Post-hyphy indie darling Iamsu! is bringing his Bay Area party-wave vibe to Neumos on August 26th (along with fellow regional acts Kool John and Jay Ant — with whom Iamsu! collaborated on last year’s Stoopid mixtape). The good promotional folks at Ent Legends are offering up not one, but TWO pairs of tickets to give away to some lucky 206UP.COM readers.
To enter to win a pair, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, OR a tweet to @206upBlog with the phrase “IAMSU! AND SO ARE YOU” written somewhere in the message. We’ll draw two names at random and each winner will receive two tickets. If you’re a loser (ie. one whose name is not drawn) — womp, womp — you can still click over to Ent Legends to purchase tickets on your own. Good luck!

New today is this remix of Kingdom’s “The Mezzanine,” treated with due respect by one half of Fresh Espresso, P Smoov. The two groups will be performing at the same City Arts Fest show at Neumos on 10/19. Go here to check the science.

At Saturday’s sold-out Cinemetropolis Album Release Party, the second of a two-night run at Neumos, Blue Scholars had Seattle hip-hop fans eating out of their proverbial hands, as has been the case at all of the duo’s local shows for the last six years or so. The energetic all ages crowd followed Geo and Sabzi’s lead for nearly an hour and a half as the crew marched through a set list heavy on new material with a few select older favorites.
