Love File Under: Pizza Is Delicious

One quick highlight from yesterday at the EMP Pop Conference: Blue Scholars are fucking great. Even at one in the afternoon, playing for a sparse, sleepy crowd made up of a surprising amount of kids and families. Geologic spits sparks, a political descendent of Chuck D but with a more slippery flow and subtle cadence than PE’s hard-consonant bombs. Sabzi’s beats rumbled mightily on the Sky Church’s sound system; his record drops were consistently spine-tingling. After all the academic hand-wringing of many of the conference’s presentations, Blue Scholars’ broad populism was refreshing, even inspiring.
