    Public Enemy….sweet.

    • Ben Salmon says:

      Agreed. That would be so sweet. Don’t think the Schwab has ever hosted a hip-hop show … if they could pair PE with Shabazz Palaces? MIND = BLOWN.

  2. A.C. says:

    I like that idea….That’s one show at Les Schwab that I’d definitely go to. Chuck D has one of the best deliveries ever, in my opinion.

    Chalk up another vote for Public Enemy. Absolutely agreed about Chuck D.
