What better way to close down a sweltering weekend than with a set from one of hip-hop's up-and-coming acts at the House of Blues?  Sunday night Oregon- born, LA- based ZZ Ward brings her unique blend of hip-hop, blues and smoky vocals to the main stage in benefit of her late 2012 debut LP 'Til The Casket Drops'.  More from Big Hassle Media:

ZZ started out playing in her father's blues band at dive bars around Oregon when she was 12 years old. A talented songwriter with a big voice and an encyclopedic knowledge of hip hop, she put out a mixtape early last year flipping Kendrick Lamar Tyler the Creator, and more, and Kendrick, Fitz & the Tantrums and Freddie Gibbs are on her acclaimed debut album, Til The Casket Drops. She's spent the last year selling venues across North America with everyone from Grace Potter to Gary Clark Jr., and is embarking on her own headlining tour this fall. She's been on Good Morning America, Leno, Conan, and and her songs have been featured in Nashville, The Voice, Pretty Little Liars and MTV's Awkward. A remix EP with Passion Pit, Dave Sitek, Com Truise and Schoolboy Q is due later this year.

Doors @ 6:30, opener James Bay takes the stage at 7:30 in advance of support The Wild Feathers and the headliner.  See you there!
