Tonight @RichMedina + Akalepse rock @LPRnyc w/Special Guest @LordFinesseDITC
If you miss the days of showing up at APT-NYC to find guest Lord Finesse rocking the basement crowd- see the DITC legend tonight at LPR courtesy of Rich Medina. “PROPS”, Wednesday nights at LPR’s Gallery Bar is the continuation of Rich Medina’s infamous Li’l Ricky’s Rib Shack parties on Wednesdays at the now defunct APT (RIP). Back at APT, Akalepse would rock the upstairs space, while Rich rocked the basement. For 8+ years NYC couldn’t front…the combo was unbeatable. When it was time to move on, they chose to do it together.
Details for tonight are:
Le Poisson Rouge, 158 Bleecker Street, Between Thompson and Sullivan
21+, FREE before 11pm, $5 until Midnight, $10 after Midnight
$5 well drinks from 10-11pm!
Lord Finesse is a Hip Hop artist and producer, hailing from The Bronx, New York. He is known for his strong lyrical ability and clever punchline delivery. Finesse became the leader of the popular New York underground crew d. I.T.C., an acronym for ‘Diggin In The Crates’. Future members included Showbiz & A.G., Diamond D, Fat Joe, O.C., Buckwild and the late Big L. The crew is responsible for releasing some of the most heralded underground hip-hop albums of the 90’s, including Show & AG’s Runaway Slave, O.C.’s Word…Life and Big L’s Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous.
New venue, new name for the party, new dynamic, same vinyl junkie DJs. Rich Medina and Akalepse continue to bring you that raw, outside the Top 40, heavy, fun, sexy, soulful and honest music they are both known and respected for. .

The housing works team accepted the check and they told me to tell you all THANK You for all the coat drive donations and for those who attended the after party.. 100 percent of the proceeds from the door were given to housing works right along with hundreds of coats!
Read below for the original event info and be sure to scroll down to the bottom to check out the Rapture video created from the life footage from the benefit concert.
An unlikely group (including a retailer/creative agency team, an adult-content website owner, an East Village event maven and a Brooklyn-born Emcee) have come together to host a coat drive and concert benefiting HousingWorks.org, a not-for-profit group dedicated to helping people affected by the linked-crises of HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
Cormega Explains More About HousingWorks
Although it formally began on February 16th, the biggest day of the coat drive will be the final day, on February 23rd. This Wednesday, February 23rd, from 7pm-10pm, the community can donate warm outerwear at Coat of Arms (43 Clinton St, New York, NY 10002), where they’ll get free tickets to the after party, as well as free CDs, event-related t-shirts and other swag (including Frank books).
The in-store event will feature an art auction of Brian Kavanagh’s urban photography, food from East Village purveyor Lil Frankie’s, as well as music by the legendary Beatminerz.
The after party (hosted by the lusciously tatted-up LES personality Alexandra Estevez) will feature a performance by Cormega, backed by his live band The Revelations. We’re looking forward to a diverse crowd from skateboarders and models, to Hip-Hoppers and downtown tastemakers. When a group as diverse as ours comes together for a greater cause, you can only expect the turnout to be just as diverse as its organizers.
