The GrouchThis December, Living Legends group member The Grouch is bringing fans on the West Coast a gift -- live hip-hop.

The rapper, along with other acts, will head out on the rapper's How The Grouch Stole Christmas Tour, kicking off in Bend, Oregon on December 8th, and hitting more than 10 cities before winding down in Reno, a few days after Christmas.

Initially started as an annual show held in Oakland, Calif., The Grouch decided to take the show on the road for the holiday season. He will be accompanied by fellow Living Legends crew member, Eligh, performing solo sets as well as a combined G&E (The Grouch & Eligh) set. Also onboard is up-and-coming Bay Area trio, The Bayliens, and handling opening duties will be hip-hop violinist Paul Dateh, who has been growing a buzz in the music scene over the past year.

During the tour, Grouch will be performing tracks on his newly released solo project, Show You The World, while promoting his upcoming collaborative project with Eligh called Say G&E, coming next year.

Also up next year is a project Eligh has been working on with his mother called On Sacred Ground: Mother & Son, slated for next year as well.

We hope all your kiddies have been good this year, because The Grouch is coming to your town to find out who's been naughty or nice.
