The Coolout 20th Anniversary

Celebrating 20 Years of Northwest Hip-Hop Television History

Coolout TV, the foundational source of Hip Hop and Urban Music/Arts on television in the Northwest will be celebrating it’s 20th year of existence this coming April 2, 2011 with a highly anticipated blowout event. Over the many years Coolout has been pivotal in exposing the best in Hip Hop music, dance and art locally, regionally and nationally, from Sir Mix-A-Lot to D.Black and Public Enemy to Mary J Blige and many others. Coolout frontman Georgio Brown invites all to attend the milestone event as this will be the last anniversary celebration until 2016, Coolout’s 25th year of life. The break will give Brown time to focus intensively on creating documentaries from the incalculably valuable footage he’s taken over the years. In the spirit of excitement about Coolout’s history and future, the evening will feature a knock-out roster of performances and entertainment that will be unveiled only during the celebration!
