Rich Medina 

When: Fri., July 4, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
Few hip-hop DJs have a résumé as stacked as Rich Medina’s. He played his first party when he was just twelve; by his mid-twenties, he had a bachelor’s degree from Cornell and was holding down residencies in New York City. Lil’ Ricky’s Rib Shack — his weekly Meatpacking District party in the 2000s — was so popular it lasted for nine years. (And according to Medina, the likes of Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and Prince could be seen getting down there regularly.) In 2007, he and hip-hop legend Q-Tip joined forces to create the weekly party Open in New York City. Today, Medina regularly performs all over the world in addition to doing spoken word and writing music stories. In short, he’s an absolute fiend and hugely accomplished. At The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland), he’ll be spinning his signature blend of hip-hop, house, soul, Afrobeat, old-school funk, breaks, and feel-good dance classics. Take advantage of the opportunity to catch him at such an intimate venue, on a holiday no less!
