Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
16+ Unless Accompanied by a Guardian George Watsky is a rapper, writer and performer from San Francisco now living in Los Angeles. A versatile lyricist who switches between silly and serious, technically complex and simply heartfelt, George won the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Finals and the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. Immediate after, George appeared on the final season of "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry" on HBO in 2007 while himself a college Freshman and subsequently performed at over 150 universities across the country. Rapping all the while under the name 'Watsky,' George released a jazz-hip hop record with his band Invisible Inc in 2007 and the self-titled 'Watsky' in 2010, which peaked at #7 on the iTunes hip hop charts. In January 2011 George's fast rapping went viral and led to two appearances on the Ellen Show, a slot on Last Call with Carson Daly, and an exploding online profile. George has performed at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, the NAACP Image Awards on FOX, three times at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and has been featured in XXL, Billboard Magazine, and the New York Times Magazine. Watsky's social media presence made him one of only 23 artists dubbed by 'The Next Big Sound' as a 'Big Sound of 2011,' alongside Mac Miller, Kreayshawn and Skrillex.
