December 7th: Nappy Roots in Barre @ Gustos
What in the...? This one snuck up on us: Nappy Roots is playing Gustos in Barre this Saturday night. Apparently there are no local openers, just a house DJ until the show starts. $10 cover, 21+.
2013 has been a banner year for damn strange hip hop shows in Vermont. N.O.R.E. coming through a venue called "Venue," Chance the Rapper wasting his time in Middlebury, Dice Raw showing up at Das Bierhaus, and now Nappy Roots in Barre. It definitely seems like what the Vermont scene needs the most right now is promoters who actually promote.
I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing at the end of 2014, though: so it goes.
