Many will flock to Billy O’s on Saturday, June 30 to see Guy Blakeslee (of The Entrance Band who bears an eerie resemblance to Syd Barrett ) and rightly so, but there’s another great reason to be there: Massenger.

Compton rapper Problem will perform at the Ventura Theater on Friday, June 29 with CaliKidZ, Kush House, Wun Shot and Kelley Kastro.
