β€’ How does one get involved on an artist or volunteer level?

Intrinsic Nation's goal is to help an emerging community grow between groups full of like-minded people that we ultimately wish to bring together with music. Intrinsic Nation (Tribal Nation and Intrinsic Productions's lovechild) started putting on shows in various niches because we found music we identified with that maybe wasn't being given the attention that it deserves, and we want to bring our own unique offerings to the table while uniting a unique city-wide community.

This is EVERYONE'S movement- safety and inclusion are of utmost importance. We strive to attract a group of conscious, progressive individuals and have many strategies in place to both take care of and protect our community with harm reduction. Should you ever experience any issues at an event: tell a staff member, a crew member, or anyone within the organization so that the situation may be handled properly and compassionately in order to maintain the beautiful experience we intend you to have. We are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

πŸ”πŸ”So how do our shows work then for artists? πŸ”ŽπŸ”Ž
β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ We book all shows with 1-8 local acts β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’
βœ”οΈWe book artists based on their message/vibe
βœ”οΈWe book artists based on if their quality level ️
βœ”οΈWe book artists based on if their style fits the show️
βœ”οΈWe book artists based on community contribution
βœ”οΈWe book artists based on reputation as a professional

❌ We do not select artists based on ticket sales, however we do expect artist to promote the show and bring a crowd in the best interest of the show
❌ We do not select artist based on popularity
❌ We do not book artists with violent histories
❌ We do not tolerate unpreparedness. Load in & Soundcheck are mandatory. The audience came to see a show, and we plan to give it to them at top quality.
❌ We do not book artists that disrespect Bar Staff, Stage/Technical or Patrons under any circumstances. There is no such thing as «I had a bad night» & Repeat offenders will be banned permanently.


😡😡😡 NEW 😡😡😡
MC's will have a chance to compete in 4 Bar freestyles back and forth. Each round is worth $5.00 & any MC or crowd member may participate. Judges will choose who gets the point each round.
At the end of the battle, the points are totaled up. The loser pays the difference in points x $5.00.
β€’ β€’ MC's may choose to compete in a 'compliment battle' if both parties agree β€’ β€’

Poor sportsmanship, sore losers and post-animosity will not be tolerated. This is an art (like boxing- with words!) and all opponents show each other respect and dignity outside of the ring. Booing is never tolerated or acceptable.

πŸ˜ΉπŸ˜»πŸ˜ΌπŸ˜½πŸ™€πŸ˜ΏBattle Etiquette😺😸😹😻😼😽
We will regularly hold freestyle/open cyphers at the beginning of the night. There will be no Β«booingΒ» only positive reinforcement for our growing MC's. The MC's who take to this stage may be veterans and happy to set the night off positively, or they may be new comers looking to hone their skills. Either way this is a positive environment at all times.


🌞🌞#IntrinsicForecast 🌞🌞
Internationally acclaimed lyricist and hip hop aficionado Lock Smith delivers a healthy blend of complex poetry through impressive rhythmic structures while humbly holding the crowd in the palm of his hand. Junk (My Name Is Junk) from the SDK record label brings fourth one of the most ferocious freestyle levels to be seen while navigating a wide variety of styles. This is a night of real MC's.

πŸ‘£#IntrinsicSpiritJourney #GuideOfSynchronicity πŸ‘£
Our setlist takes you a trip from an open public freestyle / cypher / beat box. We show respect to the rising artists in this city who are pushing forward with their craft- your best friend may be a poet and in you in fact don't know it! We provide a platform to the MC's who already have earned their spot as solid contenders of the city. This a community of conscious-minded misfits who ultimately share a common understanding and respect for the culture that is music:
