Rhythms Music Festival: More about the performers

Grieves and Budo

This rapper and producer pair will be fresh off the plane from a European tour when they arrive to campus. They’re talented in separate ventures, but together they bring a blend of baritone verses and classy beats that will please indie fans and hip-hop heads alike.

Toro y Moi

As the brainchild of Chaz Bundick, the sun-bleached sounds of Toro y Moi have come to define a whole genre (sometimes jokingly) referred to as chillwave. But whatever it’s labeled, it’s good music to find your new summertime crush to. He’ll be gracing the stage at Lollapalooza this summer, but first, SF State.

The Hood Internet

Purists beware: This Chicago-based duo are armed with music mash-ups and they’re here to party. Mostly blending hip-hop and indie classics, they’ve expanded their tunes from thousands on the web to thousands at festivals. Catch them for a sneak peak of their nation-wide tour this summer.
