|B. Dolan and Sage Francis...how'd you like to be staring at this from the front row?|
Rapping politicos Sage Francis
and B. Dolan
have a lot in common. They're both from Rhode Island--one of (if not the most) pissed off states in the Union. They both spit wickedly educational flows. They co-founded corporate watchdog site www.knowmore.org
together in 2005.They both cherish their facial hair. As a matter of fact, kinda look like brothers (or more specifically, the Bushwhackers from the days of the WWF).
And next week, they'll be tag-teaming your eardrums as they bring the pain--and the rhymes--to the Glass House
for their L(I)FE on the Road Tour featuring Long Beach's Free Moral Agents.
These days, Francis and Dolan are busy bustng out ace material from their new solo releases on Francis' Strange Famous Records--L(I)FE and Fallen House, Sunken City respectively. To make the deal even sweeter, FMA (featuring keyboardist/brainchild Ikey Owens of the Mars Volta) are traveling as the house band, cranking out funky and atmospheric jams while Francis unleashes vivid stories of troubled childhood, searching for true love, corporate greed, youthful angst, crack pipes, etc.
So what else can you expect when the tour rolls through Pomona next Wednesday? Well, we don't like to predict the moves of these wild card rappers, but here's some videos from the tour so far that should give you a clue.
