We’ve been following Humboldt County rap duo Potluck for a while now. Last year, we ran a series of webisodes with the hip-hop act, following them on the road for the Strange Noize 2011 tour and in the studio for the making of their Rhymes & Resin album. Now, they’re back, offering us an inside look into their current trek on the road for their headlining “Underground Rebels” tour.
The tour brings together the outcasts, rebels and misfits of the underground music scene onto one bill — including DGAF, Kung Fu Vampire and The DRP — for a full cross-country tour, hitting 35 different cities. The tour kicked off on May 30th and continues through mid-July, making stops in Washington state, Oregon, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Detroit and Pittsburgh, among other cities.
In Episode #1 of Potluck’s Tour Diary, the tour’s acts get ready in the days leading up to the first show. We check in with DGAF, Kung Fu Vampire and The DRP to see how they’re doing pre-tour; Potluck’s Underrated offers a brief preview of what their show will consist of; and merch manager B-Dosia shows off his road “essentials” to keep all the stoners satisfied.
The clip also offers a short preview of the first stop in Albuquerque, NM, showing each act’s performance.
