Bambu
In an era when people are calling on artists to help by a voice of resistance, Los Angeles rapper Bambu isn’t afraid to rhyme on the front line. As the LA Weekly put it, “Filipino-American rapper Bambu de Pistola makes some of today’s favorite artists look like Republicans with rich-rapper problems.” His lyrical musings on race, politics, police, and gangs don’t pull any punches. Bambu heads to the Crocodile to deliver his unfiltered worldview with a show that also features Gifted Gab and Tef Poe. The Crocodile, $10-18
