THE POWERFUL AND POLITICAL Gunpoets are a hip hop act that knows how to throw a party. Fronted by Dan “Rising Sun” Lisbe, his band mixes rap, rock, funk and pop under the emcee’s positive lyrics.
This summer, the act released “Shoot the Stars,” music with a message that inspires and uplifts the soul while moving the body to dance. Live, Lisbe and his rock-solid backing band provide a blisteringly good time, and frequently feature special guests and emcees.
Friday, April 1, the band will hit Castaways for a co-bill with Mike Brindisi & the New York Rock, another of Ithaca’s best live acts. Doors open at 8:00 p.m., show begins at 9:00 p.m., tickets are $8 at the door.
