Tour Dates: I Wanna Rock

For those of you out there looking for something a bit different than the rock-heavy festivals this summer, look no further than the hip hop-centric Rock The Bells series. Now in its seventh year, the traveling tour is currently scheduled to hit four cities this year – two on the East Coast and two on the West – and features a diverse selection of old and new school acts from the Wu-Tang Clan and KRS-One to Brother Ali and Jedi Mind Tricks.

For the first time in the event’s history the headliners will perform their most influential albums in their entirety, and we’ll see Wu-Tang tackling 36 Chambers, Rakim doing Paid In Full, Slick Rick doing The Great Adventures Of… and KRS-One taking the mic for Criminal Minded. There have also been heavily circulating rumors that both Lauryn Hill and A Tribe Called Quest will be joining the bill to perform classic albums, to fill the TBD slots.

If you’re not into a full day of live hip hop, than maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…

Finally, the String Cheese Incident will play host to their very own festival at Hornings Hideout in North Plains, OR to take place on July 29 – August 1. The band, who will headline each night, have recently announced the initial lineup of bands that will join them over the course of the weekend.

The four day fest will kick off on Thursday with sets from the SCIde Projects – Kyle Hollingsworth Band, CB3 w/ Michael Kang, Emmitt-Nershi Band and EOTO, while the rest of the weekend will feature sets from the likes of The Travelin’ McCourys, Toubab Krewe, Bill Frisell with Steve Moore & Rudy Royston, Col. Bruce Hampton, Beats Antique and the Soul Rebels Brass Band.
