Mission Creek Duos:
A Performance by Billy Dean Thomas
A Virtual Sample of One of America's Great Arts Festivals
Mission Creek Festival returns virtually April 29-30 with DUOS. The festival features musicians and writers performing their work and discussing the creative process through one-on-one conversations. We’re happy to share samples from three virtual performances from Mission Creek artists.
Up first is Billy Dean Thomas, AKA “The Queer B.I.G,” a hip-hop recording artist and producer born and raised in Harlem, but currently living in Boston. Billy Dean challenges the music industry with quick-witted punchlines that highlight intersectional feminism, social justice, and growing up in a gentrified city. To watch the entire event, in which Billy Dean is paired in performance and conversation with Kiese Laymon, visit Mission Creek Festival to sign up.
