Indie rapper-turned-soul crooner Aloe Blacc, who we interviewed a few weeks ago, is now back in the States touring his album Good Things.
Back then the Laguna Hills native said, “I'm looking at booking an
OC show but I first want to see how well people respond to the LA dates.
It would be nice for OC kids to drive to LA–I used to do it in high
school almost every weekend!”
Does the USC grad deserve the hipster hype (his show is hosted by KCRW and Pitchfork looooooves him)? Check out his cover of Velvet Underground's “Femme Fatale” and see for yourself.
His show is scheduled on Friday, Dec. 3, 9 p.m. at the Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles, $12, 21+.
