has to be hot, I just hope they don't chop it up and edit the fuck out of it. Its bound to be a great buy. That day was history!!!
