A number of Newark art spaces will invite locals to exhibit openings and closings, performances, and artist talks this upcoming Saturday, April 1st, as they throw open their doors for Spring Open Studios events.
For the past few weeks on Instagram, All Star Barbershop and 211 Media Group have been inviting the barber shop’s customers to get free New Jersey Devils hockey tickets along with their haircuts.
And 211’s Doitall Kelly, who is one-third of the hip hop group Lords of the Underground, recently took a group of Newark and East Orange elementary school students to see a Devils hockey game. That’s Doitall and his group on the lower left.
(For our part, BrickCityLive.com gave away four free tickets for the March 16th game versus the Philadelphia Flyers.)
Happy Friday Newark! Enter to win 4 tickets close to the ice, valued at nearly $800 dollars, to March 16th’s New Jersey Devils game versus the Philadelphia Flyers at Prudential Center by answering this trivia question: * In what season did the Devils last wear their green and red jerseys? * Visit brickc.it/devils2017stpats (link in bio) to answer by Tuesday, March 14th at 10 a.m. The winner will be announced on Tue 3/14 at 1 p.m. #newarknj #downtownnewark #nhl #njdevils #entertowin #prudentialcenter #prucenter
It’s all a part of the Prudential Center and Devils’ effort to bring more community members out to Devils hockey games, under the leadership of Chief Marketing Officer for both the arena and the Devils, Dan Cherry III.
Back in August of 2016, Dan told us he would be innovative about his approach to bringing more locals out to Prudential Center to see the game. In engaging venues like barbershops and tastemakers like Doitall, Cherry and his team have made good on that pledge.
With the season winding down, Doitall invited his Instagram followers to “come party with us to close the season out!” with free tickets to the Devils game versus the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, April 6th. According to his Instagram video, those interested can pick up tickets from All Star Barbershop at 522 Central Avenue in Newark (or just send Doitall a direct message) to collect the free tickets while they last.
Check out Doitall’s full video below:

At NJPAC, the 30 days of April are filled with a kind of arts sampler – classical music, jazz, dance, family shows and more – to entertain and captivate audiences.
