Native Soul The Beginning from Teenage Dreams (Awesome Tapes from Africa) Add to Collection
CHIRP welcomes Death Grips to their show at Bottom Lounge this Tuesday, November 20. The band somehow parlayed their confrontational brand of punk-rap into a contract with Epic Records earlier this year, with whom they planned to release two albums in 2012. But plans changed when they leaked the second of those albums, NO LOVE DEEP WEB, via their own website in October. They have since been dropped from Epic, but have continued with their tour schedule.
Rapper MC Ride (aka Stefan Burnett) is joined by his production team onstage, Andy Morin and Zach Hill, on keyboards and drums. Not many production teams have the former drummer for Hella behind the kit, so their live act promises to live up to the visceral mania of their albums. Join us at Bottom Lounge to see them and New York rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco, who will open the show which starts at 9 PM. Go to bottomlounge.com for more info.
