American rapper and performance artist B.Dolan comes to the Arches, Glasgow for a performance with Dan Le Sac, as well as live solo shows from Dan Le Sac and Buddy Peace.

Performance artist, rapper, MC and political activist B.Dolan has, for the past decade, been earning himself a well deserved reputation for his live shows. In turns smart, hilarious, surprising, serious, energetic and absurd, they sum up his shape-shifting existence as an artist by mixing hip hop, rap, spoken word and performance art, with his alter egos Bombzo Way and Evel Knievel often making guest appearances.

Touring internationally since 2005, he made his chops in New York’s burgeoning spoken word scene as a teenager, going on to perform in poetry championships and win numerous slam titles. He was soon adding music – mainly hip hip and rap – and political activism to the mix.

Critics jumped on board when his first demo, The Failure, was re-released by Sage Francis, his buddy and co-founder of knowmore.org, a consumer activist site run by the pair. Heralded as a genre-defying classic by those in the know, it also won him a group of die hard fans who’ve stuck with him to witness his continual reinvention. His mixtape House Of Bees vol. 1 in 2009 was followed by his debut album Fallen House, Sunken City in 2010. A decidedy hip hop affair, it was celebrated by rap legends, critics and members of the underground hip hop scene.

This tour sees him perform live with hip hop producer/DJ Dan Le Sac (one half of dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip), as well as solo performances from Dan Le Sac and mixtape maestro Buddy Peace.
