Busdriver | ArtsRiot | Clubs | Seven Days | Vermont's Independent Voice



When: Thu., June 29, 8:30 p.m. 2017

Los Angeles-based rapper Busdriver has been spitting rhymes for over 20 years. He came of age in the mid-1990s Project Blowed scene, a sort of hip-hop think tank, workshop and open mic where many underground MCs got their starts. Despite connections with famous producers and other rappers, Busdriver seems forever relegated to the fringe, unable to shake the “indie” or “alternative” label. In 2014, FACT Magazine published what it referred to as the “definitive Busdriver interview,” in which he speaks candidly about his love for his hometown, the stigma of the “indie” label, the pitfalls of mixtape culture and his career trajectory. Busdriver performs on Thursday, June 29, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.

Price: $12/14
