Part of the alternative rap movement, Jurassic 5 has been helping keep the ethos of old-school hip-hop alive since forming in 1993. The five-piece L.A. crew is celebrated for the tag-team delivery of its four MCs, who harmonize on choruses and drop positive and inventive lyrics, interspersed with self-promotion and social commentary. Taking its message outside of trad hip-hop circles, the 5 have opened for Fiona Apple, played on the 2000 Vans Warped Tour and 2003 Lollapalooza, and has appeared at the Reading and Bonnaroo festivals.

On its release, Feedback, Jurassic 5’s fourth full-length, went to #15 in the Billboard album chart. The disc, which follows the hit records Quality Control and Power in Numbers, features the singles “Red Hot” and “Work It Out”. The latter is one of the act’s most accessible tracks yet, with a smooth down-tempo vibe and a guest appearance by the Dave Matthews Band. It’s a track sure to bring even more converts to J5’s fist-pumping, hip-shaking party.

Don’t miss your chance to see Jurassic 5 when they return to Vancouver live at the Commodore Ballroom.
