Juvenile, Mystikal and Mannie Fresh announce shows for October

Tuesday, tickets went on sale for godfather of hip-hop Afrika Bambaataa’s return to the Howlin’ Wolf October 27th. On Friday, it was announced that that same long Halloween weekend (which is also, you know, the Voodoo Experience) will bring an October 29 show at the Maison on Frenchmen with the top three local-born hip-hop acts of the 90’s: Juvenile, Mystikal and Mannie Fresh.

On Friday, the folks behind the New Orleans Underground Hip-Hop Awards also announced the date for their second annual ceremony honoring the top talent in local lyricists and DJs, as well as promoters, producers and other contributors to the sound: the awards show will take place Saturday, October 8 at the House of Blues.

This year’s awards show will honor the lives of rappers Magnolia Shorty, Tim Smooth and Tre-8, as well as radio DJ AJ Appleberry, who passed away during the year since the inaugural event. At the 2010 awards ceremony, Magnolia Shorty, who was murdered in December of that year, took home the award for “Best Bounce Song.”

Tickets are available at for Afrika Bambaataa and Mannie Fresh, Juvenile and Mystikal.
