Conquest Presents Blue Scholars w/ Don't Talk to the Cops & Brothers From Another Thurs November 29, 2012 Wild Buffalo 21+ $17 adv
Seattle-based hip-hop duo Blue Scholars will follow up on their successful 2011 national tour with a dozen shows on the West Coast, Midwest and East Coast this fall. The #TOWNALLDAY Tour, named for the infectious refrain of their hit song celebrating the city of Seattle, "Slick Watts," starts in the Pacific Northwest at the end of November and continues down the coast and across the country through mid-December. The tour includes stops at The Fillmore in San Francisco, Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Troubadour in LA, New York's Bowery Ballroom, and a hometown show at The Showbox at the Market in Seattle, WA. After releasing their third full-length album Cinemetropolis last year via a wildly successful fanpowered Kickstarter campaign, Blue Scholars took to the road last year with LA rapper Bambu.
This time around, Blue Scholars will bring an exciting multimedia show featuring the short films and animations that grew from the Cinemetropolis project, fan-favorite songs from their extensive catalogue, as well as new work performed for the very first time showcasing the Scholars' signature balance of energy, wit, intellect and social critique. One featured song will be their latest track "May Day," released as a free download this summer, in which MC Geo offers uncompromising look at Seattle's recent spike in youth gun violence over the intricate, bass-heavy compositions of DJ Sabzi.
Joining Blue Scholars on tour are Brothers From Another, a young, charismatic rap duo from Seattle that has garnered considerable attention in the city with their fresh, genuine live show.
