Make some memories and enjoy a beautiful sunset evening on the edge of city and the sound at Beats on the Pier with LANGSTON!

The summer just ended, but it’s not too late to get out and dance into the sunset with Afrobeats and hip hop taking over the Waterfront.

On September 29th join Langston Seattle and Friends of the Waterfront for “Beats on the Pier.” We will have two of the dopest Dj’s across the diaspora spinning music from 5pm-8pm and delicious food from Soul Fusion and the drinks provided by Brown Liquor Cocktails. Seattle born and raised JusMoni, aka Moni Tep, is a mother, singer/songwriter, and founding member of Sway and Swoon DJ Collective. DJ Quins is known for delivering unique mixing style and music selection. Quins builds connections in different communities through music.

Langston’s mission is to strengthen and advance our community through Black arts and culture. Our vision is to Cultivate Black Brilliance. Come and be brilliant with us at “Beats on the Pier.”
