Dre Day 2012 lineup announced
The yearly celebration of West Coast G-Funk great Dr. Dre's legacy, Dre Day, turns 10 this year. As has been the case for the previous nine Februarys, this thing is a serious dose of hip-hop and history.
Though its roots are in Minneapolis, the event has spread around the country and will even keep their heads ringin' in Paris this year.
Playing host again this year is the Triple Rock Social Club with assists from Burlesque and Felix from Heiruspecs on the mic throughout the night.
Felix's bandmates in Heiruspecs will headline the night, playing their funkdafied live tribute to Dre on his birthday, and Get Cryphy's Jimmy2Times and Plain Ole Bill will keep things going in between.
Attendees can also expect giveaways, new merch from Burlesque, and of course, big fat 40 oz's all night long. Sounds like a party to us.
