Art of War feat. Ghostface Killah

The Art of War festival is something of a March Madness-style breakdance competition, with movers and shakers ascending up the bracket for the glory of a cash prize. Presented by the Urban Dance Educational Foundation, the gig champions b-boy culture — the arms-crossed, downrocking dance artists of hip-hop.

At midnight, Art of War shifts gears with a Chessboxin’ seminar from Wu Tang MVP Ghostface Killah. Since the pre-36 Chambers era of Staten Island Timbs and a Jason mask, Ghostface has been known for storytelling, a brash delivery and some of the cleanest bars of the Wu-Tang Clan. In February, Ghostface released Sour Soul, his most gripping work in some time. A collab with Canadian jazz/instrumental hip-hop trio Badbadnotgood, Sour Soul realizes Wu-Tang’s throwback soul textures with a nimble live band. $20-$25,  2pm-1am, Josabis, 17200 Tx-16, Helotes, (210) 372-9100
