The Coup's Bus is on the Road

The Coup’s tour bus, “Detroit Red”, aka “Ruby Dee”, was spotted on the streets of West Oakland just before they took off on tour last week. This is the bus the band bought with help from their supporters via kickstarter. It’s a 1980 MCI-9 with a Detroit Diesel 8v71 engine. Now catch this incredible band when they bring their politically charged dance party to the town near you.
