Took some time out of the weekend to stop by the Amsterdam Bar and Hall to say Hi to Kyle Holder, drummer for General B and The Wiz.
I hadn't looked much into the event before going, but found they were opening for Heiruspecs (St. Paul native hip hop performers) and Jordan Looney. The night was dubbed the "Touch the Sun" Concert -- the 5th annual event supporting The Devon Smith Scholarship Foundation. After getting home late I pulled up some more info on Devon Smith. It was really cool to learn more about the foundation, and pretty amazing to see the generosity of everyone who put the event together.

"If there was one place where Devin Smith shined the brightest, it was on stage. To celebrate Devin’s passion for art and performance, the Touch the Sun Hip-Hop Show has become part of our annual fundraising events. This year, we are back at our original venue, where we held Touch The Sun our inaugural weekend, the Amsterdam Bar and Hall, who generously donated their Downtown St. Paul space to host a night of music in Devin’s honor. In addition to the Amsterdam donating their space, all of the musicians performing are donating their talent. We hope to see you there!"
