Tonight: Andre Nickatina at the Bluebird
On his grind for almost two decades, Andre Nickatina -- who at one time went by Dre Dog -- has released over a dozen albums, mostly through his own imprints. On the road now in support of his forthcoming album, Khan! The Me Generation, the cocaine rapper and movie producer is due tonight at the Bluebird Theater with Smoov-E, Mike P, Mubls, Raider Dave and Cryptic Wisdom.
Becoming a living legend in his hometown of San Francisco while touring relentlessly to spread the Bay Area word, Nickatina has also collaborated with many of his peers, including a 2008 album, A Tale of Two Andres, which acted as both a joint effort and a tribute to the late Mac Dre. This show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $26-30. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the performances begin at 8 p.m.
