Out of Line: Shasta Geaux Pop by Ayesha Jordan & Charlotte Brathwaite

Thursday, July 19, 2018
9 – 10pm
Location
On the High Line at 14th St.

If Millie Jackson, Roxanne Shante, OutKast and Monty Python had a baby in the year 3030 you’d get SHASTA GEAUX POP!

Shasta is celebrity. Shasta is the future and it’s time for her to take the party to new heights. This world-renowned icon is going to bring you a whole different kind of extravaganza. Completely uncensored and outrageously fabulous, come fall in line with Shasta and her rhymes while she tackles naughty topics and pays sonic homage to the classic era of Hip-Hop….old railroad tracks included.

Now in its third year, Out of Line presents a new set of arresting, intriguing, and playful performances by some of New York City’s most exciting contemporary artists.
