Presented in the style of professional wrestling events, these costumed performers play the roles of giant, city-crushing monsters similar to Godzilla and Gamera! Kaiju Big Battel brings you performances that are parodies of both professional wrestling and the tokusatsu kaiju eiga films of Japan.
On SUNDAY the National Hip–Hop Museum will host the 40th anniversary celebration of the First Hip-Hop movie, Wild Style!
Throughout the festival day, celebrations will include Kevin “Scene” Lewis live graffiti painting while DJ Tony Crush, DJ Grand Wizzard Theodore, and DJ Kevie Kev Rockwell spin classic hip–hop breaks and early hip–hop from the Wild Style era.
Between the hours of 4-6 pm: NHHM will present a live-streamed podcast via Rock The Bells, culminating in a ceremony inducting Wild Style Director Charlie Ahearn with cast members including Grandmaster Caz & The Cold Crush Brothers, Grand Wizzard Theodore & The Fantastic 5, Patti Astor and Breakdance icon, Crazy Legs, into NHHM’s Hall of Fame.
These legends will receive an award, custom NHHM jacket, fat lace hat, inductee medallions, commemorative cassette necklaces, and custom art by NHHM Creative Director Andy Katz and Photoshop Jedi.
NHHM Historian Jay Quan – a noted hip–hop historian, lecturer, narrator, and writer – will serve as emcee.
Adding to the excitement, NHHM will display a hand–drawn animation slide from the movie’s intro by Zephyr and Revolt donated by Charlie Ahearn, alongside the original amphitheater flyer from 1980, a rare Italian 1984 Wild Style movie poster and vintage articles from the movie’s original premiere.
“We couldn’t be more excited to be hosting the National Hip Hop Museum ‘s Induction ceremony at Five Points this year,” says Josh Kimberg, one of the founders of Five Points Festival. “The path of hip–hop and designer toys has been linked since the very beginning of the art toy scene, on this anniversary it’s time to honor that legacy.”
