When entering S.O.B.’s tonight, it might be best to follow the instructions Stasia Irons of THEESatisfaction lays out in “QueenS”: “Turn off your swag and check your bag,” she says on the intro, before joining partner Catherine Harris-White in an understated “Whatever you do, don’t funk with my groove” on the hook. Since joining fellow Seattleites Shabazz Palaces for 2011’s “Swerve,” that groove has been nearly untouchable, attracting the eye of local label Sub Pop and the ears of listeners across the country. Njena Reddd Foxxx, the local rapper who offered to “take that bitch to college” on Zebra Katz’s breakout “Ima Read,” opens. L.A.’s Pharcyde close with a separate admission late show, where they’ll be playing their 1992 master, Bizarre Ride II, in its entirety.
