Underground Hip-hop summit tonight at Sonotheque
OK, so it's not really an underground hip-hop summit...but the leaders of two of the hottest underground hip-hop labels out right now will be manning the decks tonight at one of Chicago's hottest clubs. Peanut Butter Wolf, head of Stones Throw Records and El-P, leader of the amazing Definitive Jux label will both be playing DJ sets tonight at Sonotheque. There is going to be some serious beats dropped at this performance, another amazing line-up put together by Sonotheque and Biz 3 publicity. Besides putting out hot records from the likes of Madlib, Charizma and the Lootpack, Peanut Butter Wolf is also well known around the world for his stellar remixes and skilled work behind the turntables. El-P is arguably one of the best hip-hop producers at work today and he ain't too shaby behind the mic either. Oh yeah, he's also the head of Definitive Jux records, home to RJD2, Aesop Rock, Cannibal Ox and Mr. Lif. Trust me, if you have any interest whatsoever in hip-hop and electronic music, you do not want to miss this show. Doors open 8, show is at 9. Admission is $7, 21+ only. Sonotheque is located at 1444 W. Chicago Ave.
