SummerStage: The Bullitts / DJ Spinna / Screening: They Die By Dawn
Jun 21, 2015 @ 7:00 pm| Free
The Bullitts (Jeymes Samuel), is an English writer, director, singer-songwriter and music producer from London. Samuel has a cinematic element to his music and has accompanied most of his releases with short films. Samuel’s first album under the moniker The Bullitts is titled They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories and was released in July 2013. Samuel also worked alongside Baz Luhrmann and Jay Z on the music for the blockbuster The Great Gatsby, serving as the film’s Executive Music Consultant.
DJ Spinna is something of an anomaly in music: a humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. With a steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul, R&B and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) without any restraints.
With an all star cast including Erykah Badu as the infamous Stagecoach Mary, Giancarlo Esposito, Michael K. Williams, Nate Parker, Jesse Williams, Rosario Dawson, Isaiah Washington, Bokeem Woodbine, Harry Lennix and others, “They Die By Dawn” tells the fictional story of a showdown between real life Black historic cowboys.
