The Queen Sweet 16 is almost here. Two weeks to go and boy are we excited. This year will feature b-girls from Japan, Germany, Spain, China, UK, Chicago, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and of course, Seattle. J-kay 47 and Anna Banana (Massive Monkees), have been confirmed for judging. Also featured will be a 4 vs 4 open bracket for any b-girls or b-boys that want to showcase their talent. Winners of the 4 v 4 will receive a top 8 advance for the 2014 Northwest Sweet 16, plus cash and prizes.
Queen Sweet 16 brackets to be released later on this week. Stay tuned for more info, and click HERE to visit the event page.
The awesome people at the Chinatown International District invited us to create a battle for their Night Market. We’ve worked with them in the past and have had nothing but good experiences, so we gladly accepted. The concept is simple; invite 8 deserving crews from the Northwest, and pit them against each other for cash and prizes. 2013 will be our first year with this concept, and we hope to make it an ongoing event.
The event is free, please come and enjoy the dancing, and stay for the food.
We would like to thank everyone who showed up for Breaking the Silence 2013. The battle was AWESOME with hype battles, great energy, and our first ever Power King Exhibition. Big ups to Record Junkies for taking the championship and Road Trip Massacre for taking second place. Marks Iller from Filthee Feet with the King of the Hill Championship, Gully from Massive Monkees for taking 2nd place. Last but not least Akhang from Def Con 5 for becoming our first ever Power King Champion.
Other notables from the night included Break Tough and Wizards and DRS showing incredibly good form, Fishy in the Power King Exhibition showing everyone some insane blow ups, and Buckshot and Fredo in the King of the Hill battle with truly unique styles.
