On Thursday, June 23rd, head on over to the Galapagos Art Space for The Run It Back! Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament & Hip-Hop Showcase. The brainchild of MC/radio personality Varyus Waise, this unique fundraiser features a tournament for the recently released, long-awaited video game Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and will include live musical performances from the best MCs in New York City’s underground hip-hop scene.
Run It Back! aims to raise awareness and support for Homes for the Homeless, who provide homeless families with the opportunities and support necessary to move out of shelters and live independently.
Music will be provided by DJ Vega, and the list of live performers include Sir SoSoon, Jesse Abraham, O.I.S.D. and Warren Britt. The event will be hosted by WBAI FM’s Tasty Keish.
It promises to be an evening of fun and entertainment, and they’ll be serving up Marvel vs. Capcom themed cocktails as well. (Hmmm, wonder if they’ll have a drink called the Hadouken.)
