Mos Def Adds Oakland Date

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 10:14 AM


Tickets are almost gone for the September 3 Mos Def/ Erykah Badu show at Davies Symphony Hall--they sold like the proverbial hotcakes. But fear not, O fans of the Mighty Mos. A second date, September 4, has been added at Oakland's historic Paramount Theater, giving Def disciples an additional opportunity to catch the man about whom Esquire raved "there is no better lyricist... in music. Not hip-hop. Music." Preview tracks from Mos' new album The Ecstatic can be heard here and more info is here.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, but if you click here and anter the password "Ankh" you can scoop presales today.

  • 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.'"
