Main Attrakionz to Host Gallery Send-Off Event This Friday

There's certainly plenty to do on Friday: If you're not already planning on attending our two-day BRIEFS Erotic Short Films extravaganza (which you definitely should) you should make your way to old Oakland for a one-of-a-kind music and art experience. Main Attrakionz are going on tour, covering the East Coast for a month-long stint ending at SXSW in Austin, Texas (full dates below). But they're planning an epic hometown sendoff event, a massive collaboration with the artists that call themselves the Ontask Family.

The event, which has been dubbed "Greenovaland" after MAz own Green Ova Records, will spotlight the duo's music and include a DJ set from standby production team Friendzone. Expect to hear the rappers' most well-known material, selections from their solo work, some new jams, and surefire appearances from Shady Blaze and the likes of the Green Ova Family, who will all be in attendance. Meanwhile, Ontask's Justin Carlisle-Angrand has overseen the production of a ton of original art to complement and enhance the experience. It'll be a great way to get acquainted with their music in an awesome little gallery space (curated by the folks at Flavorhood), but it's not huge so it'll fill up fast. Flyer, tour dates, and more below.
