heems Heems, Dapwell, Prince Rama and LE1F to Perform at the Whitney Museum This Sunday

For Das Racist fans who were devastated by the news of their break up last year, this weekend offers a chance to see Himanshu Suri (Heems) and Ashok Kondabolu (Dapwell) perform music, wax eloquent at a panel discussion and display visual art. Part of the Blues For Smoke weekend-long festival, but this particular showcase will be held at the Whitney Museum in the second floor galleries this Sunday, April 7 from from 11 AM — 6 PM. The festival seeks to showcase younger artists who are working within the bounds of rap, hip-hop and soul.

The musical sets will start at 1 PM and go until 4 PM. Aside from Dapwell and Heems the lineup also includes pop junkyard group Prince Rama and emerging rapper LE1F. At 4 PM “Chillin Island Live: A Panel Discussion” will begin. Aleksey Weintraub, perhaps better known as Lakutis, is also a collaborator in the exhibit, which is presented by Himanshu Suri and Greedhead Music.

The Whitney museum is located at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street. For more information visit their website or read the event listing here.
