Perry Street Shakedown’s big headliner

For its second year, the promoters of Perry Street Shakedown decided to reach for the stars, asking Washington’s own master of hip-hop Sir Mix-A-Lot to headline their South Perry District party. Surprisingly, the MC accepted, and is headling the event running from Sept. 11 -13

Yes, you read that right, the “Baby Got Back” artist is headlining a free, all-ages show in the not-super-large South Perry Pizza parking lot. The rapper was last in the area for a Halloween show up in Sandpoint.

“Sir Mix-A-Lot seemed really interested in the event itself,” says John Siok, South Perry Pizza owner. “He was willing to do it because he’s a Seattle boy, so it’s not too far away. He liked the community aspect of what we were doing.”

Last year’s Perry Street Shakedown included mostly local indie rock, hip-hop and funk acts, along with bands from Portland and Vancouver, B.C. 

A full list of bands should be announced this week. We'll keep you updated. 

UPDATE: While the show is technically free and all-ages, this year's beer garden will take up most of the South Perry Pizza parking lot. The beer garden is 21+ and will have a $3 cover.
