Zion-I: Neither Rain nor Sleet nor Snow

impulseCalifornia rappers can be somewhat less weatherproof than their East Coast counterparts, or their friends from the Midwest. You’ll probably never see Dre and Snoop wearing parkas for utility, only as a fashion statement on the beach.

Zion I, the legendary Bay Area rap duo, is apparently a bit hardier. The recent snowgnarok (What? I don’t care for snowmageddon or snowpocalypse…) in early February caused their show (with Bend’s own Jay Tablet) to be cancelled.

But don’t lose heart. It takes a nation of trillions (of snowflakes) to hold them back. The show is rescheduled for this Sunday, March 2 at Impulse on Monroe Avenue. Tickets are still $15, doors at 8 p.m., show starts at 10 p.m.
