Incoming: Combichrist, Buddy Guy, John Mayall, EPMD, Warren G

​It's a lighter load for this week's incoming shows -- mostly due to the fact that we had two different sets of incoming shows last week. That's not to say that there aren't some doozies amongst this week's announcements, though. 

For those fans of old-school hip hop, we have EMPD making a ruckus in the Valley. Erick "E" Sermon and Parrish "PMD" Smith are back at it again, rekindling their partnership that brought forth such old school hip hop hits as "Strictly Business" and "You Gots To Chill." Not one to be outdone, G Funk pioneer Warren G is joining the fray, bringing a show of his own through Tempe. Most remember Warren G for his smash 1994 hit "Regulate" from the Above The Rim soundtrack. Others remember Warren G from his "appearance" in episode 7 of the beloved Yacht Rock series. 

"This is gonna be some good-ass banana bread" indeed. Joining EPMD and Warren G with just announced shows of their own are Combichrist, Buddy Guy and John Mayall
