Mex Tequila Bar was officially shut down on Wednesday February 26th, OpenFly Magazine had the pleasure of being invited to see Baltimore's own lyricist 7vencity perform. Once his segment started and music came, played by DJ Dezo, the crowd immediately showed unconditional love and respect. The energy was upbeat from 7venCity's hits like Get Low, Really Wish and even debuting a snippet of his new project Clear Skies. The atmosphere was filled with nothing but positive vibes, support and crowd participation. This young, talented individual has a lot in store for them.

Felt a lot like Christmas in November this past weekend as fans anticipated the debut of Best Man Holiday. And guys who were in the dog house heard the news via twitter and social media that a trip to the theater could get them off the naughty list!!! Yes… Its that good!!!!
The Best Man Holiday, is director Malcolm D. Lee’s follow-up to 1999′s The Best Man, in which the ensemble from the original movie spend a very dramatic and unexpected December weekend together.
The film had an estimated budget of $17 million and was expected, per an L.A. Times interview with its studio’s head of distribution, to pull in just about that much during its opening weekend. Instead, Holiday brought in more than $30 million, nearly doubling its low budget in a matter of days.
The Monday after Holiday’s debut, show times were still sold out across theaters as early as 10am. Can’t wait to see the numbers after this weekend, Best Man has been doing great!
Saturday, November 9th 2013 I attended the Live Stage Play "Couldn't See It Coming" at Goucher College written by Boobee James, produced and directed by Boobee James and Mike White.
"Couldn't See It Coming" is a story about two struggling siblings who are striving to fulfill their dreams. Along the way there's obstacles, drama, infidelity, suspense, tragedy and much more! So many twist and turns, the title holds true through every scene.
Before the play began ticket holders had the opportunity to network and experience an artistic culture. The theater housed a live band, amazing food and treats from vendors across the city. There were musical performances by Blaqstarr and Tt The Artist, a great transition into the production.
From the opening of the first scene the play was already entertaining! Each act was filled with comedy, poetry, music and tragedy. So unpredictable that there were several times during the play members of the audience said aloud "I couldn't see that coming!"
Sometimes writers and directors make things to unbelievable in a stage play and it takes away from the quality of the production. This was not the case here. In fact the surprises were very realistic and made you think about how things like this happen all the time!
Overall, the play was very good. All the actors did exceptionally well as their characters and I'm looking forward to seeing much more from such a talented group of people!
Terrance Porter as the Narrator/Poet, Tyrell Martin as Arthur Bell, Boobee James, Linae Bullock as Khadijah, Josh Austin as Yusuf, MikeWhite & Terry Hosley as Victor,
