On the Fly for Oct. 25, 2012

October has been chock full of local breast cancer awareness events, but here’s one with a different twist: Local hip-hop artist Richard “Decm” Crout is hosting the Beat Box Battle 2 Beat Breast Cancer on Friday at Kono Lounge, featuring at least a dozen beat-boxers from as far away as New York and New Jersey, and 2011 American Beat Box Championship winner Jflo will serve as a judge. Beat boxing – in case you’ve been under a rock since the dawn of hip-hop – is a vocal technique involving the replication of drums, beats, percussion and other instruments using the mouth, lips, tongue and voice. Crout, whose stage name is pronounced “Deck ‘em,” specializes in beat boxing and has personally been affected by breast cancer because his mother died of the disease last year, and two of his aunts are also cancer victims. The event is from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and proceeds will benefit a local woman battling cancer, Crout said. There is no cover charge, but donations will be accepted at the door. Kono Lounge is at 1901 N. Kings Highway, Myrtle Beach. Call 446-6552.
