Aesop Rock, Busdriver, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz
Spend an evening with a verbal acrobat when we host the Missoula debut of San Francisco indie hip hop stalwart Aesop Rock. If you don’t know Aesop, know this: He’s considered one of the most innovative MCs in the indie rap game due to his use of complex rhyme schemes, abstract wordplay, off kilter references, and distinctly refreshing flow. Simply put, he’s an inventive cat who’s miles ahead of his peers in hip hop, and his talents have been recognized with releases on luminary indie hip hop labels like Rhymesayers Entertainment and Definitive Jux. He’ll be joined by Los Angeles’ Busdriver, an equally amazing rapper whose tongue twisting raps and razor sharp sarcastic humor has won the hearts of critics and fans worldwide. Bronx-based rapper Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz round out the bill in what we’re imagining will be one of the biggest, if not the biggest, hip hop shows we’ve ever hosted. Don’t sleep on this chance to see some legends tear it up in the Badlander! Advance tickets at Earcandy Music on March 1. $20 day-of-show/$17 advance plus fees. This show is 18+.
