The ladies at B-Girl Manifesto have outdone themselves this time. The show Tuesday features headliners Tanya Morgan as well as Stacy Epps, Naima Jahmaal, Emoni Fela and Emperess. Couch Sessions faves DJ Eurok and Head Roc will also be at the event.

Sunday’s event will be off the hook with Julie Dexter and NICOLAY at 18th Street Lounge. There’s a lot of musical goodness sandwiched in between.

    And why is Tanya Morgan there, again? *confused*

    Tanya Morgan was there because they love women in hip hop and they named themsleves after a girl because of that. Plus, the fucking hot hip hop group.
