It's a big year for OutKast: the group is reuniting for the festival circuit, and working on two solo albums; meanwhile, Andre 3000 is appearing as the star in new Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side. As SPIN reports, that film is headed to South By Southwest, which means we finally have a clip to watch. Here's a minute and 20 seconds of Andre as Jimi talking to Imogen Poots (playing model and rockstar love interest Linda Keith) about the upcoming Monterey Pop Festival. Man, we cannot wait to see this movie:

What do you think? Can Threestacks summon Hendrix's famous shyness and modesty?

But maybe the real question is, how well can Andre play -- or appear to play -- guitar?

  • 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.'"
