Murs and Dee-1 come to the West Coast

Definitely a show worth checking out if  it’s coming to a town near you. Murs will give a dope performance and I’ve wanted to see Dee-1 ever since I sat with him at the “From the Blocks to Blogs” panel at SXSW, stand up dude.

Agreed! “Bring G Funk Back” by Omar Aura

Omar Aura has brought back a flavor we’ve been missing from the hip-hop scene, they’re the beats we grew up with, the tracks we were raised on, the era of creation… the “G Funk” sound. In the track “Bring G Funk Back”, Omar Aura does a fascinating job of recreating that familiar sound  that you can bump over and over again. His talents as a rapper and performer are greatly demonstrated in this video.

2012 Brings Sublime with Rome and Everlast to Fresno

The spirit of Bradley Nowell (February 22, 1968 – May 25, 1996) will wander the halls of Fresno’s Rainbow Ballroom this March. Rome Ramirez, singer/guitarist out of Freemont, CA., has since replaced legendary Nowell in what is now Sublime with Rome. Songs like “Badfish”, “What I’ve Got”, and “Doin Time” made Sublime know worldwide. Sublime with Rome will be performing these older songs as well as new songs like, “Take it or Leave it” and “Panic”, March 13.

House of Pain may have been the first rap album I ever owned, which may also be true for some of our enthusiasts out there if you were born in the early 80’s. Everlast, an original member of House of Pain, still rocks hard with his self titled band. His most recent songs include “I get by” and “The Rain”. He will join Sublime with Rome at the Rainbow Ballroom come March.

Here’s what you can expect…

California Galaxy putting Fresno on the map

I think we can all admit that the hip-hop scene has been lacking some originality lately, luckily Fresno is digging hip-hop out of that ditch. More specifically the ingenious Bravo Diablo (@bravodiablo) and talented Halo the Human (@HALOtheHUMAN), have come together to create Fresno’s freshest duo, California Galaxy. These two Central Valley artists have combined forces to bring you a bona fide, genuine expression of California Rap.
Live Music City Blog is happy to bring you the first of many videos to come by California Galaxy.
“New Bitches” features the gifted Omar Aura (@TheAuradon), B. Free, and produced by ATG.
I think we can all relate to wanting something new in our lives… especially the obvious…
enjoy! Nice work fellas!

Live Music City, high hopes.
