@BlueScholars
A few hours ago, Blue Scholars pulled up next to Caffe Vita in an SUV, popped the trunk, plugged a mic into a PA, and played three songs from their new OOF! EP (available today at Vita). While Geo rapped, Sabzi mingled with fans and snapped photos. The dudes will be playing these secret shows all day long, leading up to a CD release party tonight at Ohana in Belltown. Next stop is the 42nd & the Ave at 1:15pm. Check their twitter page for updates, and check out their new video courtesy of The Stranger!
