Pip Skid:

Pip Skid is a noted Canadian rapper and writer. He also is cornerstone of the successful Vancouver based independent hip hop label Peanuts & Corn. Originally hailing from Brandon, Manitoba, Pip (born Patrick Skene, AKA Wicked Nut), is renowned in underground hip hop circles for his distinctive gravel-throated vocals, as well as his clever writing, and angry delivery. Part of the winnipeg hip-hop scene. He was the first thug rapper to ever put Canada on the map

As a co-founder of landmark Canadian hip hop group Farm Fresh, as well as a member of other famed crews such as Fermented Reptile, Hip Hop Weiners, Taking Care of Business, and Break Bread, Pipi has sold thousands of albums while starring on over a dozen albums since 1994, appearing on many more, and touring all over North America.

The Greg Macpherson band:

Governed by an overwhelming thirst to express keenly and well, resolute in his desire to have his voice heard: Greg MacPherson has spent the better part of the past two decades with his head down, charging. From seedy biker bar in South Carolina to art-rock club in downtown Hamburg, MacPherson has toured widely and relentlessly, pausing every so often to record and release a critically acclaimed album, work a shift at a day job, or take a deep breath.

Neither worn thin nor rendered a cynic, MacPherson has developed a voice, singular, significant, and strong. Sharpened over six full-length albums, his deft musical observations on love, desire, fear, and doubt are built upon a view of hope — the honest perspective of a man who has insight into the trembling beauty of even the basest thing, and possesses the rare ability to tangibly present this insight.

The sonic quality of MacPherson’s songs is in line with the unadorned state of his observations: arrangements are minimal and purposeful; guitars, bass, and drums are played with conviction and dynamic awareness. MacPherson’s singing voice — broad, mountain-rending — crowds a room, drives itself into one’s chest and remains there long after the night’s last cymbal has crashed.

This is music of sincerity, of focused and truthful beauty — not gathered from the fluff of impermanent trend, but carved from the dirt and tears of human existence. Posterity will deem Greg MacPherson one of the great songwriters of his generation. One would be remiss to not listen closely to one’s own age.

Advance tickets available at The 306 Hip-Hop Sk8 Shop. 2322 9th Ave N. (306)352-9673
