The Triggermen

 Austin, Texas, USA
BandHip HopAlternative

"Two MCs and one DJ mixing a set of jazz, hip-hop and punk with a bit of paraphrasing and a catchy dash of school-yard slam."


Who are we?

A band of degenerate “party-rappers,” seducing crowds with an off-shoot brand of power-ballads and sing-a-longs.

It sounds like People Under the Stairs battling Gary Busey in a UFC style cage fight, with additional combatants Kool Keith, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, and The Beach Boys (Surf-Hop?), in for the tussle.

We’ve performed with fellow hip-hop deviants Blowfly, MC Frontalot, Astronautalis and The Flobots. Rocked with the punks from the Riverboat Gamblers to the Ape-Shits. And warmed up the stage for “The World’s Funny Man,” Neil Hamburger.
