The Space Rap Rodeo with Sky Daddy & The Milky Bar Kid
Joint EP launch, hip-hop showcase & freestyle cypher.
Sat April 16th 8pm
Cactus Room, 614 High St, Thornbury
@user.name.unknown.jason @dillydave @rhath_music @o.h.k.i
@kudostunes

As the eternal forces of our galaxy clash in a cascade of cosmic collision, the dust settles on a patch of red dirt named Earth. The Sky Daddy has been observing humanities movements, taking note of the discrepancies

At the end of times, as the West becomes more wild and uncertain, there is only one event that can properly see us through to the end. Folk of the free world, Vibe Union Presents โ€œSky Daddy and The Milkybar Kid at The Space Rap Rodeoโ€, the last chance we have to heal and unite the wild west and the world as we know it.

The Space Rap Rodeo is a joint EP launch from UserNameUnknown & Dilly Dave with each project having been produced and recorded by Rhath. To celebrate the release of these two new projects, Vibe Union is hosting this showcase
