Primal Winds NOT reunion on Boat Party!

On Thursday, June 30th (tomorrow night!) fans of Primal Winds will have a rare opportunity to see both District Prime and Iron Wind perform NOT reunited with solo performances on two different stages, Prime on the first floor, where you can also see frequent collaborator Warrzone do his thing, and Iron Wind will be performing on the second floor, perhaps alongside some of his new label mates at My City Records. No idea who any of the other performers are, but with three floors of live hip hop jams I’m sure it will be a fun night.

“Revenge Vol. 1 is a spooky, scrungy southern-style hip hop album that will be pumping from a local low-rider El Camino near you.” – Cups N Cakes
