Amoeba San Francisco - July 29th @ 6:00pm
Seattle-based experimental hip-hop collective Shabazz Palaces plays live at Amoeba SF in celebration of the release of their second studio album, Lese Majesty! Buy a copy of Lese Majesty (available on LP & CD) at Amoeba on the day of the in-store and get it signed.
Lese Majesty is a beatific war cry, born of a spell, acknowledging that sophistication and the instinctual are not at odds; Indeed an undoing of the lie of their disparate natures.
Lese Majesty is not a launching pad for the group’s fan base increasing propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared. A dare to dive deep into Shabazz Palaces sounds, vibrations unfettered. A dope-hex thrown from the compartments that have artificially contained us all and hindered our sublime collusion.
These reveries were sent to Palaceer Lazaro and Fly Guy ‘Dai in the year of gun beat battles in excess; In a succession of days, whilst walking in dreams and in varied transcendental states….(every minute of every day is filled with observation and composition. In action). Songs are committed and gathered by robots at Protect and Exalt Labs, a Black Space in Seattle, Washington.
Also catch Shabazz Palaces July 28 & 29 at The New Parish in Oakland.
