Time Out says

Over the past 20-plus years Boots Riley has been on the music scene with his radical political commentary, and he shows no signs of slowing down. The activist/vocalist/writer, joined by the musicians who make up The Coup, will play a 21+ show at The Satellite this November. Influenced by the punk, funk and hip-hop genres—think The Clash, Japanther and Rage Against the Machine—the band may not fit into one category, but always performs music that's "aggressive and danceable," according to Riley. Look out for songs from all 6 of their albums, including their latest, Sorry To Bother You (2012).
