Sage Francis, B. Dolan and Sleep


Alhambra Theatre (map) Southeast

You might find the music of Paul "Sage" Francis at the intersection of a poetry slam and a hiphop show. Though his sound is sometimes frenzied and his beats aren't the most resonant, his words are poetry, creating rich visuals and evocative messages. His verses veer between intensely personal and political, wrapped in a dramatic delivery, transforming hiphop into his own personal genre. Much like his earlier work, Sage's new album Copper Gone is filled with songs that aren't always immediately accessible, with no obvious melody or hook, but his lyrics are so intelligent and complicated that you're compelled to keep listening.
