In this edition of Bay Area Beats, Enon talks about the rush and raw energy in combining hip-hop and punk.
After winning a music competition in 2015, Oakland hip-hop artist Enon Gaines wanted to create a band that could match his energy. He met with musicians with different musical backgrounds and founded the group Unlikely Heroes. They mix hip-hop bars with punk melodies and riffs.
Unlikely Heroes is playing at the Ivy Room next Thursday, July 25.
