TO celebrate ten years, Dope Sandwich is having a family reunion of sorts, with opportunities for kids, grown folks, early birds and nightlifers alike to catch a show.
At the center of a packed and impressive bill is Union of Sacred Monsters, a collaborative effort that produced one of the label’s best releases in 2010—members are flying in from all corners of the U.S. just to get in on this one.
Label mainstays Dope KNife, Basik Lee, and Miggs Son Daddy will perform solo sets; KNife and Miggs’ duo project, Happy Thoughts, have a set of their own.
Spoken word artist Valore will perform with Obamabo (Oisin Daly). Daly uses his Obamabo project to explore beats and sound, creating innovative remixes of local music including Street Clothes, Miggs ft. Mothabug, and Xuluprophet.
Dope Sandwich artists Cult Cyph, Bassdrum Bloodlust, $uper Toine, Mafamadix, Solo, Black Ceaser, Spitfire Poetry Group and Re2se are all slated to appear, along with DJ Valis and DJ Word Life.
Atlanta’s The Difference Machine makes a hypnotizing kind of textural, noise and psychedelic-influenced hip-hop. They’re slated to perform the new, Atlanta edition of Afropunk Fest after their Savannah shows—catch them while you can, you’ll be hearing their name outside the Southeast soon enough.
Friday, September 18: Blowin’ Smoke, 12 p.m., all ages & The Jinx, 9 p.m.
