Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
Macklemore emerged on the Seattle music scene in 2005 as young musician, fresh out of college, and ready to conquer the world. Armed with what still stands as one of the region's classic Hip-Hop records, The Language of my World, Macklemore stood with members of a new breed of Seattle artist, alongside peers including the Blue Scholars and Common Market, bringing a level of enthusiasm, passion, energy, and artistry to a scene that welcomed him with open arms. Sharing stages with some of hip-hop's most respected and revered legends, Macklemore has spent the next several years honing his craft, perfecting his live show, and quietly preparing a storm of beauty to unleash on the world. Teaming up with producer and fellow Seattle-ite Ryan Lewis, the two released an EP titled Vs. in the fall of 2009, using the event as a milestone to begin a creative journey together that has yielded incredible results, and even more incredible promise for growth and development. The EP uses samples from many well known rock songs as a backdrop against which Macklemore weaves tales of addiction, family, history, and love. And he does so beautifully, almost effortlessly. With the sincerity of a person both blessed and afflicted with wisdom beyond his 28 years, he speaks without gimmick, intimidation, or grandstanding and yet, somehow, the listener...listens. Fully, attentively, and without compulsion. Hard at work on a new full-length record, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have chipped off the very surface of there immense promise and gift. See them perform now, buy their records, and know that you'll be taking part in a movement that will spread around the world.

Xperience - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Xperience
From the Volcano "2011 Olympia Best Readers Pick, Artist of the year, and Album of the year. I don't think there's anyone more deserving of this award than Xperience. During 2010 he was by far the most active hip-hop artist in the 360. From people begging him to play with them in Portland and Seattle to being flown out to the Midwest, Xperience has really helped establish a name for Olympia in the hip-hop community. As busy as he was in 2010 - playing shows practically every weekend - XP still managed to make enough time to drop his incredible sophomore album, William the VIII.
Xperience's rapping and singing abilities have landed him a lot of features on other well-known Northwest artists‘ albums, including a full-length album with Rhymesayers‘ recording artists Grayskul. Aside from his solo work, XP has also recorded a full-length album with one of the many side projects he works with, Sound Asylum, which consists of himself and fellow Olympians A.K.A. and Compost. While Sound Asylum has put out an album, the even better known Step Cousins (XP and Macklemore) have yet to, but fans have been buzzing about this collab for years. Macklemore and XP have many songs written and recorded together (including a few off Macklemore's first album), but both artists admit with Macklemore living in Seattle and XP staying in Olympia, it definitely makes it a little difficult - especially with the growing success of Macklemore's current work with Ryan Lewis.
Regardless, Xperience will remain a top Olympia hip-hop artist for the near future. But his time in Olympia may come to end at some point - his fan base keeps growing larger and he has massive potential for success in the bigger cities surrounding us.
The bottom line: Soak up as much Xperience as you can in Olympia before you have to take a long drive to see him live.
