People Under the Stairs Plays the Fox Theatre Tonight
Highlighter, People Under The Stairs' most ambitious work to date, marks their 8th album release and captures the unparalleled group at the height of their 14 year career. More than just an indie hip-hop album, Highlighter's outside collaborators comprise a group of influential LA indie-rock producers, engineers and live players featuring everything from full string sections to vintage vibraphones & keyboards. Recorded across a handpicked selection of Los Angeles studios, the duo dig deep into tape, consoles, obscure records and live players and emerge with a project that is both unique and yet familiar. Amidst the swirling musical landscapes, the P realize their most psychedelic album yet and continue to pioneer an alternate, innovative musical direction in rap music.
Their illustrious career includes an appearance on the Simpson's 20th Anniversary Special, John Peele Session at Abbey Road, and groundbreaking performances at key festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Bonnaroo, the last of which was noted by SPIN magazine as "Simply the best performance of Friday...period!" As part of their 10 Year Anniversary World Tour in 2009, People Under The Stairs traveled to new continents with sold out shows in China, Brazil and Africa and continued to tour through 2010 with mainstage plays at Outside Lands Festival, Governors Ball NYC and many others. With their 8th studio album Highlighter, independently released in September, the P will be heading out in the fall with Mac Miller and continuing to play festivals and shows worldwide.
