Devin The Dude - Acoustic Levitation TOur
The Promontory is thrilled to welcome DEVIN THE DUDE on 4/20.
Devin has been an underground icon since The Dude was released in 1998 with virtually no video and little radio play. The Dude was a smoothed-out, funk-laden album and an ode to wine, women, and weed. The album built a large underground following and even caught the attention of veteran hip-hop producer Dr. Dre. He contacted Devin in 1999 and asked him to be a part of the 2001 album on the track "Fuck You." This single appearance made Devin a hot commodity, earning him appearances on songs with De La Soul, Raphael Saadiq, veteran rap group UGK, and a solo track on the Oz soundtrack.
His anticipated sophomore LP, Just Tryin' ta Live, was released in the summer of 2002 and featured appearances from Nas, Xzibit, and Raphael Saadiq with production from Dre, DJ Premier, and his Coughee Brothas. To tha X-Treme arrived two years later and was followed in 2007 by Waiting to Inhale, his first album to crack the Top 40 on Billboards album chart. A year later, Landing Gear became his first album for the Razor & Tie label. Suite #420 followed in 2010 and had the honor of being released on the stoners holiday of April 20th (4/20).
Weather pending, this event will have a mandatory coat check. Coat Check is $3 per coat.
