The Coup & Mr Lif @ House of Blues, Friday, Dec 1

Did anybody go to The Coup show at the House of Blues sidestage on Friday? It might very well have been your last chance to see them in town for a while....

Revered hip/hop outfit The Coup will likely be
forced to cancel its current tour with Mr. Lif after its bus flipped and caught
fire early Saturday morning (December 2nd) in Imperial, California. The accident
occurred at approximately 3:50 a.m. some two hours east of San Diego following a
Friday night performance at The House of Blues.

All occupants managed to get off of the bus
before it became engulfed in flames and were transported to El Centro Regional
Medical Center. However, Silk-E, Mr. Lif’s DJ, Wiz, the group’s bus driver,
Glenn, incurred severe injuries requiring them to be flown to hospitals in San
Diego and Palm Springs. Silk-E suffered several broken ribs and a punctured lung
and Wiz suffered a deep laceration to the head and a broken leg.
