A festival highlighting “glass, music and medicine” — in other words, pot culture — Chalice California brings together a small but eclectic musical lineup centered around the makers and users of that greatest piece of marijuana-inspired folk art, the glass waterpipe. Between checking out the latest in pipe technology, attendees of the two-day celebration on Saturday can get their nod on to the funky beats of Oakland hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics and their grittier East Bay neighbor, E-40, or freak-dance to the jammier Sunday lineup, which includes electro-rockers STS9 and the Primus-meets-bluegrass pick-a-thons of Les Claypool's Duo de Twang. Further down Saturday's bill, don't sleep on motor-mouthed Kansas City rapper Mac Lethal or the jungle/reggae/chopped 'n' screwed mash-ups of DJ collective Haggard & Friends. Also Sunday, July 13.
Sat., July 12, noon, 2014
