(9.9) The WBRU 360°Fest takes place this Sunday at India Point Park featuring Juan Deuce & Falside, Chachi Cavallo, Project 401, and DirtyDurdie. Event sponsors RIPTA promise a family-friendly atmosphere with food and activities. Check out last week’s Providence Phoenix in which Juan Deuce and collaborator Falside arranged to be interviewed by Sage Francis. Chris Conti provides some background.
Juan Deuce and Falside continue to put in some serious work. Their hip-hop partnership is in full bloom, with Juan’s effervescent and charismatic flow cruising alongside Fal’s spiked rhythms. Their 2012 collaborative debut EP The Mechanics caught the ear of Sage Francis, founder of Strange Famous Records, which wisely scooped up distribution rights. Both artists have been kicking around long before The Mechanics, though, and keep cranking out choice solo platters and mixtapes.
Free and open to the public, noon to 6pm, Sunday, September 9, India Point Park (directions)
