This event is the highly demanded follow up to last August's Reece Q CD release party at Dub Land Underground.

All three of these guys will be lined up at the booth downstairs waiting to design your hats, be sure to tip these guys!
Get Fresh Gear!
Eknomix Clothing will be setting up the booth upstairs and giving away free gear during Reece Q's set. With all the talent performing, you'll be sure to stick around for that and get your fall wardrobe on.
As with every ACT:LIVE event we strive to bring you a visual experience to take home with you. Last time it was with the art of Downer on the stage, creating an urban graffiti scene that took up the entire stage.
Now, we bring you Nicholas Baish. Nicholas is a local animator who will be projecting animations, stills and video anarchy across the entire stage at Dub Land. We are whiting out the back of the stage from corner to corner. Sick, right?
