sage live review from the wire  Reply with quote  

just thought you'd like to know about a small review of sage live at an outdoor festival in barcelona not long ago..... it's in the august 2003 issue of the wire....

"Sage Francis emerges for a solo set accompanied only be his faithful backing tracks on CD. Before a word has been spoken, he strips off his jacket, cloaks himself in a stars and stripes flag on which the stars have been replaced by familiar corporate logos, and proceeds to lash himself with his own belt. Francis's set is all about atonement: in an hour of excoriation, he makes a direct apology for the actions of his own President, and raps about various aspects of betrayal: by government, by his ex-wife, by HipHop itself. Rarely does rap achieve such edgy, psychotic and self-mocking states."

there is also a picture of mr. francis rocking the mic......

no probs.... i always try and point out reviews of shows and albums and whatnot because i know you take interest in what people's perceptions of you are.... especially from magazines that don't just focus on hip hop....

I'm sure you may already know about this but I was flipping through the latest issue of Urb at a bookstore and there's a sidebar article on your signing to Epitaph in there.
