Hip-hop artist Andre Nickatina headlines Whiskey Dick’s Saloon

Whiskey Dick's Saloon welcomes Andre Nickatina on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Hip-hop and rap are the stars at this weekend's gig at Whiskey Dick's Saloon, which features the talents of Andre Nickatina.

"Without saying so, Nickatina has had his finger on the pulse of what is raw, uncut and capable of capturing the mind and ears of listeners.

"Never one to follow or ride trends, Andre Nickatina is a rare breed of artist. One of the last original trend-setters. Nickatina does not do what the people want, rather the people want to know what Dre will do next," states a press release from Late-Nite Productions.

The hip-hop and rap artist, born and raised in San Francisco, has had a strong following in the Bay Area for well over a decade.

"The longevity of Nickatina speaks for itself. An award-winning MC and producer (2005 Bay Area Artist of The Year / Album of The Year for 'Bullets'), Nickatina's vision has expanded beyond the 18 albums (and hundreds of thousands of sales) that he has executive-produced," continues the release.

In addition to Nickatina, Tip-C, Deeday and DJ (R)Styles will perform at the show.
