Sure, you may be thinking of Dec. 30 as a day of rest before you party balls on New Year’s Eve. However, resistance never takes a day off, and neither should you! Head down to Blue Lamp on NYEE for an awesome hip-hop show that just happens to be for a good cause. Lil Marvaless, Charlie Muscle, CB, Dave Brrazey and M’ster Lewis make up a stacked bill of hip-hop artists who will be tearing up the mic. Your entrance fee of $10 will go to benefit Black Lives Matter Sacramento. Enjoying a group of talented performers while supporting social equality sounds pretty awesome to us, so head to Blue Lamp on Dec. 30 at 9 p.m. and show your support! As the event’s Facebook page puts it, “Can’t have nothin’ half assed when it comes to Black liberation.” For more info, go to
