After the success of last year’s Shady Records Pop-Up Museum and Slaughter House show in New York City, Brisk Bodega is back. This time Brisk partnered with Star Wars in celebration of the 3D re-release of Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace. The Brisk Bodega opened the second of their three Star War’s themed pop-up stores in New York on Thursday night, February 23. “The Cantina” was set up at 540 W. 21 Street in NYC. The event featured DJ sets by Just Blaze and DJ Soul with an opening set by NXNY as well as Brisk and Star Wars inspired artwork by Artek, Mark Dean Veca, Jasper Wong, Pose, Leo Eguiarte, Dual Forces, Eye One, and Tristan Easton. Earlier this month, Just Blaze hosted a similar set-up in LA and the third event will be held at SXSW in Austin on March 12 at the Molotov Lounge. All photos by Bernard Smalls.
