AdvertisementWidows are Jams. F. Kennedy and Bobby Evans – an eclectic rap duo from Los Angeles, formed out of the ashes of previously awesome LA rap group, Brother Reade. Widows are playing in San Francisco on Thursday June 13 at 111 Minna Gallery with support from Antwon and Alexander Spit. It’s all the name of the Colors of Tequila traveling pop-up series being presented by Olmeca Altos Tequila and which will be celebrating the best in drink, food, music and art.

If you get along to the party, you’ll not only have your ears set alight by the sounds of the featured acts, your taste-buds will be tempted by the bespoke menu of Mission Chinese who will be serving up Chongqing Chicken Wings, Thrice Cooked Bacon, and Salt Cod Fried Rice. All of which will be washed down by Olmeca Altos cocktails – a 100% Blue Agave Tequila. Yum.

To gain free entry to this San Francisco event, head here and RSVP now.

THE COLORS OF TEQUILA : SAN FRANCISCO
Thursday June 13th, 2013
Music: Widows, Antwon, Alexander Spit
Food: Mission Chinese
111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna Street, San Francisco, CA

Here are some songs that are inspiring Widows right now:


The Dream / Pussy feat. Big Sean, Pusha T
The-Dream is unstoppable, the world needs more multi-faceted r&b. At this point, he’s the answer.


Young Thug / Picacho feat. Maceo
The approach of Young Thug on this whole mixtape (1017 Thug) is so raw and sincere, makes me think another great cottage industry type era of rap could be just around the corner.


Dawn Richards / Bombs
This tune came out last year, and didn’t hit anywhere close to as hard as it should have. As a DJ, this kind of song is perfect, because it’s like having a top 40 rNb banger you can drop that people haven’t heard 1000 times already. Plus she’s ex-Danity Kane and her solo music sounds this hard? I’m sold.


Grip Plyaz / Jackie Joyner feat. A. Leon Craft and Trinidad James
This Generation of ATL rappers always inspires me. I was a huge fan of Da Backwudz (A. Leon Craft’s old group) and Grip Plyaz has been swinging for the fences on every outing. A rare Trinidad James Patois and a Vangelis sample are icing on the cake.


Sheila E / A Love Bizarre
This song is a classic. Sheila E. is a classic. This song is 12 minutes and it’s not long enough. We all want a love bizarre.
