The Pharcyde at Detroit Bar Sat. May 17

Categories: tonight

Get Yer Hands Dirty, B! Productions and Mute97 bring the Pharcyde to Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar Saturday. The Pharcyde (Imani, Bootie Brown, Fatlip and Tre Hardson) brought weirdness, off-kilter humor and smarts to mainstream hip-hop with two excellent LPs: 1992's Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde and 1995's Labcabincalifornia. Now, after a couple of lackluster albums following their peak years and some time off, they're trying to make a comeback. We wish them the best, even as we try to forget that annoyingly banal novelty song Fatlip did with the Chemical Brothers (“The Salmon Dance”).

Also on the bill: Sparrow Love Crew, From Elsewhere (noMSG, roamZILLA, urthWORM), Colossal KNXN, DJ Metric, GMO Vs. Rockberry and Y.O.O.K.S.

First 50 people to comment here (beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday) get $10 off their ticket. $15 adv; $20 DOS. 21+.

Check out the funky chucklefest that is “Ya Mama.”
