How the Grouch Stole Christmas 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009

What good is a holiday present without colorful wrapping? No, I mean the other kind of rapping, with mikes, MCs, and turntables. At Thursday's How the Grouch Stole Christmas date, the audience gets the gift of gab with sets by prolific Living Legends member the Grouch, hyphy king Mistah F.A.B., and hotly tipped newcomer Fashawn with L.A. beatmaker Exile. Every act on this bill could headline: Grouch is a compelling hip-hop narrator, F.A.B.'s infectious energy defines "party rap," and Fashawn's fluid, reality-infused rhymes recall Nas in his prime. Even better, this show is a Toys for Tots drive; bring a new, wrapped toy and receive a musical present from the Grouch. Maybe it'll be a copy of his newly released, DJ Fresh–produced album, Three Eyes off the Time.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
