Best of the East Bay Party
Mainstage Band Preview 

Fri., Aug. 6 2010

The East Bay Express is throwing the baddest party in the East Bay on Friday, August 6 at Jack London Square, and each week we've been featuring one of the bands you'll get to experience on the main stage.

This week's (final!) spotlight: The Mighty Underdogs
Our Main Stage headliner The Mighty Underdogs are a sort of rap supergroup. But unlike most supergroups, this one is actually kind of super. Featuring Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Lateef the Truth Speaker (Latyrx), and Headnodic of the Crown City Rockers. The group began with Lateef choosing tracks for his upcoming album, and finding that he liked enough Headnodic-produced tracks to make an entire album. Gift of Gab and Lateef decided it was time to pursue a long-planned collaboration, and The Mighty Underdogs was formed.

The Mighty Underdogs now has an EP (The Prelude) and a full-length (Dropping Science Fiction) under their belts. Dropping Science Fiction features some of the top names in rap and hip hop, including DJ Shadow, Mr. Lif, Akrobatik, Chali 2na, and Julian and Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley.

Listen to some tracks and watch their videos at the band's MySpace page.

Now that you've read about all the musical acts, go see them LIVE THIS FRIDAY!
