Hip Hop Helps with Live Art and Music

Austin, TX-Members of Austin's Hip Hop Community will be donating their time and talents on behalf of local youths for a benefit concert and art auction on Saturday, May 22, 2010 at Chupacabra Cantina. Funds raised will go directly to The Cipher: Austin's Hip Hop Project.

The Cipher is a non-profit organization that uses creative expression and public performances to build a community of bright young leaders and engaged hip hop artists. The program provides positive learning experiences and the opportunity to record a compilation album. The participants gain confidence in their abilities, improve academic performance, build self-esteem, and acquire new life skills that help expand the possibilities for their future.

Local graffiti artists Sloke-One and Option will be creating art live while Blacklisted Individuals, R.A.S., Queen Deelah, Crew 54, Gidon, and Clemits perform. The finished pieces and donated pieces from J-Bro and emerging Filipina artist Sook will be auctioned off throughout the concert. The Public Offenders will be hosting the event.

All proceeds from the concert and auction will go to The Cipher; $5 suggested donation. Chupacabra Cantina is located at 400 E. 6th St.; must be 21 to enter. Doors open at 9 pm. For more information, email Gynae Davalos at To donate to The Cipher, visit
