While it was getting pretty cold outside Marmalade on Saturday night, Che Bong got a warm reception during a listening party for his impressive Sleeping While You're Awake debut CD.
The evening included a few low-key performances as well as a screening of the Hussain Sola-directed “Okay” video, which you can watch below.
It was also a family affair, with the hip-hop artist’s mom in attendance and an evening-closing rap number written and performed by Sound Powered Engine label founder Gary Vanderpool’s pre-teen kids.
Next up, look for a full Che Bong album-release show at the Black Sheep on Dec. 18.
