Francis (playing a 21+ Treefort show at Reef at 12:30 a.m. tonight) will deliver a special spoken word performance at 5 p.m. TODAY at The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages — and you don’t need a Treefort pass to attend (but you should get one anyway and we have them for sale at the store).
ABOUT SAGE FRANCIS
Dubbed as the “forefather of indie-hop,” Sage Francis first made a name for himself in the spoken word scene and by winning the most highly coveted titles in the emcee battle circuit during the early 2000s.
After that, Francis set aside the more boastful sides of rap and became recognized for his poetic leanings and the scathing socio-political commentary in the lyrics featured on his Strange Famous and Epitaph Records releases. Like so many great songwriters before him, Francis uses his gifted wordplay for a much greater good, creating vivid narratives and heartfelt confessionals to instigate and inspire the listener. Whether either of those things happen, his dying wish is simply for his beard to grow so long that he can fuck it.
