Snoop Dogg/Lion Is Playing the Fillmore on What Promises to Be the Blunted-est 4/20 Ever

As part of his coming-out tour, and only days before the release of his Diplo-produced reggae album, Snoop Lion (né Dogg) will be playing one of those intimate shows here in S.F. at the Fillmore. And because Snoop Lion loves weed, and San Francisco loves weed, Snoop has decided to come to San Francisco on World Weed Day -- aka April 20, aka 4/20, aka the best day in all of the year to see Snoop Dogg perform.

Curiously, it says right on the poster that this won't be just a Snoop Lion show -- which we'd have expected only days before the new identity-defining album arrives -- but a performance of the Doggfather's "classic smash hits." You should definitely expect some reggae in there, though.

This show will continue a run of high-priced, intimate San Francisco shows that always seem to go down around Coachella/major-release season. Tickets are $75 each and go on sale this Friday, April 12, at 10 a.m. Obviously, since no one doesn't want to be in the same room as Snoop Dogg/Lion puffing a blunt on 4/20, it will sell out quickly. You have been warned.

  • 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.'"
