After mesmerizing the crowd at Red Palace, critically acclaimed DC artist Sherell Rowe returns to blow up the stage at DC9. And this time, she is bringing friends.
Join Sherell and her Dark Planet crew as they begin their takeover of the world, one nightclub at a time.
Sherell Rowe - With her reputation for edgy lyrics and a swagger that makes her male counterparts cry, there is no question that Sherell is the main attraction. Hot off the release of her first EP, Sherell is out to stun the audience by unveiling elaborate choreography and brand new tracks. Allow her to introduce her entourage...
Cyra – Following the release of her single “Booty Pop’n’ Everywhere,” the ambitious, young rapper has been turning heads in the DC area with her no-nonsense vocals and gripping hooks. Fresh on the scene, this is Cyra’s first showcase, making it a coming out party of sorts. Sherell couldn’t be more excited to unleash upon her fans the unstoppable musical force that is Cyra.
The Roll Wit US All Stars - Washington, DC natives Mr. Clif and Malik Starx, the Roll Wit Us All Stars are a rapidly rising act at the forefront of hip hop's underground and the life of the party. With a love of everything from electro to g-funk and all styles in between, the group brings a demonstrated excellence to the table with each performance. Having rocked stages with a range of industry veterans including Mos Def, Ras Kass, Maino and the Souls of Mischief, the group absolutely succeeds at the rarest of goals, of being everything to everyone. Both quick witted and possessing razor sharp flows, the duo has an onstage presence that reminds many of Outkast due to their lyrical delivery and ability to handle subjects that move the body, mind and soul. The Roll Wit Us All Stars are representative of classic party rap culture blended with the skill to take rap beyond all borders. They are, in two emcees, representatives of the best of the hip hop experience.
Atoms Apart - After almost a decade of touring and playing in the DMV area brothers Mike and Emil Favila, have brought their combined experience and love of music to Atoms Apart. With a mix of new wave, electronic music, rock and pop, their songs both challenge and draw you in. Atoms Apart are also performing as part of Sherell's backing band on guitar and drums.
And DJ sets by...
Lemz – A veteran of the Dark Planet family, Lemz has been working with Sherell and company since day one. Lemz specializes in spinning hard, nasty Electro, Progressive, and House tunes, while getting even the most seasoned partygoers lose their minds. In addition to leading banging parties, Lemz has begun producing his own original tracks, including Sherell’s “Jump Anthem.”
DJ MadScience – DJ MadScience, has become the personal creative outlet for Jesse Jackson, CEO and producer of Dark Planet Records. From his weekly residence at Cobalt nightclub, to the fraternities of Gettysburg College, DJ Madscience has been putting audiences into dance frenzies with his diverse sound, which he describes as “ADD on crack!”
