Words by LargeUp Crew—
We’ve been bigging up Jamaican director Storm Saulter and his directorial debut Better Mus’ Come for years, and, recently, we told you about the long-awaited NY premiere of the movie at Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theater. Well, we’re pleased to announce the event’s gotten even more exciting with the addition of dancehall legend turned festival-tune revivalist Mr. Vegas, who will perform what is sure to be a historic unplugged set prior to the screening. We can’t say for sure but we think this might be the first time a dancehall artist has been billed at Lincoln Center.
Tickets for the event, which is hosted by Dahved Levy and also includes a Q+A and panel discussion (with LargeUp’s Sherman Escoffery) moderated by Moikgantsi Kgama of presenters ImageNation as well as a cocktail reception, are available for $25 through Lincoln Center’s box office. But we’ve got a pair to give away, and these ones come with a bonus: Winners will be able to meet and greet Vegas and Storm. To win, make sure you’re following LargeUp (@largeupdotcom) on Twitter, and RT the following: I want to win 2 tickets to #BetterMusCome with #MrVegas at Lincoln Center.
For a preview of what’s in store on Thursday, watch the trailer for Better Mus’ Come and our LargeUP TV episode with Storm. And catch some clips from Vegas’ recent performance at Miss Lily’s Variety earlier this month, while you’re at it— you haven’t seen him play unplugged before, you’re in for a treat.
