Hip-Hop/Rap
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Twenty years after its release, the Pharcyde's "Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde" remains a singular creative achievement that defies comparison to other hip-hop albums. It was one of a handful of records that gave the weirdos a seat at the table of gangsta-dominated West Coast hip-hop. It featured four young, spastic MCs in perfect balance with each other while barely in control of their imaginations. And musically, producer J-Sw!ft and the crew crafted a timeless blueprint for a jazzy mixture of sampling and live instruments. The album's big hit, "Passin' Me By," is perfection. The group has had a bumpy history since, suffering from the types of infighting seen in any rock 'n' roll biopic. But Fatlip and Slimkid3 are on the road performing "Bizarre Ride" in its entirety, accompanied by producers L.A. Jay and J-Sw!ft. and a multimedia Pharcyde retrospective.
