To Infinity and Beyond

Saturday, Sep 3: Watsky Performs Live

In search of rap that's about more than hoes and getting turnt at the club? Cruise over to Sunshine Theater on Saturday, Sept. 3, to experience WATSKY, Witt Lowry, Daye Jack and Chuckwudi Hodge. George Watsky is a spoken word artist, rapper, poet and author who has just released his newest studio album, x Infinity, and let me tell ya, he's rad. Don't believe me? Check out his performance as Shakespeare in "Epic Rap Battles of History," the flaming-hot "Whoa Whoa Whoa" from All You Can Do, or the fact that he won the Brave New Voices National Poetry Slam in 2006. He tackles complex issues like school shootings, politics, immigration, social media and the bizarreness of the modern human experience with wit and a badass beat. Tickets are $20 for general admission to this all-ages show and doors open at 7pm. Sunshine Theater • Sat Sep 3 • 7pm • $20-$55 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
