The New/Next Film Festival afterparty featured a performance by Baltimore Club headliners TT the Artist and Dapper Dan Midas Friday night at Metro Gallery. Both artists served a commanding presence on stage with rapid fire beats, thought provoking lyrics, and idiosyncratic points of view.
Friday’s performance was both invigorating and communal. Dapper Dan Midas and TT the Artist engaged the crowd, creating a sense of unity and vibrant celebration of dance, rhythm, and the urban experience while recognizing Baltimore creativity and artistry.
Dapper Dan Midas featured dancers Jaylen Brown and Jack Estep. TT the Artist brought up dance crew TSU Tery, TSU Rum, and Queen Stylzz “the Queen of Baltimore” with DJ Mighty Mark invited all the sexy ladies on stage following an impromptu dance battle in the crowd. TSU Terry performed Roll Call written by Marquis Jamal Gasque, Tedra Willson, Terry Wedington and produced by Mighty Mark. Additional cameos included Baltimore Bop creator Run It Up Jordan and Park Heights Strut King Bunkey Jr.
