(PACIFICA, CA) – Slide guitar, drums, piano. Urgent, desperate, edgy. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to “make it”, who “got it”, who lost it all, and somehow managed to find his way back. When you listen to Negrito, you’re invited to hear the story of life after destruction. For anyone who ever felt like it was over yet hoped it wasn’t, this is your music.
Longboard Margarita Bar presents Grammy Award winner Fantastic Negrito on Saturday, March 21st at Longboard Margarita Bar (180 Eureka Drive) Pacifica, California, just 15 minutes south of San Francisco. Doors open at 8pm and the ages 21+ show starts at 9pm. Longboard Margarita Bar is a premier 300-person capacity live music venue with a solid sound system and full-service bar located on the coast.
Fantastic Negrito is the incarnation of a musician who is reborn after going through a lot of awful shit. In fact, the name Fantastic Negrito represents his third rebirth, literally coming back from death this time. The narrative on this man is as important as the sound because the narrative is the sound. Songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music.
In 2014, by playing on the streets of Oakland, Fantastic Negrito won the inaugural NPR Tiny Desk Contest. In 2016 he released his debut full-length album, The Last Days of Oakland, which went on to win a Grammy in 2017 for Best Contemporary Blues Album. And this year he won his second Grammy in the same category, for his critically acclaimed new release Please Don’t Be Dead. His third album Have You Lost Your Mind Yet? will be released in the summer of 2020.
