Sasquatch Hiphop @ Sasquatch

We had a great Sasquatch guide in last week’s print edition of The Stranger but I was a little disappointed to see that none of the great hiphop acts performing this weekend got any shine. And no, the Beastie Boys don’t count.
Gabriel Teodros, showcasing the softer side of Seattle hip hop, is performing on the Yeti stage at 1PM on Saturday and Common Market is there Sunday at (huh huh) 4:20. If you go see Polyphonic Spree instead of Common Market, you’re a chump.
On Sunday, get your ass to the mainstage at 12:50 to see Mix Master Mike, formerly of the Invisibl Skratch Pikls, perform some of the most accessible turntablism ever. He’s the only thing still (if ever) interesting going on with the Beastie Boys.
After MMM, stick around at the mainstage for Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel aka Blackalicious. Gab is a lyrical technician and should not be missed.
Now, a clip of Gab rocking the mic alongside Tom Green:
