Hell Yes: OutKast Reuniting For Shows In 2014

Together again. As they should be.
  • Together again. As they should be.

After nearly 24 hours of excited blogger speculation about whether or not the rumors were too good to be true, Diddy's Revolt TV has confirmed that OutKast will be reuniting in 2014 for "performances across the U.S.," beginning with a headlining spot at Coachella.

Well, shit. This is the first time we've really felt like we had to go to Coachella.

It's been seven long years since André 3000 and Big Boi last made sweet sounds as a duo, which makes seven years since journalists -- like the sad yet hopeful children of divorced parents -- have been asking if and when they'll be getting back together, please. Not that Atlanta's finest haven't each been doing good things on their own. But it's been an entire decade since Speakerboxxx/The Love Below -- which means, among other things, that a) "Hey Ya" might be bearable to hear again, and b) they likely have more than enough new ideas to bounce off one another. Can a return to the studio be far behind?

[Note: That sentence was the most we have ever sounded like Us Weekly. Won't happen again.] [Also note: A friend just pointed that many teenagers in the year 2014 will likely not understand what "shake it like a Polaroid picture" even means.]

  • 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.'"
