The ten best concerts this weekend: Nov. 23-25

4. THE COUP @ SUMMIT MUSIC HALL | SAT, 11/24/12
From Tupac to Too Short, the Bay Area has consistently produced a wealth of talented hip-hop artists over the years. Oakland duo the Coup, featuring MC Boots Riley and DJ/producer Pam the Funkstress, is yet another exceptional export. Falling somewhere between the political declarations of former peace activist Abbie Hoffman and the over-the-top sarcasm of fellow Oaktown crew the Digital Underground, Riley's lyrical tirades are both poignant and spot-on as he tackles everything from the war in Iraq to his love of shoplifters. Backed by a band that provides a unique dimension to its already compelling live show, the Coup is underground NoCal hip-hop at its best.
