Fresh Espresso

Back in December, local laser-eyed hip hop crew Fresh Espresso were set to ring in the new year at Chop Suey, headlining an ace bill of local talent. And then the party-starters quietly backed out of the biggest party night of the year. Rumors abounded, but all that was known was that the group's prodigious producer/rapper P Smoov had suddenly decamped back to Michigan for an extended holiday with his family, and possibly to clear his head out. P Smoov and Fresh Espresso (rounded out by MC Rik Rude and DJ Terry Radjaw) are back—for now—and back on a bill with excitable punk rap hellions Don't Talk to the Cops! Sometimes, with great power comes great volatility, or as a wise man once said: "back up, because the laser beams is so hot." With White China Gold, DJ 100Proof. ERIC GRANDY
