Donnis is no newcomer to the hip hop game, spending the last few years compiling a number of mixtapes, joining various indie-flavored tours, and last June releasing his first EP, Fashionably Late. He returns to San Francisco this Saturday immediately following the release of his mixtape Southern Lights with an instore meet-and-greet listening session and afterparty at SOM.
Francis and the Lights first performed in college, singing the entire The Immortal Otis Redding while backed by a young band. He has since gone on to gather new bandmates, release an emotion-filled album, and write music for rapper Drake. He performs tomorrow at a sold-out SF show before heading to Coachella.
