FREE & Open to the public. Space is limited and on a first come first-serve basis. Doors open at 7! Sage Francis!
Hosted by Jonathan B. Tucker, Terpoets co-founder and coach of the DC Youth Slam Team, with DJ Black Santa.
“Darkness and light, anger and serenity, tragedy and comedy – these extremes are contained in Sage Francis, and they provide the foundation for Human the Death Dance, his best album to date. From the moment its curtains open to their drawing closed, Sage’s fourth solo album (and his second for Epitaph) evokes the arc of its maker’s lifespan – literally spanning the decades from his first recordings as an eight year-old rapper (captured on opener “Growing Pains”) to the stark contemplation of his darkest days (on the subtly affecting closer, “Going Back to Rehab”). Between those two poles, Sage proves he’s not just a rapper, nor just a spoken-word artist – he’s the best lyricist of his generation”
