HIP-HOP BLUES | G Love and Special Sauce

by

comment

The blues and hip-hop; two genres that often elude white artists. They are both so steeped in the black experience that to be white and perform them tends to threaten that artist's legitimacy and credibility. Not G Love. This Philadelphia native has taken down home Delta blues and given it hip-hop jump and bravado. The resulting strain is both infectious and liberating to the music and to the artists in his pioneering wake.

G Love and Special Sauce will perform with Matt Costa on Sunday, March 15, at Anthology, 336 East Avenue. 8 p.m. $25-$28. ticketfly.com; townballroom.com.
