Dr Octagon

He's wacky, he's unpredictable, he's Kool Keith. The experimental rapper can be seen performing at the Fillmore on February 18 under his breakout persona, Dr. Octagon. He'll be joined at the show by his Dr. Octagon collaborators Dan The Automator and DJ Qbert.

Though the group's first and only official release, Dr Octagonecologyst, was back in 1996, fans continue to hang on to the novelty of the album. The record finds Kool Keith playing an extraterrestrial surgeon who raps about his psychedelic professional experiences over trip-hop inspired beats. Dan The Automator produced the project in his San Francisco home, and SF's DJ Qbert provided the abstract scratches heard throughout the album.

The group performed live as a trio for the first time at the Independent last March. Now, they are back in San Francisco, with new music in the future. Kool Keith recently announced that the next Dr Octagon project is on the way.
