Just a reminder that tonight is the night! The Wildstyles exhibition is from 6pm till 11pm at Bar Vinyl Camden Town N1.
To promote the success of the Wildstyles exhibition, PYMCA has moved to a new, intimate location and will showcase our unique Hip Hop imagery from the last 25 years.
Classic tunes will be played by Hip Hop DJs as well as a performance by breakdancers, One Motion Crew. There will also be hip hop jewelry for sale.
