DLRN w/ Privileges + Stevie Nader @ Transition2016

Happy new year folks!

This Sunday in Sacramento, DLRN will be playing some new shit at Sol Collective for “Transition 5”. The annual showcase was created by producer AREYOU (Ru) in 2011 as a way to feature both the production and emceeing elements of hip hop music while flowing together seamlessly as one long performance. The event’s a great way to kick off the year and usually results in a reunion for everyone in the Sacramento hip hop scene. We’ll be playing some stuff of the new album with support from the homies of PRVLGS, a prog rock/jazz duo that are insane on the drums and keys. Also performing this year is headliner DUCKWRTH with Alyssa Bernal, RU AREYOU, Stevie Nader, Chuuwee, Soosh*e! and JustKristofer. It’s an all ages show that’s only $10 at the door. We’ll have some special stickerpacks for folks that come through and hang.

SN&R Recap of Sister Crayon, DLRN & Stevie Nader

This week’s issue of alt-weekly Sacramento News & Review featured a recap of last Saturday’s show with Sister Crayon and Stevie Nader. SN&R’s Janelle Bitker writes:

“Stevie Nader and DLRN split an opening set, backed by DJ Druskee and drummer Omar Gonzalez-Barajas. DLRN’s Sean Lamarr, impressed by the sizeable crowd of folks rocking out early, issued a thanks: “I bet you guys didn’t come here for hip-hop.”

That wasn’t entirely accurate, though, given the rich hip-hop influences on Sister Crayon’s Devoted. And truly, I can’t think of a better local opener for 2015’s Sister Crayon than Nader and DLRN. Even though Nader and DLRN collaborate all the time, it’s never less special. It’s just a combo that works so well—Nader’s backup vocals on DLRN’s “Fear & Loathing” and Lamarr’s guest slot on Nader’s “Make You” along with rapper Soosh*e created soulful, dynamic breaks from the norm.”
