The Pharcyde

West Coast hip hop outfit, The Pharcyde’s debut album racked up more than a million sales and was widely praised as one of the most influential hip hop albums of the 1990s. Today, The Pharcyde is still performing and touring the globe as they continue to hone their individual abilities yet carry on the original legacy. They still seduce their audience with the same boyish charm, but now it’s combined with the knowledge that has been bestowed upon them as men who have risen to the challenge of the rap game. The end result of this hard work is a band that’s still influencing hip hop artists and sounds and will continue to for many years to come.

Opener: Free the Optimus

Asheville’s own, Free The Optimus is a hip hop collective focused on bringing improvisational lyricism to jazz-influenced boom bap soundscapes. The jazz / hip hop mindset of free form collaboration is a vital component to the FTO live experience, as songs and structure are often tossed aside in favor of the energy and groove of the moment.

Lots of local beers on tap, wine, soda and water are all available for purchase. Plus plenty of local food vendors to choose from!
