This Friday in collaboration with Beaus brewery, we are beyond excited to host one Canada’s most iconic hip hop artists, K-OS, who will be rolling through and gracing us with a DJ set. Kevin Brereton better known by his stage name K-OS is a Canadian alternative rapper, singer and record producer. k-os' music incorporates a wide variety of music genres, including rap, funk, rock, and reggae. The lyrics frequently focus on promoting a "positive message" while at times expressing criticism of mainstream hip hop culture's obsession with money, fame and glorification of violence. A musician as well as a producer, k-os has written and produced nearly every part of all four of his albums. k-os usually performs with a live band, something that is uncommon in the hip hop genre. He sometimes plays guitar and keyboard both during live performances and in the studio.
We will also have a very limited run of some of Beau’s tasty beers on tap. Make sure to give one (or 2) a try.
The Common will be closed from January 1-8 for our annual winter break. We will be back to regular hours starting January 9th. Make sure to stay tuned for news on upcoming events at both the Common & 9910.
