Tues, Feb 15, Busdriver
Blue Lamp, 9 p.m., call for cover
Sacramento, CA 95816
A few years ago, esteemed rhyme experimentalist Busdriver decided to abandon the safe abodes of West Coast freestylin’ for adventures in genre fucking. What followed was a pair of albums (RoadKill Overcoat and Jhelli Beam) where he splattered distinctive vocalese over astringent electronic beats—and a mix tape last year, Computer Cooties, where he sang, speed-rapped and hummed to tracks by Daedelus, Modeselektor and Sacramento’s Sister Crayon. No word on whether the latter will be onstage during Busdriver’s local appearance, or whether he will use the occasion to rehearse his new punk band, Physical Forms. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard, www.busdriversite.com.
