Black Cassidy was born in Houston, Texas with a passion and vision for his city. A creative serf with an insatiable duty to his community, Black began his event planning schemes by executioning elaborate New Years eve parties for friends and booking shows for numerous bands he played in such as ‘A Prototype called Device’ and ‘Some Birds.’ His events took place at numerous iconic venues located throughout Houston and rapidly gained recogition from his community for the quality of his shows. Throughout the years, he has been asked to collaborate with numerous entities like Generators Playground, Montrose Proper, Hue Mural Festival 2016, River Revival 2018 and Houstons Free Art Friday.
In 2015, the idea for Bambull Black began to stir. Frustrated by the blasé execution and quality of events he had been attending, Black wanted more for his community and decided he wanted to curate events with quality, relevancy and progressive artistry. Having seen similar desires in Dom Bam while working on previous projects together, they both decided they wanted to work together exclusively and form their own entity.
That same year, Black met Hannah Bull. She had recently moved downtown after graduating from college and the two met during the Montrose Pub Crawl at the expired venue, Montrose Proper. In that same year, they both began working at the same private school in South Houston. Black watched as Hannah threw multiple events at their school; the Talent Show, a series of dance recitals and she even organized a ‘School Extraveganza,’ bringing in various creatives in the community (such as Anat Ronen, Matt Fries, Scabz the Clown, Beta Theater) to give artist talks and talk about their creative endeavors. In 2016, Black (who was also a nominee) watched as Hannah put on her first community event ‘The Houston Music and Arts Hall of Fame’ with great success. Black and Dom then decided to recruit her to the team and the rest is history.
Black is also a muralist and commissioned artist in Houston, mostly known for his Wizard and Wolves relief mural at Moon Tower and his large-scale Christopher Walken mural at St. Arnolds Brewery.To see more of his art, follow him at @ohnohedint or view his website at ohnohedint.com.
