Big Boi's Day in the Bay: Apple, Twitter, and Popeye's Chicken

Posted By on Thu, Nov 8, 2012 at 8:41 AM


Daddy Fat Sacks, aka Big Boi, aka one-half of OutKast, was in the Bay Area yesterday -- and because the Bay Area is what it is, we can pretty much follow his day on Twitter. In fact it looks like the occasion for Mr. Patton's visit was a pair of visits to two Bay Area tech giants: Apple first, for which he played a private showcase at Silicon Valley Athletic Club. Then to Twitter in S.F., where the Atlanta rapper gave a talk and discussed his new album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumours, which is out Dec. 12.

What then? Well according to the keen-eyed folks at Haighteration, Big Boi asked a Twitter employee for directions to the nearest Popeye's Chicken. Having received guidance to the Divsadero location, he racked up a $72.34 tab buying food for his crew before flying out of town late last night. Check out Big Boi's day in the Bay Area yesterday via Tweets and Tumblr photos: Then, a few Tweets later:

Later in the day, from a Twitter employee: And from Daddy Fat Sacks himself:
$72.34 is a lot of Popeye's chicken! Hope he got plenty of biscuts, too, 'cause damn those Popeye's biscuits are good. [H/t to Haighteration. We owe ya a drumstick or two.] -- @iPORT

  • 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.'"
