Diamond Black Hearted Boy and Friends Rock Like the Spice

Chino Amobi, polymath extraordinaire. The artist who's work is currently hanging in Like the Spice's main gallery is also an established electronic musician, Diamond Black Hearted Boy. He performed at the gallery on Friday night in conjunction with the opening of To Whom is May Concern. Not only did Chino bring his glitchy, sample-filled music (as well as a killer outfit), but he brought his musician friends as well. Electro duo FOLLOWER, beat-master Ghetto Caviar, and eloquent hip hop artist Devin Kkenny gave explosive performances in turn. Surrounded by Amobi's neon artworks, show-goers rocked out to the equally electric music. The gallery became a full-fledged crucible for young cutting edge artists working in both visual and auditory media, and an awesome party.
