Los Rakas 

When: Fri., May 8, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $15
When the Express last checked in with Los Rakas, the Panamanian-American hip-hop duo based in Oakland, Raka Rich and Raka Dun were thrilled about their upcoming appearance at Coachella — the Southern California festival known for heatstroke, the Tupac hologram, and career-defining sets. Upon the very mention of Coachella, the two bounded across the room of their management company’s headquarters, as if rehearsing a victory lap. And judging at the very least by Los Rakas social media postings from the festival, the preparation paid off: They met Paris Hilton. Really though, Raka Rich and Raka Dun are consummate performers, peppering hip-hop tropes with South American flourishes that come across with particular zest in concert. At Slim’s (333 11th St., San Francisco) next Friday, Skipper of the HBK Gang and Rey Res from San Jose are slated to open, which implies an open call to concertgoers to remind Los Rakas that the best audience is from the Bay Area.
