After that, listeners are invited to camp out at aforementioned Launchpad (618 Central SW)—JK, Joe—for Sunday night’s performance by rapper extraordinaire Waldo. He’ll be there on Oct. 23, as part of the Be Ever Wonderful Tour, for a show that promises to bring to fruition the power of popular music so mournfully lacking in much rocanrol these days. Waldo demonstrates his growing mastery of the genre on work such as the recording Pick Your Own Poison. Tuneage like “Scars” and “Pray For Me” demonstrate an affinity for fellow Midwest marvels like Kid Cudi and Eminem, blending an R&B basis and complex, inside-the-line rhymes with a affirmative outlook the artist says is a result of saying positive things, “especially with how the world is today man. You know they trying to scare us with diseases and war and it’s just like you need sunshine every once in awhile. You need to hear something that just makes you feel good as a human being, man. So I took that as a personal responsibility to make sure that I’m influencing the listeners in a positive way.” Support for this vision of urban loveliness will be provided by up and coming harbingers of hip-hop The SEVENth, Khali Sol, Kemist and DJ Oneder. This all-ages (13+) manifesto of hope and hell-raising begins at 8pm and can be yours for a measly seven Washingtons.
