Sept. 7th: Masta Ace x EMC @ Zen Lounge
One of the best rappers alive will be swinging through the Queen City this Sunday. At the recent DJ Abilities extravaganza, I was very impressed with Zen Lounge, which feels like stepping into a foreign country, if not another planet altogether. Great bar, too. Overall, an ideal setting for an intimate Sunday night with a living legend.
This is not a nostalgia cruise, though: Masta Ace is still dropping gems right now in 2014, and currently touring with his group eMC, which includes the Lyricist Lounge duo Punchline & Wordsworth (easily one of the best writers in rap) as well as Milwaukee madman Stricklin. Opening acts are Lynguistic Civilians and local upstarts Maiden Voyage, who I'm looking forward to seeing live. In short, an absurdly stacked bill, as usual, from Vermonty Burns Productions.
Tickets are $15 at the door, $10 in advance -- and you can get those advance tickets at Wildlife Clothing, which is located upstairs on 161 Main Street.
See you at the bar. Did I mention it's a great bar?
