A Tribe Called Red
Canadian production-DJ crew A Tribe Called Red has been mixing the percussion-heavy sounds of their native aboriginal culture with hip-hop and modern electronica since 2010, earning a Juno Award (the Canadian Grammy) in 2014 for Breakthrough Group of the Year. Featuring DJ NDN, Bear Witness, and 2oolman, their live shows are complemented by a Pink Floydian backdrop of video images illustrating the political and pop-culture talking points of their lyrics, including clips of stereotypical Hollywood Indians as portrayed by Caucasians. They’ll be plugging two releases from last year when they play the Music Box, their album We Are the Halluci Nation and an EP called Stadium Pow Wow. The bill includes Odessa Kane, Real J Wallace, and DJ Artistic.
