BASIC Urban Kitchen + Bar Presents GRAFFITI: Tuesday Night Series Devoted to Urban Art, Music, Fashion and Visual Media from Thriving, Local Talent. GRAFFITI—an ongoing event featuring interactive art and music demonstrations from San Diego’s most creative talent. BASIC is a 5,000 square foot lounge and restaurant, converted from an authentic 1912 warehouse. The original brick walls are still intact, along with raw design elements to convey an industrial, street- inspired atmosphere. To produce GRAFFITI, BASIC has paired up with Schugariver, a local promotions company specializing in eclectic artist development. In addition to stunning visual presentations in the form of street art, urban fashion shows, comic animation, burlesque performances, tattoo art demonstrations, and documentary screenings from local filmmakers—GRAFFITI creates the ultimate urban event with live DJ’s spinning up an eclectic array of beats every Tuesday night. Resident talent Shane Baker, Johnny Tran and Schugar, share the stage with guest DJ’s to highlight the hottest in electro, garage, hip hop, funk, disco and freestyle throughout the evening. BASIC is one of the few spots downtown to offer late night dining, with a kitchen serving up thin crusted, brick oven New Haven pizza’s until 2 am. New guests and regulars alike indulge in everything from a traditional pepperoni pizza to signature toppings like fried eggplant, broccoli or mashed potatoes. The BASIC salad is the other contender on the menu: a sumptuous blend of mixed greens, sliced pears, candied walnuts, and gorgonzola served with a light vinaigrette. Every Tuesday evening starting at 8pm.
