RBMA Comes to San Francisco This Week with Masters at Work and More

It was only a couple weeks ago that the folks from Red Bull Music Academy made the announcement that this year's festivities would be taking place in New York City. Apparently, the RBMA camp doesn't want to waste any time getting a foothold in the US, as it's hosting a short run of events in San Francisco this week, including a rare live performance from legendary house duo Masters at Work. Kicking off tomorrow, the three-day event series has been dubbed New York City to the SF Bay, and includes a night devoted to jazz with saxophonist Gary Bartz, Bilal, and Aloe Blacc on Wednesday, and a night of hip-hop on Thursday with Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito. Capping off the week is Friday night's dance-oriented event, which will be headlined by Masters at Work and also feature recent RBMA alumni Salva, Jesse Boykins III, and Ghosts on Tape. Masters at Work will be performing live with a full band, and the event will mark the first time the duo of Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope has performed together on the West Coast for several years. Check the flyer below for all the details.
