Wasteland Hop

Friday Night - 10:45pm to 11:30pm @ Drunken Monkey | 21+

Blues Rock Hip-Hop

Wasteland Hop carves a unique space into your imagination, a space where one feels the soulful pourings of Janis Joplin interlaced with the cerebral speech of Aesop Rock. This live 6 piece band designs a new, original sound via violin, guitars, drum and bass plus the potent back and forth energy between leading vocalist Steph Jay and MC Mickey Kenny. Wasteland Hop has played with Flobots, Air Dubai, Zion I, Talib Kweli and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Wasteland Hop played SXSW 2014 as part of the Colorado Music Party. Scene Magazine ran a cover story in January 2014 calling Wasteland Hop the leading talent in The Fort. Greta Cornett of The Bohemian Foundation sees the band as one on the cusp, saying Wasteland Hop are poised to take that next big leap.
