October 29: Pigeon John at Broadway Niteclub

Sure, Pigeon John doesn’t swear much, he’s overly positive and he’s said in interviews that he got his name when Jesus Christ appeared in his car. See him live, however, and it’s evident that whatever motivates John in his personal life is working. In a constant pogo, Pigeon John delivers a steady stream of complex rhyme forms over never-stale beats, and always leaves a crowd wanting more. His latest album, Dragon Slayer, is a coup for indie label Quannum Projects, having been featured in a recent Volkswagen commercial, and his marriage to ex–porn star Harmony Dust can’t be all that bad either. See him pop off with lightning-fast opener Busdriver on Friday, Oct. 29, at 19 Broadway Niteclub. 19 Broadway, Fairfax. 10pm. $10–$12. 415.459.1091.
