"Treasures Benefit feat. Pigeon John"

Having toured with Peeping Tom and worked with local institutions like the LA Symphony and Brainwash Projects, feel-good Angeleno rapper Pigeon John lends his MC skills to another super-charged project tonight. Treasures — an organization run by his wife, Harmony — helps women regroup and reorganize after exiting the sex industry. More than just a hip-hop show and benefit, tonight's party also celebrates the release of The Diamond Collection, a CD produced by Pigeon John that includes a new track from the master MC alongside material from PeterDaily, Lij, Joyo Verlarde, and Dawkins & Dawkins.

The name means ‘child’, and while Lij is all woman, there is a vulnerability to these songs, to Lindsay's voice, that is clearly drawn from a place of uninhibited innocence.
