Pharcyde dates announced

The Pharcyde: Bootie Brown and Imani
Official dates for The Pharcyde's first ever trip to NZ have been announced, following earlier release of presale tickets for their Auckland show last Friday. Coming to Wanaka, Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. The lineup for this tour is Bootie Brown and Imani - the original lineup (including ex-members Slimkid Tre and Fatlip) reformed a few years back for the Rock the Bells tour, but they are not coming here.

As noted previously on this blog, former members Tre and Fatlip took part in a tribute to their debut album in May..." celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Pharcyde's seminal album, Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde, label Delicious Vinyl threw a huge party at the Roxy.... While SlimKid3 (pronounced "Slim Kid Tre") and Fatlip performed, the other two original members critical to Bizarre Ride's creation — Imani and Bootie Brown — were noticeably absent." The latter two retain the rights to the band's name.  More on that story here.

Bootie Brown is the MAN. I saw this interview he did with FXpansion where he talks about producing and how he has evolved. Peep it out.
