ooh tribute show flyerby Petula Caesar

The memory of the lifeforce that was OOH/Yo Slick/Derrick Jones on this earthly plane has been celebrated in almost every way imaginable — through his memorial service, through the endless tributes on social media, through gatherings big and small, through groups of friends and fans getting together to talk about this brother, sharing their memories of him. The only thing left to do was a full-blown concert as tribute, and that is happening tonight at his alma mater, Coppin State University. located at 2500 W. North Avenue in Baltimore. The event will be held in the James Weldon Johnson Auditorium.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. All proceeds will benefit the #SaveADopeBoy campaign and the Coppin State University Alumni Association. Doors open at 6 p.m., and I’m fully expecting a packed house, so I don’t recommend the super  C P-time option if you’re planning to attend.
