Two geniuses come together for a downright gritty collaborative effort. Both Madlib and Freddie Gibbs have established themselves as leaders in their respective crafts and to see them tour together is a special if not utterly rare occurrence. They'll be celebrating their forthcoming album Piñata, and early arrival is highly recommended. Opening will be Lucki Ecks and the Impala Sound Champions.
Electronic music pioneer Dan Deacon stops through Subterranean to celebrate his latest album America. It's likely he'll be exploring new material as well, so expect to walk away with a few fresh tunes to hum. Early arrival is highly recommended.
In celebration of the documentary My Vinyl Weighs a Ton, Stones Throw artists and DJs Peanut Butter Wolf, J-Rocc, Jonwayne and KNX will be performing at the Empty Bottle. PBW and J-Rocc will keep the dance floor moving while Jonwayne handles the mic duties. It'll be a special night celebrating one of the most successful independent labels around.
Electronic production duo the Drum have reshaped the local scene in vibrant ways. They constantly push themselves in new directions, but what always remains at the heart is the groove. Add a dash of silky r&b and what you have is a slew of dance floor igniters. Night Terror and TALsounds open.
