The BEST OF TIMES 12″ is incredibly rare and totally exclusive to our online store. Each vinyl comes signed by Sage Francis along with one of Sage’s handwritten lyric sheets (the same ones featured in the Best of Times video.) We only have 13 in stock and once these are sold, they are gone forever.

My best friend growing up took 12 D batteries

D, muthafucka…D!!!

This was my best friend growing up. As soon as I saved up enough money from my paper route, my mom took me to the store so I could buy it. The dual cassette was its most important asset. I used it to Read the rest of this entry »

I’m an honorary member of Native Tongues. What…you mean I’m not?

I just finished 3 east coast shows; Boston, NYC & RI with the Metermaids and a mix of varying performers in each city.  The NYC show was at the legendary Irving Plaza which was amazing in itself, but what made the night most special to me was the artists who were in attendance. Eternia, the fiercest emcee to ever wear a skirt, was kind enough to open the show for us (joined on stage by DJ Boo and Range.) I hope this goes without saying, but they absolutely killed it. Eternia is a superstar and no one knows it yet. Great writing, delivery, performance, everything.

To my great surprise, Eternia is friends with Jarobi from A Tribe Called Quest. Her manager, Sav, hollered at him on twitter asking if he’d be interesting in coming out to the show. When I noticed that, I off-handedly mentioned that I would perform my rendition of ATCQ’s “Can I Kick It?” as I Read the rest of this entry »

A Sage Francis painting and a United miracle.

I just wrapped up 3 shows in the northwest. I was joined by the METERMAIDS and Sadistik in Seattle & Portland. We also had guest appearances by Oldominion homies, SLEEP and Onry Ozzborn. My last show was in Victoria, BC which is where I acquired the 36″x48″ canvas painting displayed below. 

A mysterious gentleman handed me this magnificent work of art (based on a photo taken of me in 2003) as soon as I stepped off stage at Read the rest of this entry »
