2008 West Coast Beatbox Championship 

When: Sat., June 21, 9 p.m. 2008
Price: $15

Decades after Doug E. Fresh and the Fat Boys showed that the human mouth can serve as a kick, snare, and high hat all by itself,beatboxing has become a legitimate artform with its own canon and lineage of masters. People who excel at the art take it beyond simple gulps and "boom chick" articulations to make actual drum patterns, which are sometimes more studied and varied than what you'll hear in the average hip-hop break. Local luminaries include Kid Beyond and Infinite, who's best known as the frontman for Felonious. They'll perform at Saturday's 2008 West Coast Open Beat Box Championships, hosted by Jamie DeWolf and Joshua Walters. Held Saturday, June 21 at Ashkenaz (1370 San Pablo Ave., Berkeley). 8 p.m., $15.
