McPike Park Sessions: Lyrics Born / The Iguanas / Panchromatic Steel

Fri August 9 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

5:00–Panchromatic Steel is a steeldrum band from Madison, playing calypso, jazz, and popular hits as a showcase for the steelpan, the national instrument of Trinidad and Tobago that was originally made from discarded oil drums. The irresistible, danceable sound of the band is due to the resourcefulness and creativity of the Caribbean musicians who invented the steelpan, thought to be the only new acoustic instrument developed in the twentieth century, and used it to play calypso and “soca,” a high-energy dance music that combined American funk and soul, classical Indian music, and Latin rhythms.

6:30–The Iguanas are a roots rock band from New Orleans who blend blues, jazz, Chicano Rock, R&B and various Latin styles into a uniquely American mélange of cultures and eras.  Singing in English and Spanish, they roll sax, accordion, guitar, and drums into a smooth hybrid groove, their effortless communication in live performances influenced by 30 years of playing together.

8:30–Bay Area rapper Lyrics Born (Tom Shimura) is currently at the top of his game.  One of the top-selling independent solo hip-hop artists, he rose from being an underground MC to become a major hip-hop icon and has earned a reputation for being one of the most exciting and consistent live performers around.  Charismatic, stylish, and exciting, Lyrics Born has a distinctive, soulful rasp and a swaggering vocal delivery is equally adept at melody and rhyme.  Terming himself the “funkiest rapper alive,” he weaves funk and soul influences from James Brown and George Clinton into classic rap forms.
