The Merry Widow is giving local counter-culturists a great soundtrack to the 4/20 festivities, as Epic Beard Men bring together the verbal talents of Sage Francis and B. Dolan.
With more than two decades of experience in hip-hop, Francis used the complicated flow of his breakout single “Makeshift Patriot” and the internet to gather a multitude of sonic disciples. B. Dolan is also a respected and intricate lyricist who fills each measure to the fullest. These two meet on common ground with a delivery of sonic poetry that skirts the edge of spoken word and activism.
Epic Beard Men will give The Merry Widow crowd a live interpretation of their debut album, “Season 1.” With its onslaught of versatile beats and flow, this assemblage of innovative hip-hop exists in the same realm as such modern heavy hitters as Run the Jewels. Too infectious to be missed, “Season 1” is an album that defies the single-driven mentality and begs to be purchased as a complete collection.
