Hed PE, one of the pioneering bands of raprock, or “G-Rock” as they refer to it (gangsta rap and rock), has never ceased to be shocking and cutting edge. Since their 1994 formation in Huntington Beach, California, the band has garnered attention from the punk and metal scenes, as well as from the hardcore rap scene, and have put out nine studio albums. They’re inherently political, and that’s something that their music definitely doesn’t shy away from, to say the least. In the current lineup, the only founding member left is singer Jared Gomes, but the band still is as passionate as ever, and the show will definitely be lively.
