[FUNK] It’s hard not to like the style of Oakland-based hip-hop group the Coup. The group consists of an Afro-adorned political activist named Boots Riley, who raps about social injustices in a smooth, pimped-out hush, and DJ Pam the Funkstress, whose skills on the ones and twos have garnered her the nickname “the Party Slapper.” The duo has spent more than two decades sticking it to the man with a funky brand of rap rooted in the music of ’70s blaxploitation flicks, but the group’s last album, 2012’s Sorry to Bother You, mixed wobbly synths with dirty guitar riffs and trash-can drums to create the punkest gangster-rap record since Ice-T’s “Cop Killer.” Portland MC Luck-One will warm the show up with his own brand of fiery conscious rap, so be sure to get there on time.
