There’s no better way to end the summer and celebrate the long Labor Day weekend than with The Couch Sessions at Stay Gold: NYC. And this time around we are partnering withReebok Classic to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Reebok Classic Leather.
On Sunday September 1, 5pm-2am we continue our quest to find the perfect beat – the melding of electronic music with Hip Hop, Trap, Indie Rock, RnB, Synth and Pop. And as always, we’re Staying Gold… with a razor’s edge.
Between 5-9pm we bring you a show The Couch Sessions is best known for – a summer chill-out concert spotlighting the music industry’s most sought-out emerging artists in the genres of RnB and Reggae. For this portion of Stay Gold:NYC, set to perform are Brooklyn-based rock-reggae group Progress, Wax Poetic Artist and rising RnB star Kendra Morris, and electro soul/singer Laya LaRoche. Once you catch these acts perform, you’ll be at your laptop in no time looking to download their music.
From 9pm-2am, we transform the vibe of Stay Gold:NYC into a warehouse electronic, trap house, and rap jam. We break out the gold grills, 808s and hi-hats and turn the party up with Grand Rapid’s own producer extraordinaire Sango. Following Sango our New York City’s own The Underachievers will take the stage by storm and transport you to the next level. 2dopeboyz own Meka and Couch Sessions’ very own DJ Run P will keep the jam trill till the wee hours of the morning.
More than just a concert, Reebok and The Couch Sessions provides you with the complete experience. Adding on to Paperbox’s already mural art-filled backyard, famous graffiti artists Stash and Wane will debut their murals specifically made for Stay Gold NYC. And because we know you’ll want to keep your sneakers crispy for Stay Gold:NYC, Reebok is setting up a 1920s inspired free shoe shine booth.
Stay Gold:NYC is fully catered by Brown Butter NYC (official caterers for Polo Ralph Lauren, etc.). And to hold on to the last remnants of summer, Reebok is setting up a Harlem inspired Shaved Iced Cart to satisfy your sweet tooth. And to stay hydrated throughout the jam, the good people at Vita Coco will supply free coconut water as well as $5 Vita Coco infused chocolate, mango, and pineapple cocktails.
Stay Gold:NYC will be equipped with giveaways and contesting from the good folks at Rocksmith, Reebok and Jimmy Jazz.
Stay Gold:NYC will be held at The Paper Box – Brooklyn’s independent outdoor/indoor live music and art complex in Williamsburg BK. 3 blocks off the L Train Grand St. station.
