I went along to the release party for the new album by local hiphop MC Ermehn last Thursday night. They had a lengthy list of performers, who got up and did two or three songs each. It kept the night moving nicely.
One act that stood out was a wild looking cat named STKS, who rocked a mohawk, yellow and black checks, and an acoustic guitar. He was distinctive.
He was helped out onstage by a beatboxer and a rapper. He was very lively, a natural performer. Here's a clip of what he sounds like, plus an interview.
His debut album Rhythm And Brown dropped in August of last year. Reads Graham Reid's writeup of it here.
