Big Grams Perform at LA Pop-Up Shop
"Cooler than a polar bear's toenails!" With one of the best projects of 2015 out in stores and the cover of the upcoming issue of FLOOD Magazine, it seemed like a fairly good time for Big Grams (the collaborative effort between Big Boi and Phantogram) to be celebrating...and that is exactly what they did!

During the performance, Big Grams reportedly ran through many songs from their self-titled EP, which was released last month via Epic Records.
