Purveyors of the Conscious Sound kicked off the fifth annual Maha Music Festival.

The day has begun!

Omaha hip-hop troupe Purveyors of the Conscious Sound kicked off Maha Music Festival today shortly afternoon.

About 50 people (a solid chunk of them photographers from various outlets – and some not) stood in the lawn to watch the group.

The two rappers and singer Liz Graham were pretty solid and can craft super-quick rhymes, though I though they were a little lacking the hooks/beats department. Still, they were really entertaining.

Rebecca Lowry from All Young Girls Are Machine Guns joined for one song, which was cool, and they finished with a pretty fun song called “Sugar Funk.”

As for the festival, everything has gone well so far. Fest organizers told me everything has gone according to plan so far, which is the best you can ask for.

It’s also a gorgeous day right now at Stinson Park.
