Tony Simon, or Blockhead as he is known in hip-hop nation, is one of the genre’s most influential producers and performers. He collaborated with underground/alternative rapper Aesop Rock to notorious effect and also released important breakbeat work—Blockhead’s Broke Beats—before launching a career as a beat maker who joined forces with artists like Slug, Maclethal and Illogic, defining him as one of the main proponents of indie and underground rap music. Never one to rest on his laurels, Blockhead is currently touring the USA to demonstrate his prowess and commitment to the growling and glitchy monster he helped birth. Blockhead will be at Sister (407 Central Ave. NW) on Thursday, Nov. 9, to perform work from his latest effort, Funeral Balloons. 9pm • $12 • 21+
