February has always been a cool month. For the past few years, as I mark another 365 in my own life, I have had the pleasure of simultaneously celebrating the anniversary of The Waxaholics.
This article began with every intention of explaining who The Waxaholics are and what they do in-line with an interview and some pictures. Easy, right? As I typed and backspaced “Born February 12, 2012..” “In Houston, Texas...” and so on and so forth, a few times, I realized that effectively or even accurately describing The Waxaholics is nearly impossible.
To me, The Waxaholics are family.
A friend introduced me to them at an all vinyl Outkast tribute at Double Cross Lounge. Not long after, I celebrated my birthday at Alley Kat Bar & Lounge which The Waxaholics had just made their Thursday night home; I found out we shared a birthday, Wax founder DJ Big Reeks asked me what my purpose was and now here we are. Through building professionally, community wise and personally, The Waxaholics are an undeniable force of genuinely good, dope things. You’d be hard pressed to find a group of guys like The Waxaholics, anywhere. Musically, they’re genius. Creatively, unmatched. And as sorry as they can be sometimes they’re the some of the dopest people in the world. Also they don’t judge me when I act a complete ass in public so, what else do I need to say?
While The Waxaholics are comprised of a core group, we are as fluid in membership as we are in life. Anybody who finds themselves engaged in anything The Waxaholics do is by nature, a Waxaholic. Instead of an introduction to The Waxaholics through my own limited perspective, I wanted to share a more meaningful look at The Waxaholics.
Tomorrow The Waxaholics will be celebrating anniversary number six. Today and tomorrow, in appreciation and support of The Waxaholics, we will be sharing a look at The Waxaholics movement that includes photos, videos, stories and personal testimonies from the extended Waxaholics family.
Here is to #SixYearsOfWax, and many more!
Tomorrow we will have more stories, experiences and more to share.
And tomorrow night at Alley Kat, The Waxaholics will be celebrating anniversary number six.
See you there!
