It’s pretty weird to imagine hip hop gracing the singer-songwriter-heavy stage at Cozmic, but who better to be that anomaly than The Coup? The Bay Area crew has been blaring their politically charged, G-funk laced hip-hop for over twenty years, and it seems there’s no end in sight. The group may have cut its teeth way back during the heydays of Public Enemy and De La Soul, but it hits just as hard now as it did back then. So if you feel like throwing up a finger to the cold and removing your mud-stained flannel for an evening, hit Cozmic on Wednesday and see how epic hip hop on a board-stompin’ stage can be.
The Coup plays at 9pm Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Cozmic; $15.
