Colorado Crush 2013: Schedule, lineup and all the party info for the fourth annual block party
Mark your calendar -- naw, scratch that -- don't mark it, clear it: On Saturday, September 7, Colorado Crush is going down once again. And from the sounds of it, the fourth edition of this annual hip-hop block party is going to be a block buster. Seriously. If you're an admirer of graf, this is the place to be. Along with more high profile graf writers painting, there's some local legends represented here. Add to that more battles and an array of performers, including a special Stay Tuned set featuring cats from the L.I.F.E. Crew. Should be dope. Even Mayor Hancock is slated to stop by. Keep reading for a full rundown of the lineup thus far, including info on the pre- and after parties.
