Sports activities & Leisure Highlight – June 2021 #2 | Foster Garvey PC

  • After investing in a company based on a home water rowing machine, Jay-Z is among several celebrities investing in a company promoting a vertical climbing machine. Jay-Z is either optimistic about fitness equipment and technology for the home, or he’s very serious about preparing for an upcoming camping trip.
  • Jay-Z’s alum from Roc-A-Fella Records, Kanye West, caused a stir this week when he was spotted not only in a full mask over his head and face (at least he was told) but also in Nike sneakers – regardless of his Adidas advertising contract. Since his deal with Adidas likely contains wording prohibiting him from wearing his competitors’ clothing in public, it will be interesting to see if and how Adidas reacts and / or Kanye save face.
  • As the latest sign that the entertainment industry is embracing NFTs, the branding and merchandising arm of Universal Music Group, Bravado lived up to its name and signed a licensing agreement with the well-known digital art brand Ikonick.

Babe Club, A la Mids

At what may be the New Brookland Tavern’s biggest show since COVID-19, three groups show the power of their singers.

Columbia’s Rex Darling brings a similar instrumental clarity to songs that tend more towards chamber music intimacy, a perfect complement to Catherine Hunsinger’s expressive and sonorous voice. In between, the local vocal supergroup A La Mids Hunsinger unites with Cayla Fralick and Stagbriars Emily McCollum and underlines their radiant harmonies. Jody Jackson opens the 7pm concert on June 10th. Admission is $ 12 ($ 8 upfront). Learn more at newbrooklandtavern.com. JORDAN LAWRENCE
