TONIGHT: UAA Student Activities presents Blue Scholars
by Kathleen McCoy |
Wednesday, July 28, 7:30 p.m.
Wendy Williamson Auditorium
Blue Scholars has emerged out of the erupting Northwest hip-hop scene with soulful beats, poetic yet political rhymes and a reputation for dynamic live performances. With two full-length albums and three EPs, the group has become one of the top West Coast independent hip hop acts, known for their energetic and always entertaining live shows and a world view that blends the personal and the political, but unafraid to party in the process.
Blue Scholars has performed with the likes of Kanye West, De La Soul, Immortal Technique, Q-Tip and has been a supporting act for Matisyahu, Gym Class Heroes, Flobots and the Coup.
"(Blue Scholars) seamlessly blend party energy and political fierceness with poetic purpose. The Scholars are equally polished and focused, but it's their spirited honesty that rightfully placed them at the forefront of Seattle's hip-hop scene and conscious movement." -- SEATTLE WEEKLY
