Athfest 2012: The Breaks and Showtime with Lowdive battle the heat

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012
The Breaks & Showtime with Lowdive

It happens at every Athfest.  You find yourself on the string of a yo-yo, rushing back and forth between the Pulaski Street Stage and the Hull Street Stage as the sun's heat beats down upon you.  Only the music keeps you going.

By the time the Breaks stepped onto the Hull Street Stage, it was already sweltering.  The fans, though didn't let the heat keep them down.  As the Breaks served up some solid southern rock headed by great female vocals, the crowd joyfully moved closer and closer to the stage, soaking in the tunes.

Then it was Showtime's turn to battle the heat.  Joined by rockers Lowdive, Elite tha Showstoppa and his Showtime gang gave us some rad beats and some pure quality hip hop.  It's no wonder they keep winning Flagpole Awards for their sound!  The crowd was loving it too.  This town is severely lacking in hip hop groups, so when we have a chance to party it up with talents like these, you can bet we take it!  The whole set was just awesome, but I've gotta say I loved it most when they mixed it up with a bit of reggae-inspired rap.  These guys are on the edge, innovators.  Way too cool!
