Boombox Saints living at Alberni’s Rainbow Room

Vancouver based hip-hop-slash-R&B group Boombox Saints hits The Rainbow Room in Port Alberni this Friday, March 22.

Consisting of Freeky P, Adlib, Huggy Fresh and DJ Relik, this quartet of sneaker fiends, street-wear enthusiasts and addicted to fresh junkies have an uncanny ability to capture the attention of anyone within earshot of their own brand of hip-hop & R&B infused pop.  Boombox Saints have garnered considerable media attention for their quality of music and hyped performances alongside some of today’s most successful and respected acts: J. Cole, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Mos Def, Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli and Souls of Mischief, to name a few.

The Boombox Saints released their debut album For The Moment in October 2012.

Recorded over 10 months from late 2011 into 2012, For The Moment is a brutally honest narrative of each individual’s experiences with life’s highs and lows, family struggles and painful personal relationships.

The Boombox Saints hit the stage at 9 p.m. at The Rainbow Room. Tickets are $10 in advance ($15 at the door) and available at Rainbow Lanes on Fourth Avenue.
