Best Comeback Club Event: Broke & Boujee

Staff Pick

Somewhere between Atlanta’s done-to-death black Hollywood vibe and the neo-boho set, Fadia Kader carved out a niche where the stepkids of the scene could ball like Cinderella. BROKE & BOUJEE, which was held monthly at the Royal, quickly became ground zero for Atlanta’s aspirational underground (Battery 5) and pop elite (Keri Hilson & the Clutch). URB magazine even plugged the party in its annual Next 100 issue. But when Kader turned off the lights in March, a lot of people got stuck holding their slippers. It felt like the end of an era. Then Broke & Boujee triumphantly returned in July at the Five Spot in Lit-tle Five Points. Resident paparazzo Hannibal Matthews set up shop with his lights and camera to document the action while buzz-worthy Atlanta MCs including the Kader-managed duo Proton moved the crowd. The four-month hiatus reminded everybody, including Kader, that as fleeting as fairy tales may be, sequels draw major box office numbers. www.myspace.com/brokeboujee.
