DAS RACIST Returns to San Francisco with Special Guests on Friday July 29th at Mezzanine Nightclub
Das Racist makes exclusive Bay Area appearance this summer at bigger venue, with last two shows selling out in SF and Oakland
East meets West – coastally and globally – when the Das Racist rhyme machine returns to San Francisco for a musical carnival at the Mezzanine Nightclub on July 29th. Special guest performances include Punjabi funk-hop group BlackMahal and Ren the Vinyl Archeologist. Das Racist aims to put on an unforgettable night of collective body-shaking, beat-bumping, and flow-spitting fun.
Hailing from Brooklyn, Das Racist is a critically acclaimed hip-hop trio that is a self described white guilt art project, science experiment, and ponzi scheme piloted by the likes of Heems, KOOL A.D., and hype man Dapwell. Das Racist comes to San Francisco once again as part of their goal of “one day making a million dollars.”
BlackMahal is a San Francisco-based live music experience complete with Dhol drums, DJs, horns, hip-hop MCs, and the godfather of Punjabi-American music, Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti. The group will be performing new material from their upcoming debut album, Music+Love+Dancing.
The event will also feature other cultural offerings, including the world premier of Fair and Lovely Inside, a film by Sandeep Sood.

Chosen as one of 50 acts to watch during the 2010 SXSW Festival and a Top 50 album for 2010 by Pitchfork, Das Racist is now one of the most compelling hip hop groups in the U.S. based in Brooklyn, New York City, New York, composed of Queens-born Himanshu Suri (aka Heems), and San Francisco-born Victor Vazquez (aka Kool A.D.), joined by hype man Ashok Kondabolu, known as Dap, for live performances and in music videos.
BlackMahal is steeped in Old California, a Punjabi-American experience that started in the 1890s when the first Punjabi-Americans settled in the Great West and forged a new identity combining elements of Mexican and African-American influence. The band has rocked major concerts across North America including the 2010 Vancouver Olympics with features in Rolling Stone, Wired, The San Francisco Chronicle, and rotation on the BBC Radio 1.
