Nothing is more complex than the human race, so to title an event The Human Race is a promise to deliver variety. In that sense, The Human Race, an art and music spectacle that mixes hip hop, country music, punk, electronica and visual art should deliver. Led by enigmatic hip hop performer and living Jack Yeats painting Jeremy Jermaine Jerome aka Just Ending Now, The Human Race is a one-of-a-kind multimedia event. Daniel Reynolds, better known on the streets of Buffalo as Scantron, will kick things off with an educational speech titled Hip Hop Society: In Search of a Cultural Definition, which will touch on the relationship between youth identity, crime, employment, and education. With acoustic guitars, drums, fiddle and bass, the Andrew J. Reimers Country-Punk Extravaganza is set to perform their brand of down-home punk music. Paired with cellist TJ Borden, electronic soundscape-crafter Art Lakewood brings a live show that will go beyond the extraordinary cerebral music found on his debut record (As People). Artist Alicia Paolucci will present an art installation simply titled Rap-sicles, which will employ some combination of hip hop stars and ice cream. Expect a surprise chalk-art installation from Ryan Meegan aka Chalker Ranger. Lloyd Taco Truck will provide culinary arts. With a ton of pre-Thanksgiving events to choose from, few have the potential for a thought-provoking, fun time that the Human Race promises. Oh yeah, and it’s free.
