Oct. 12: Lyrics Born at Hopmonk

Global consciousness and a complex knowledge of alliteration and double entendres don’t usually fit themselves into the resume of most hip-hop artists. Lyrics Born, a rapper who found his roots in the melting pot of San Francisco culture, maintains that his style is a direct product of the open-mindedness and progressive thinking of the Bay Area. Lyrics Born makes the short drive from his hometown of Berkeley to Sonoma County on Wednesday, Oct. 12, at Hopmonk Tavern. 230 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $20. 707.829.7300.
