Choices! At times we long for them, but once we finally have them we’re paralyzed by the thought of having to choose. Luckily, in this case at least, we don’t! Tonight we’re going to run across the whole damn town because there are two fantastic hip-hop shows, and we want to revel in it all. At 12th & Porter, local performance-rights organization ASCAP is throwing their weight behind our local hip-hop heavyweights Ducko McFli, Kaby and Island Hustle Society, whose new single “Warrants” might just be the most bangin’ humble brag we’ve heard in years. If you head due west from there straight to The End, there’s even more stellar hip-hop happening with a rare performance from local doom-hop ensemble Last of The Horseman and the man, the beard, the legend, Spoken Nerd.
