For All-Star Week, baseball became the intersection of art, fashion, and music thanks to Major League Baseball’s most ambitious event MLB Assembly. The nearly week-long pop-up in Washington D.C. brought in an impressive roster of artists, designers, fashion brands, athletes and delicious treats.
For this episode of The Review, host Noah Thomas trips down to the District Wharf Pier to experience the event first hand. To kick things off, Noah sits down with Sports Illustrated cover model Danielle Herrington to discuss the intersection between fashion and sports before customizing her very own Levi’s denim jacket.
Speaking of Levi’s, many artists were in attendance also helping customize jackets with patches and screen printing. Noah caught up with legends Futura & Stash, No Kings Collective, and rising star Skyler Grey to get their reactions of the pop-up event, the motivations behind their work, and to take a look at the signature mural’s each artist created at Assembly.
As the artists painted, customized, and created throughout the weekend, plenty of musicians and DJ’s came through to bring the jams. D.C.’s finest Wale gave a must-see performance on the pier and an interview with Noah to discuss the significance of having All-Star week in his hometown. DJ Jazzy Jeff rocked the turntable among other lit DJ sets from Kitty Kash, Angel & Dren, and more. Lastly, BlocBoy JB closed out Assembly with a bang, performing his hit singles “Look Alive” and “Rover 2.0.”
