MC III TONE will be live Saturday at the Mex Pub as he returns to his hometown with special guests.

Ill Tone will perform at the Mex Pub this Saturday with his new crew of vocalists and musicians.

The show will feature Ill Tone (formerly of Broken Logic), a Comox Valley-born MC/lyricist, along with Herokah (currently of Broken Logic), a beautiful and talented singer/songwriter.

Also performing alongside the two vocalists will be DJ Optimus on the turntables, Bob Westfall on guitar, and Bill Haggerty on drums.

As the year comes closer to its end, Ill Tone is excited to make it back to the Valley for one last performance in 2011.

In addition to Ill Tone and his guests, the Butterfinger Bombsquad, a local duo of MCs known for their witty, intelligent lyrics and charismatic showmanship, will perform a set. Frantic Peace will open the show with a short set that will surely be packed full of positivity.

Ill Tone has been making music and performing around the West Coast of B.C. for a number of years, and as a result, has had many opportunities to open for talented, well-known artists such as Tech N9ne, Maestro Fresh Wes, Digable Planets, Sweatshop Union, Swollen Members, Mobadass, DNA6, and many others.

In 2010, Ill Tone released his first solo EP, MAN v.s. CLOWN, as a free download. The project was featured by both hip-hop Canada (along with a full interview) and the Word TV.

The single Time gained radio play on a number of British Columbian community-campus radio stations.
