Eight Gigs: A Tribe Called Red
Fri., Sept. 30, 7:30 p.m., Sol Collective, $25
As native activists and allies unite to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, a Canadian deejay collective known as A Tribe Called Red is using its electronic music to combat the lingering effects of colonialism. Comprised of three deejays from Ontario’s indigenous reservations, the group is uniting all walks of native folk under a loose collective of activists and artists known as Halluci Nation. It’s an inclusiveness movement that rallies around like-mindedness rather than skin tone or tribe. The record We Are the Halluci Nation combines North American music with the glitch-step of EDM and trap music. 2574 21st Street, http://atribecalledred.com.
