Soul, Funk, R&B, & Hip-Hop

Syd the Kyd

When: Fri., April 5, 9 p.m. 2013

When the Odd Future hip-hop collective drops the beat, Syd the Kyd is on the decks. The petite tomboy (née Sydney Bennett) surprised many when she produced the gorgeous, neo-soul vocals on Odd Future R&B side project The Internet. Syd met Odd Future's foulmouthed ringleader Tyler, the Creator through her little brother, Taco Bennett, and she helped the collective record its debut mixtape. Since then, she's become the go-to producer for Odd Future rapper Mike G, in addition to her work on The Internet with producer Matt Martians. Syd comes to The New Parish (579 18th St., Oakland) on Friday, Apr. 5, as part of a special appearance for local arts and culture magazine Wine & Bowties, and editor Max Gibson said she'll spin "an eclectic mix of everything from soul and funk to trap, house, and hip-hop." Hip-hop producers/DJs Trev Case and Koslov will get the dance party started. 9 p.m., $10, $12. TheNewParish.com
