Aural Fixation Presents: The Academy Awards the Rep Yo Movie Edition
Your Saturday night alternative to typical ATL nightlife returns with Aural Fixation Presents: The Academy Awards: The Rep Yo Movie Edition! If you have ever been to an Aural Fixation then you know that what has made the show great is the talent that has graced the stage. We have had everyone from R&B Legend Tony Terry to Emmy Award Winning Poet Hank Stewart grace our stage. People like Sandy Redd, who was a finalist on The Voice, Trey Daniels, who is the saxophonist currently touring with Anita Baker, and Tony Award winning HBO Def Poet Georgia Me are also Aural Fixation Alumni who have wowed our audiences with their performances. Throughout our lives we have all had that one movie that we have watched so many times that we know ALL the words, ALL the songs, ALL the dance moves to the entire thing. So for this Aural Fixation we are paying homage to the movies, actors and actresses, and scenes that have impacted us over the years with the Academy Award Edition. Unlike most shows you may have attended, this will be a truly interactive experience. So we are looking for you to not only come prepared to enjoy a phenomenal show, but to participate and be a part of the show as well. The first way you can participate is to Rep Your Movie! Attendees are strongly encouraged to come to the event dressed in a look representative of your favorite movie. It can be a specific character like Scarface or it can be reminiscent of the time period like in moves like Harlem Nights and Grease. You can do it alone, or get our people together and do a group look like in Set It Off or.... Grease. The point is, whatever your movie come ready to represent. The one thing to keep in mind is that this is NOT a costume party. While there may be parts of your outfit that may require that element, the idea is that this is a celebration and representation of your favorite movie and movie characters. We will be awarding the best dressed male and best dressed female and have a RIP the RUNWAY portion to show the crowd your outfit. So come with your best... we are looking for the total package!! WELCOME BACK TO THE ACADEMY AWARDS AURAL FIXATION STYLE!!! History of the Show: Aural Fixation came about after its creator, Dichotomy, was told by various promoters and venue owners that there was not a big enough demand for poetry in Atlanta for it to be a featured event during the weekend. Tired of hearing this, he decided to create an event that would prove them wrong. Aural Fixation is a feature show that combines the arts of Spoken Word Poetry, Live Music, Live Art, Amazing Vocalists, and Musicians all sharing a single stage. The original purpose of the show was to take some of the nations best talent in each of these areas who may not have the noteriety they deserve and present them to an audience that not only may not be aware of them, but may not have been exposed to the art in the way they present it. The event has taken on a life of its own. Held at an upscale venue 595 Event Space, where a full dinner menu and stocked bar is available, attendees are encouraged to make a night of it and enjoy of evening of artistry, dinner, and dancing.
