The Grouch

When: Thu., Aug. 12, 9 p.m. 2010

Few hip-hop crews house as many endearing personalities as The Living Legends, that ragtag band from Oakland whose members eventually moved down south to make it big. Despite all their subsequent fortunes ñ international tours, tracks for a spate of Tony Hawk video games, and a few sleeper hits ñ these emcees have never forgotten their hometown. Living Legends rapper The Grouch returns to the East Bay on Thursday, Aug. 12, for a solo show at Shattuck Down Low (2284 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley). Known for sticking by his principles (he eats a vegetarian diet and drives a bio-diesel Ford F-350), the Grouch is actually a lot more staid and soft-spoken than his stage name implies. As a rapper, though, heÕs formidable. 9 p.m., $12-$15. ShattuckDownLow.com
