Warm Brew might not be your typical set of friends or rap group these days, but they are Red Bull Records’ first hip-hop artist, and they’re definitely the hometown favorites. At a time where everyone seems to be missing that G-Funk sound of the West Coast, here are three middle school friends bringing it straight to your doorstep. Their last jobs include slangin’ tamales and catering for Casablanca, but now their mission is proving to Red Bull Records and Dom Kennedy’s OPM label that the chance they took with Warm Brew was their best decision yet. And with the release of their latest EP Diagnosis, you could say Warm Brew has done just that.

5th Annual Folksgiving Dinner!

On Sunday, November 20th we held our 5th consecutive community dinner in Venice. It’s not just about giving back to the less fortunate, it’s about doing something positive in our neighborhood, and bringing everyone together to enjoy a meal and feel good about ourselves. Thank you to everyone that helps carry this tradition on, may it last forever.
