The days are numbered until the highly anticipated return of It’s The Bronx, a marvelous two-day festival and event series that will run From Friday, March 23 to Saturday, March 24 at Union Crossing at 825 E. 141st Street.
When the preview for the event, held at the Bronx Brewery on 856 E 136th Street, was met with incredible success, the ‘It’s The Bronx’ team knew it was up to them to make the main event even better.
While the still under construction Union Crossing makes it’s final preparations, especially to the upper floors, Marco Shalma and his team at Round 7 are also working on their own finishing touches, both inside and out of the trendy new building.
Something else that Union Crossing just got was a brand new paint job at the help of Maria Oben.
But she didn’t just givie the wall a fresh coat, she designed a beautifully articulate mural for ‘It’s The Bronx,’ which will remain on the building’s ground floor when Union Crossing opens up for business.
Another mural by Natile Lucre is in the works on the seventh floor as well.
“The goal is to keep making this bigger and better,” Shalma said, continuing to explain that his newest event series will have over 100 performing artists spread over the two days.
“The Bronx has so much talent yet it’s hardly recognized, that’s what this is about, giving people that are willing to work and commit enough time the opportunity to shine in the name of the Bronx,” the creator added.
BronxNet TV will be utilizing their portable studio space for it’s live coverage of the event series. Meanwhile some of the upper floors of ‘It’s The Bronx’ will have live graffiti demonstrations, some of the Bronx’s best, and I mean best food cooking up like the Bronx Burger Co. in addition to many, delicious others.
Shalma also teased that some very exciting guest appearances will becoming along as well to Union Crossing that weekend.
“I can’t say who it is just yet, but that person is a big deal, believe me,” he teased.
Tickets will be available starting Friday, Feburary 22 at itsth
