Gaslamp Killer
Gaslamp Killer

The Gaslamp Killer takes his surname from the section of San Diego that most resembles an outdoor mall. That city's best export since Kid606 has since moved up Interstate 5, scored a Low End Theory residency and, along with a cadre of cohorts like Flying Lotus and Dâm-Funk, bumped hip hop into another dimension. Originally zoning in on underground rap, his early mixes were like a single-handed attempt to resurrect the spirit of Gravediggaz. Subsequent pastiches broadened his scope, with two self-released volumes of It's A Rocky Road picking at everything from Ultimate Spinach to "Anasazi Noodle." Other joints for boutique labels like Obey are cavernous affairs, collecting stray bullets from decades of unpopular music. [Dusted]
Prefuse 73 and The Gaslamp Killer are teaming up for a tour in 2010 that kicks off at Music Hall of Williamsburg (MHOW) in Brooklyn on Tuesday, January 19th. Tickets for that show go on sale today (12/11) at noon. Like RJD2 who also just announced a tour and is playing the same Brooklyn venue, Prefuse 73 will be touring as a full band. VOICEsVOICEs will play in the band and open some (or all?) of the shows too.

Before then, Prefuse 73 has one other date - opening for Umphrey's McGee at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago for New Year's Eve. All dates below...
