Kicking off POW! WOW! San Jose’s yearly event, the SJZ Boombox Truck will be rolling out to the Valley Title Parking Lot to showcase some top-notch talent while celebrating local artists. Live music for the evening will feature rapper Yung Pinch and DJ Sasha Marie along with Lyrics Born and Cutso who will perform excerpts from their latest collaborative album, Rapp Nite.
Lyrics Born has obliterated the stereotypes of what an MC is “supposed to” look like and captured the hearts of countless fans who gravitate to his distinctive voice. He’s now the only Asian-American MC to release 10 studios albums and the first to play major music festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza. Frequently touring together, Lyrics Born will be joined by the member of world-renown DJ/producer outfit The Bangerz, Cutso, who always brings his eclectic taste in music to the mix.
Do You Know San Jose? is our new initiative that explores the music, people and special places of San Jose, spotlighting the important role of live music as a part of its cultural identity. April–October, 2019, 15 events will pop up in every corner of the city featuring a variety of musicians and cultural activities.
