With 97 stops pegged, the tour needs the best possible opening acts to capture the energy of the audience and keep the momentum going – a daunting task to some, but also a rite of passage. Strange Music caught up with some of the upcoming opening acts on the Hostile Takeover 2012 Tour, here is what they had to say.
Opening up for the 5/18 show at The Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, Colorado is BLKHRTS.
Tell us a little bit about yourself – how long you’ve been in the game, your inspirations, and your aspirations.
BLKHRTS is Yonnas, FOE, and Karma. We’ve been making music our entire lives. We are inspired by Sex, Drugs, Violence, Money and Death. We worship Mozzie and Siouxsie (Morrissey and Siouxsie) and we want to cover the whole world in rich, black gold.
How does it feel to be part of a legendary, world-record setting hip-hop tour?
It is truly in an honor.
How long have you been down with Strange Music?
This will be our third show with Strange but I remember first listening to TechN9ne on the Gridlock’d Soundtrack. Questions was the song. To this day, that is still one of the most impressive rap recordings I’ve ever heard.
What can the Technicians expect out of your show?
Anything you would like to say to the Technicians coming out to the show?
Thank you for supporting independent hip-hop. We owe you our lives.
