A Rickshaw Stop 10th Anniversary Show with
In January 2004, a little music venue threw open its doors on an unassuming stretch of Fell Street in San Francisco's Hayes Valley. Over the past 10 years, a slew of amazing bands have graced its stage, from rock icons like Jonathan Richman and the Undertones to now-huge indie acts like M.I.A., Vampire Weekend, and Tune-Yards, to cutting edge electronic artists like Toro y Moi, Matthew Dear, and Neon Indian.
On January 7-12, Rickshaw Stop celebrates 10 years of kicking ass by throwing a mini-festival, featuring musical acts that have graced the stage at some point in the club's decade of service.
LESLIE & THE LY'S
Leslie Hall first became an internet sensation when she uploaded pictures of her gem sweater collection online. After quickly attracting over 2 million hits, she was left with an $800 bill for exceeding bandwidth. In order to pay back her mother, Leslie did what any 200 lb plus Iowan girl would do, she became a lady rapper. Since then, Hall has toured relentlessly with Leslie and the LY's, self-released 5 full-length albums, and produced such viral video hits as Gold Pants, Zombie Killer, How We Go Out, Blame the Booty, and Tight Pants/Body Rolls. The band's ever-evolving live show features elaborate props, flashy costumes, and Las Vegas style production at Midwest prices. You will squeal with delight when Leslie tumbles and triumphs across the stage.
"Sporting gold pants, oversize glasses, blue eye shadow and a blond bouffant that 80s-mall-rat-meets-Mormon-schoolteacher, [Leslie] Hall spits out rhymes about her shoulder pads having the power to destroy villages, homes and crops while fronting two backup girls playing mock turntable and Keytar." --LA Weekly
