Believe the hype: Jackson is about to get a major infusion of hip-hop next month, headlined by Chuck D and Public Enemy.
The Pink Garter Theater presents the Hip Hop Gods Classic Tourfest on Sunday, Dec. 9. The James Brown-style rolling revue will feature Public Enemy, nominated this year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a rotating cast that includes X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D, Leaders Of The New School, Wise Intelligent from Poor Righteous Teachers, Son Of Bazerk & No Self Control, Awesome Dre, Davy DMX and DJ Johnny Juice.
Tickets are $35 and go on sale at noon Saturday at the theater, Pinky G’s pizzeria, online or by calling 877-435-9849.
“We are excited to offer Jackson Hole a show that is touring primarily to major markets like L.A.,” says promoter Dom Gagliardi. “Our goal with the Pink Garter Theater is to attract national touring acts and entice them to stop in Jackson, and this is a great step in that direction.”
Chuck D will emcee. Barring a court date, Flavor Flav is slated to join him.
Tonight, the Pink Garter hosts the return of Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real. The rock and roll guitar wonder has become a local favorite in recent years. Tickets are $23 at the door.
