PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS ON 2012 HIGHLIGHTER TOUR--COMING TO TULANE ON FEB 1

"The PUTS show is a straight open door house party. We focus on bringing that lost vibe, that funky get drunk and blow your mind party hip hop from another Era, explains Thes One of a PUTs show. "It's like public enemy enemy and the Beasties in crappy track suits going IN."

Since their initial full length release in 1998, they have performed more than a thousand sold out shows, festivals and world tours spanning 6 continents and 40 countries. With a pioneering DIY ethic, "The P" as they are referred to by their fans, have self-managed, produced and engineered 8 full-length albums and countless singles and side projects. 

The musical sensibility punctuating their unique brand of hip-hop has not only earned them the title "The Steely Dan of Rap Music," but consistent critical acclaim and numerous appearances on the _Billboard_ Charts. Their illustrious career includes an appearance on "The Simpson's 20th Anniversary Special," a John Peele Session at Abbey Road, and groundbreaking performances at key festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella and Bonaroo, the last of which was noted by _SPIN_ magazine as "Simply the best performance of Friday... Period". 

As part of their 10 year Anniversary World Tour in 2009, People Under The Stairs traveled to new continents with sold out shows in China, Brazil and Africa and continued to tour through 2010 with main stage plays at Outside Lands Festival, Governors Ball NYC and many others. 

After finishing their ambitious 8th Studio album Highlighter, The P completed sold out tours with Mac Miller and Girl Talk to close out 2011.

With the 2012 Highlighter Tour, PUTS come full circle, headlining shows and bringing fans what they are known best for: real boom bap hip-hop in a fun party atmosphere.
