Back at A3C last year I had a pretty brief conversation with Skyzoo about him coming to perform his first show in Los Angeles, and he basically said just try to get the promoters to work something out! Well apparently, things happen for a reason, and I guess the promoter gods were reading my mind, because all of a sudden a couple of weeks ago I got word that he’s coming out to perform (WHAAAAAATTT!!!!)!
This weekend, Los Angeles… you guys better show him some love and let the brother know that he definitely has fans out here! Opening acts include Foci (w/DJ Pops), Versis, Aspect One (special beat set), and a few others! Get there early as there will be a long line for this special show at Urban Underground!
This is definitely good news for Los Angeles! This year’s 2013 Red Bull Thre3Style event will be taking place at Sound Nightclub (formerly known as Las Palmas) this wednesday night. The event is FREE to the public, but if you want to get first priority, you MUST RSVP to get in!
After wednesday night, come back in April for the US National Finals that will also be taking place in Los Angeles! Save the date! In the meantime, make sure you check out the competition that will be taking place in Los Angeles & San Francisco! Unfortunately, it’s $15 to get in.
You see who’s on this flyer… all the 90s heads that we grew up to love (among others). Chuck D, who put this short tour together, will be bringing this large festive event to California next week!

….for hopefully two weeks. Word Is Bond has became a sponsor for the festival, and is sending me to Atlanta to cover it for three days. So I’ll be covering various things like panel discussions, meet-and-greets/in-store related events, performances, and backstage stuff. The rest of my time out of California will hopefully be spent in New York (but we’ll see if I get to cross that bridge). For now, it’s ATL on my schedule…
It’ll be my third trip outside of California, second time documented on here since my DC one.
This saturday, XZIBIT will be live at the Key Club, performing tracks from his recently released new album, Napalm. Pasadena-native FOCI will be sharing the stage alongside the legend with a few other guests. Right now, you can get half off on the tickets over at Pros & Cons if you purchase some merch from their shop! Otherwise, get your tickets now! Saturday is right around the corner…
Hurry up and cop that Napalm now!
This saturday, the Lyricist Lounge invades Downtown Los Angeles to bring you one hell of a show! Check out the lineup on who’s going to be performing, and purchase your tickets while they’re still available!
