Hip-Hop Blows Up All Over GGP on August 31

Posted By on Thu, Aug 14, 2008 at 4:33 PM


Sunday, August 31, is turning out to be a huge day for hip-hop heads. DJ Kevvy Kev (of Stanford-based KZSU radio show "The Drum") is throwing a big-ass party in Golden Gate Park: His "Bang the Drum" festival sets up a stage in the park's Peacock Meadow, and on that stage will be Das EFX, Canibus, Dan the Automator, the East Flatbush Project, Peanut Butter Wolf, Rec League, Delinquent Monastery, Pam the Funkstress, the Oakland Faders DJ crew, and more. Meanwhile, across GGP at Elk Glen Cove, additional DJ crews are throwing their own BBQ party called "Doin' It In the Park", whereat DJs Apollo, Shortkut, Chuy Gomez, Sake One, Sir Tipp, Jah Yzer, T.D. Camp, Hakobo, and others spin hip-hop and reggae. So how much will all these jams cost your wallet? Nada. It's all free, all day, and all ages are welcome. — J. Graham

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
