If I threw all of August’s show into a churning cauldron and then drew one out without melting my flesh away so that it would become part of that melodious soup, I am pretty damn sure this is the one I would draw out. Blackalicious, that is Gift of Gab and Chief Xcel, are making an appearance and giving a concert at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) on Tuesday, Aug. 28. This may not be your last opportunity to grok the febrile fruit of rocanrol’s successor, but it will surely be one to rock your world into something blazingly hot and bright, in coicidence with the end of summer itself. Get this: It’s the next logical progression! Blackalicious is one of the funked out flavors where alt.hip-hop began, all jazzy, bumped out, multisyllabic and mysterious. Disclosure: I totally dig this shit. Check out “Make You Feel That Way” or “40oz for Breakfast.” Or better yet, Show up! Def-I, Saywut!? and Speed One open. 9pm • $15 • 21+.
