Black Pegasus returns to Pueblo, and Jarren Benton and Kato stop at the Black Sheep


Black P will play his first headlining Pueblo show in seven years due to what he describes as the city’s lack of stable venues.
  • Black P will play his first headlining Pueblo show in seven years due to what he describes as the city’s lack of stable venues.
Turning our attention to Pueblo, roots reggae act Lion Heights will perform on Aug. 3 at Smitty’s Greenlight Tavern. The Austin-based, Chicago-conceived act formed in 2013 and has performed as a backing band for notable Jamaican artists such as Lady G, Sister Nancy and Dawn Penn, as well as sharing stages with the legendary Lee “Scratch” Perry. Their latest LP, Same Situation, was released in June 2017 through Rebel Sound Records.

Rounding out a busy Aug. 3, local standout emcee Black Pegasus will also perform in Pueblo, at Mr. Tandoori Urban Bar and Grill, of all places.

“It’s my first time headlining in Pueblo in like seven years,” explains the emcee with a laugh. “Not because of lack of a fanbase — there are just no stable venues in that market. I feel like people from Pueblo are forced to see shows in the Springs and Denver because they always get passed over.”

In addition to his tireless promotion work through Brass Knuckle Gang (BKG), Black P also recently released a new music video, Hamborghini, which is the first single for his new, not-yet-titled project. Check it out and enjoy the, shall we say, ironic elements of the track, and you can probably derive some extra enjoyment from a few of the video’s comments on Youtube. After all, in Black Pegasus’ own words — nowadays, everyone’s hard in the comments.

Finally, at the Black Sheep on Saturday, Aug. 4, you can catch another show presented by BKG, as Georgia-based emcee Jarren Benton takes the stage joined by Atlanta-based producer Kato. The two artists recently teamed up for a collaborative LP, Yuck Fou, which was released just last week. It should be a show not to miss, as Benton cites Prince, Marilyn Manson and Method Man as performance influences, not to mention his intricate lyricism and penchant for giving his mixtapes excellent titles such as “Huffin’ Glue with Hasselhoff” and “Freebasing with Kevin Bacon.”
