The Pharcyde

When: Sat., Jan. 6, 7:30 & 9:30 p.m. 2018

Six months after the Los Angeles riots, The Pharcyde exploded out of the ’90s South Central hip-hop scene with their first album, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde. It went gold and became an instant classic on the back of their first single, “Passin’ Me By,” offering an alternative to the gangsta rap that’d taken over the country’s radio waves. Twenty-five years, three albums, and too many side acts and solo releases to name here, two of the original four, Imani and Bootie Brown, are still bringing their eclectic mix of dance, acid jazz, trip-hop, and fluidly-spit sleight-of-hand.
