Bulldog B-Boy Battle 

Friday, April 11, and Sunday, April 13, at Abe & Jake's Landing.

What breed of bulldog has multiple heads and knows how to do the bunny hop and the crab walk? The third Bulldog B-Boy Battle, of course. DJ-ing, rapping and beat making are well-known facets of hip-hop culture, but elements such as breakdancing tend to get overlooked. Downplay's third hip-hop dance competition should be its largest yet, taking place over two nights and featuring the cream of the national B-boy and B-girl contingents. Legendary California B-boy Paulskee (pictured) will host, and DJs Platinum and SceneBooster SoundSystem (Josh Powers) will be on hand to spin records as the hoofers worm and windmill. The battles offer one-on-one as well as crew-on-crew contests, with winners advancing to the all-ages finals on the second evening. Expect fierce but fun competition and a knockout exhibition from Lawrence's Buggin' Out Crew, whose gyrating body contortions have been turning heads at rap shows for many moons.
