    He used to be great live. Opening for Deerhoof, he was mediocre.

    last time i saw him was in escondido (north san diego county). probably no more than 30 people at the venue. he killed. even though he uses a cd player instead of a live dj, its incredible to watch and hear him rap.

    I thought he was great last night at the GAMH.
    I was only slightly familiar with him but I had more fun during his set than Deerhoof's.

    His DJ/Programmer killed it.
    Terrible crowd (typical SF hipster crowd) but he was still able to win them over by the ed of the night.

    I would say that his set is a must see on Friday.


    Are you pushing it out, you ******?

    he's certainly a MUST see for friday. even if you don't really like most rap/hip-hop, you should still check him out. he'll blow you away

    Agreed.
    I'm not going this year but I would highly recommend his set no matter who is on against him.

    I checked out a couple of his records and though good, they don't compare to his live performance. Again, I was blown away by his DJ (I think his name is 2Mex?).

    He "played" a lot of the intricate drum tracks and bass lines live and never missed a beat (which has many time signature changes...)

    No way, Dave. He probably just pressed play just like Chemical Brothers.

    2mex is another rapper part of OMD and the PROJECT BLOWED family. i think his dj on tour is either boom bip or nobody. i liked reagen better when he had dreads though.

    Busdriver is amazing live. I saw him open for deerhoof last night in SF, he's definitely worth checking out.

    Is it just me or is boom bip more than one fella? I have their last record and the remix tag along, and I saw them at Coachella, and they seemed like a band. I know there are boom bip remixes, but I thought they were more than that. I could be wrong. Please correct my misconceptions.

    He was supposed to be at Skribble Jam this year here in Cincinnati but he didn't show up........Casual did though so that was cool.
