The Pharcyde at Detroit Bar Sat. May 17

Get Yer Hands Dirty, B! Productions and Mute97 bring the Pharcyde to Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar Saturday. The Pharcyde (Imani, Bootie Brown, Fatlip and Tre Hardson) brought weirdness, off-kilter humor and smarts to mainstream hip-hop with two excellent LPs: 1992's Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde and 1995's Labcabincalifornia. Now, after a couple of lackluster albums following their peak years and some time off, they're trying to make a comeback. We wish them the best, even as we try to forget that annoyingly banal novelty song Fatlip did with the Chemical Brothers (“The Salmon Dance”).

Also on the bill: Sparrow Love Crew, From Elsewhere (noMSG, roamZILLA, urthWORM), Colossal KNXN, DJ Metric, GMO Vs. Rockberry and Y.O.O.K.S.

First 50 people to comment here (beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday) get $10 off their ticket. $15 adv; $20 DOS. 21+.

Check out the funky chucklefest that is “Ya Mama.”
