Forget all of that Purple Ribbon All-Star stuff and the fake-me-out "solo album", Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is Big Boi's first bonafide solo LP and out NOW via Purple Ribbon/Def Jam. Dig on one of those tracks, "Shine Blockas" available for download above.
The Brooklyn show is one of two Big Boi will play in NYC that week. The second takes place one day later at NYU (details TBA).
Total, Big Boi only has a handful of upcoming dates (that we can find at the moment). One other is a performance at Moogfest which is taking place on Halloween weekend in Asheville, NC...
AC Entertainment is excited to release the (still expanding) lineup of MoogFest 2010! As previously announced, this extraordinary three-day festival, celebrating the innovative vision of sonic pioneer, Robert Moog, will take place Halloween weekend, October 29-31, in Asheville, NC.
