Hip-hop comes in many forms, one of the most interesting of which can be found in the music of Dabrye, a glitch-hop project by producer Tadd Mullinix. His dense, Prefuse 73-esque electro-glitch breaks are stunning, lending themselves neatly to surreal rhymes from his friends, who include the illustrious likes of MF Doom. On his new record, Two/Three (Ghostly International), his work has taken on a particularly dark, psychedelic undercurrent. The show will feature one of the best MCs from the record, Kadence.

Mr. Lif

A veteran conscious rapper from Boston, Definitive Jux artist Mr. Lif erases the negative hip-hop cloud hanging over that city since it spawned Benzino. Though he’s been laying it down since 2001, Lif’s profile has been considerably upped over the past couple of years as a member of the Perceptionists, an underground supergroup he formed with Akrobatik and DJ Fakts One. Now Lif brings his politically tinged, old-school crowd-rocking abilities back to town in support of his new Mo’ Mega (Def Jux). (Garrett Caples)
