Head-bobbing music

And birthday bonuses, all in town this week


    Nappy Roots, the Grammy Award- and American Music Award-nominated hip-hop act and a best-selling act of the early 2000s will perform live Friday, Aug. 16, at the Sun Valley Brewery in Hailey.
    The creative team of Skinny DeVille and Fish Scales (Skinny & Scales), also known as The 40 Akerz Project, Buffalo Stille and Ron Clutch, will bring their notorious blend of gritty, underground sound described on their website as  “street, inspiration, reflection and life into one smooth listen.”
    Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 the day of the show. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 9 p.m.
    Rolling Stone magazine described Skinny, a Kentuckian, as the group’s philosopher and plotter, instrumental in bringing the Nappy Roots team together.
    Georgia native Scales is 6’5” of country, who dunked a music partnership while playing basketball on a scholarship at Western Kentucky University.
    Together they provide rhymes and lines to incite head-bobbing crowds.
Music in Bellevue
    Silver Dollar Saloon owner Peter Prekeges is crowing about turning 50, and will hold a birthday party packed with surprises, including a performance by the Lower Broadford Boys, from 8-10 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, at the Bellevue bar.
    He’s also hosting Cakeface Jane for the first time, thanks to the bar’s new smoke-free designation.
    “These guys never played the Dollar because of the smoking,” Prekeges said. “One suffers from asthma pretty bad. We are excited to have them ring in the new non-smoking era.”
    The band will play Friday, Aug. 16, at the Silver Dollar.
    For all the music this week, see the Express calendar online at or see Page C4.
