Nate “Diggity” Johnson’s 30th Birthday

While plenty of people are content sitting on the couch watching Ace of Cakes, Seattle has its own crew of Cake Bosses: marketed by Nate “Diggity” Johnson, House of Cake is the local outfit responsible for extraordinary greenroom and birthday edible creations. And what better way to ring in Johnson's 30th birthday than with a benefit aiming to revive the mourned SuperSonics franchise—complete with sets from Seattle expat street-rapper Avatar Young Blaze, Dyme Def’s Brainstorm and momentum-gainer Eighty4 Fly. The use of the phrase “charity benefit” might be a little loose in this instance, but furthering the momentum of Sonicsgate—Sports Illustrated’s “Most Persuasive Grassroots Flick of 2009”—is as noble a goal as any.
