Don’t think AnimalXHouse forgot about Ohio. While the brand is currently expanding their presence in New York, they have some heat up their sleeves just in time for the summer.
The AnimalXHouse Summer Series will kick off on June 15th in Cleveland at the Grog Shop. Columbus’ Tae Fresh and Major Zoe, Cleveland acts Fly Tye, Freshie and Lo Life Lane, and Cincinnati’s Rarri are all set to shut down the Grog Shop. Sounds will be curated by DJ Corey Grand, ChrisMarsB and Chucky $upreme.
Ohio is a steaming hotbed of underground talent: no one knows this better than AnimalXHouse. Sted Lee, a long time AXH partner, is set to lead AXH Ohio’s operations. I spoke with Lee about the upcoming show and he had a lot to say. “The goal of the summer series is to shine light on some of the great talent that we have right here in Ohio. We want people to know more music than just what they hear on the radio.” Sted Lee also said something very profound, “… we have to respect and support our home grown artists before anyone else will”.
Do you want to hit the stage at the next AnimalXHouse Summer Series in July? Follow our Twitter, @AnimalXHouse, to stay updated on how you could perform.
We need all of Ohio to pull up for this event. This is something that we’ll look back on in 5-10 years and see how legendary it really was.
