June 27, 2012 marked The Illixer‘s premier event. It was held at Timbuktu and featured 11 unique Milwaukee talents. DJ Ty worked the one’s and two’s, keeping the atmosphere alive. King Kamonzi of the Zulu Nation was an entertaining host who kept things light-hearted but real. The audience was a little smaller than expected. However, they were energetic and showed all of the performers a lot of love and support. Also, the performers gave each other a lot of respect as well. So it was still an encouraging environment. The staff of Timbuktu were friendly and efficient. Everyone got their drinks and food in a timely fashion. The Blaqlizt Entertainment team spread themselves throughout the venue to help out, ensuring everything ran smoothly. And the performers showed up and showed out from beginning to end. Local photographer Steve White was on deck to capture it all. Things ran a little behind schedule but really took off once they got going. Check out a top 10 list of memorable points from the performances after the jump.

The following are photos from The Illixer‘s debut event which took place at Timbuktu on June 27. All photos are provided by Steve White and Dexter Koepp. They did a great job of capturing the evening. Enjoy!

Readers have been  seeing references to local venue Danny’s Lounge for a while now. So figured it was time to give them a little bit more insight on the place. Danny’s Lounge is a nice sized entertainment spot located on 1900 South 60th street in West Allis, WI. Every Wednesday night for a while now, they hold an open mic event. The event is put together by lovely local deejay/rapper/model Sushi Lor. Rappers sign up starting at 9pm and pay a small fee. Then around 11pm they are granted stage time for about two to three songs, depending on how many acts are actually scheduled to perform. The turn out usually ranges from modest to a packed house. Rappers from all different sides of town are present, along with their own support systems. The bar is open the whole night, offering pretty decent drink specials and there are pool tables for entertainment before the show starts. Recently, DJ Sushi Lor even added a cash incentive to the pot. At the end of the night, the best performer is awarded $50 and the opportunity to be the opening act at the next open mic. A little extra cash never hurt anybody, right?
